A DOG’S JOURNEY
- Direction: Gail Mancuso
- Actors: Kathryn Prescott, Josh Gad (voice)
- Rating: 2 / 5
Not to be confused with A Dog’s Way Home, which was released here earlier this month, this similar-sounding emotionally manipulative canine-centered adventure is actually a sequel to the 2017 tearjerker, A Dog’s Purpose. Interestingly, all three films are derived from novels by W Bruce Cameron.
Expanding upon the original’s theme of canine reincarnation, incoming director Gail Mancuso ensures that the ‘boss dog’ protagonist, a golden retriever named Bailey, fulfils his promise to protect his owner’s granddaughter throughout her life.
