*spoilers* Could have easily been so much better
*contains spoilers* It was not a total waste of time, however there were so many stupid plotholes in there. State of the art artificial intelligence and it runs on regular gasoline? Why not a fuel cell, solar panels, or a fusion reactor or something. Programmed for combat, has armor plating that can stop a bullet, jet manages to impale itself on an iron rod, while playing chase. Same armor plating and all you need is some gasoline and pretty much a glorified lighter to pretty much completely destroy it? Can be rebuild in a few hours by 3D printing (y'all know that 3D printers are mostly using plastic right?) come to think of it... that would explain why you can just light the puppy up. After they rebuild it, it requires 48 hours to? To do what? Rebuild? Reboot? Load software? The same software it uploaded to the cloud in a few minutes? Just lazy lazy writing
some useful actors get work but the movie is a dog
They were not able to make the dog very appealing and (spoiler alert) it never does bite the bad guy in half. Thomas Jane and Eric Etebari got paychecks while waiting for a better offer, and Ted McGinley is in it. The guy playing Eric Etebari's IT henchman has a really good haircut. His friends should insist that he never change it. I was not able to identify him from the stingy credit list. This is one of those times when the message boards would have come in handy. Who is the actor who played the computer-savvy henchman, I could have asked. Somebody would know.
A billion dollar 'super' dog that's as effective as a loud barking Chihuahua
Okay I did enjoy A-X-L romping around the desert with miles on his dirt bike, flying through the air as they bonded. A kid and his billion dollar super dog. With that out of the way, at about 40 minutes into the movie I realized two things. This militarized billion dollar dog weapon, soooo scary looking with super growling 'teeth' was as dangerous as a kitten. Second was the scene where super dog faces off with the evil 18 year old. Does it matter what weapon the 18 year old has? After all he's facing a billion dollar 'weapon of war', right? Suffice to say A-X-L is no match for a teenager. Later, when he targets an evil teen he is unable to stop the teen from running away and diving under a car. At no time does this screenplay have A-X-L take down even a single evil peson whether evil teen or evil military contractor who created him. Sure, he can run and bark like heck... but no where do we see a billion dollar weapon in action. Also, one could ask why A-X-L escapes from his creators in the first place? Not a clue. After all, he was created to save the lives of our soldiers at war. Kind of a noble invention, yet as the movie begins he's gon AWOL. Why would he not wish to return to his creator and his mission to save our soldiers lives. That is in fact his prime directive, to bond with a single solder at war. It's not like he's a nuclear bomb we could debate. Again, screwy screenplay where evil creator is not really evil. One could say that A-X-L going AWOL was super dog being very, very bad dog! The notion one could build or rebuild an A-X-L in a garage with a soldering iron also left me scratching my head. Fun idea with an awful, nonsensical screenplay.
Good family film
Admittedly this is not an Oscar winner of any kind. However, I took my 8 year to see it and she loved it. I thought the story and acting was decent and the special effects good. Mostly I really enjoyed watching a non Disney animated film with my child that was free from bad language and constant references to sex. If you have kids go see this film - we thought it was a winner.
A Boy and not his Dog
Miles (Alex Neustaedter ) rides motor-cross but doesn't have the money to compete like arch rival Sam (Alex MacNicoll). Miles meets a girl (Becky G ) and a mechanical dog trained to kill by the military....not as cute or annoying as "Number 5" (Short Circuit). Military wants the dog back but not until Captain Kirk can bring out the android's feelings. Teen love story with a mechanical dog. BTW Miles was the name of the man in "Sleeper" who owned a mechanical dog.
