Kiara The Brave and Space Dogs Review
I was sent these movies from Phase4films.com to watch with my children. First, the bad. Kiara The Brave is not the movie your children might think it is. It is not the Pixar film Brave that is doing well in the movie theaters. Kiara The Brave is a dull film with subpar animation. If you are a parent watching this movie with your children, you will either fall asleep or cringe through the entire 80 minutes of the film. The film released in June 2012, Kiara takes viewers to Dreamzone, a peaceful and a magical kingdom under the rule of King Maximus. The serene kingdom faces sudden change when the king is captured and imprisoned by his evil brother, Dreadmis. The king's daughter, who is the courageious princess Kiara, must conquer evil and restore the kingdom. She must also get her father back and restore him to the throne.
My eight year old son said the movie was lame and boring. My six year old daughter was hoping Kiara was the princess she saw in the movie theater. She was disappointed with this movie. Kiara the Brave is like the evil boring part of the real Brave movie. There is some violence, but your children will be too bored to notice. The movie is rated PG and is a waste of your time and money.
Now the good. Space Dogs:
Space dogs is an animated tale based on the true story of Balka and Strelka, the two dogs sent to space in 1960 aboard Sputnik 5. Belka and Strelka are a circus dog and a rough-and-tumble dog who embark on an out of this world adventure, they become the world's most famous canine cosmonauts. Space Dogs is 88 minutes long and is rated G, it is a Phase 4 film release.
My son said this movie was awesome. He thought it was cool dogs training to go and going to outer space. My children and I enjoyed watching the fun adventure. The movie was entertaining and the dogs were fun. This is the type of movie you want to watch with your entire family. This is one of those movies you keep and watch all over again.
Balka and Strekla meet when Strelka's rocket-riding circus act goes awry and she ends up launching out of the circus and into Belka's neighgborhood. Belka and Strelka, along with Belka's rat friend Venya get caught by a man and put aboard a train bound for the Soviet space training program. The rest of the film follows Belka and Strelka into space and back to earth.
Our family recommends you and your family try out this movie through your local Redbox or buy it at Target, Walmart or on Amazon.com.
We were sent these movies from Phase4films to review, but the opinions are my family and mine.
