VOLTRON:

When I first heard that Disney was working on a live action Underdog I thought to myself, great! After all, it's Disney, they never let me down. I guess there's a first time for everything. What's with the real dog with the computerized mouth moving, please tell me that's not the best DISNEY can do? The plot which is also all wrong, is crime sniffing dog gets fired due to cut backs and ends up as a research dog for criminal mastermind Simon Barsinister and an accident gives him super powers, including speaking English. Yeah, because there are many BEAGLES that are Police Dogs.

Now he must save the world from Simon and his idiot sidekick Cad. Here is the short list of what's wrong with this movie...

1. UNDERDOG'S SECRET IDENTITY IS A SHOE SHINE BOY, NOT JUST HIS NAME
2. SIMON DOESN'T WALK WITH A CANE AND HE'S OLDER
3. UNDERDOG HAS HANDS, WITHOUT HANDS YOU CAN'T DRESS YOURSELF
4. THE PHONE BOOTH EXPLODES NOT SHATTERS
5. POLLY IS A REPORTER NOT JUST A PET
6. RIFF RAFF WEARS CLOTHES AND IS A WOLF NOT A DOG
7. NO FINGERS MEANS NO UNDERDOG RING AND HIS SUPER ENERGY PILL

Near the end Shoeshine jumps into a phone booth and it shatters revealing Underdog, how? Without fingers he could put on the costume and the costume has pants. What was the writer thinking? "Oh it's a dog and dogs can only be pets!" That's just stupid! It has a good cast, but that's not enough to save this ruined piece of dog droppings. When you create a world based on something else, you stick with the mythology of that world or you don't bother. I've picked up leavings from my dog better then this movie. We give this movie the NOOSE and at time like this I really wish I could use it!
