Un très bon film familial, de l'humour, de la tendresse et un peu de Minus et Cortex dans ce petit chef d'oeuvre... rien de vraiment à rajouter, ce film m'a comblé et a vraiment ravi mon petit bonhomme, que demander de plus ?

En chacun d'entre nous sommeil un héros, certain se réveilleront un jour, d'autre que de temps à autre et la plupart sommeilleront par crainte de ce que les autres pourraient penser de nous... mais ce qui compte je crois c'est ce que nous, nous pensons de nous même n'est ce pas ?

Certes ceux qui n'aime pas les films familiaux, les super héros et non pas un once de coeur d'enfant risque de ne pas aimer ce film comme bien des critiques... mais bon chacun ces goût, moi pour ma part je n'aime pas certain style de film et je ne les regarde pas tout simplement... si vous avez encore une âme que l'on peut émerveiller grâce à un peu de magie et de charme ce film est sans l'ombre d'un doute à voir !

HASH(0x9fdbebac) out of 5 stars Furry Family Fun Nov. 22 2007
By Ken Fontenot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
When I first heard that Disney was going to be putting out a live action version of "Underdog," I cringed at the thought. How could one make a live action film based on a cartoon who's key character was A) a dog, B) interacted freely with humans and other animals and C) was definitely a product of its times? Sure, the "Scooby-Doo" films have been out for awhile, but Scooby (and his cousins) were the only animals that interacted with anyone and their update was a fair success. Although Disney's answer wasn't 100% perfect, it was definitely a good response.

What the writers did was simplify the original tale somewhat. Instead of having Underdog interact with humans by being a shoeshine boy, he became an out-of-luck former police dog who's picked up by the caring-but-tense family of James Belushi and Alex Neuberger. They name him "Shoeshine." They also made the rest of the animals, namely Polly and Riff-Raff, only interact with Underdog and not the humans. Lastly, they firmly planted this film in 2007 by updating the lingo, the music, and the science that created Underdog.

Simon Barsinister (Peter Dinklage) and Cad (Patrick Warburton) are along for the ride and just like in the old TV show, they are Underdog's primary adversaries. Jason Lee provides the voice of the super pup, and gives him a refreshing update that I'm sure will tick off fans of the original cartoon.

The story, as mentioned earlier, is based around a not-so-hot police dog who's literally laughed off of the force by his comrades. He's picked up by Barsinister and Cad and becomes Underdog through a lab accident. He escapes from Barsinister and is picked up by another has-been cop, James Belushi. He's taken in by Belushi and his son and begins to form a strong bond with the boy. The rest of the story centers around Barsinister trying to capture Underdog to use his powers to take over the city and, eventually, the world. Along the way Shoeshine/Underdog falls for Polly, his new family gets closer, and he struggles with a catchphrase.

Sure, the story is simplistic and entirely unbelievable, but this is still a very good film to take your children to. I don't recall any harsh language but there is a little bit of violence and some puppy peril. At one point a particular pup gets into a deadly situation that might scare very young children. Just know that all turns out well in the end and I promise that your kids will be smiling before the movie is over.

This isn't a great film, but it is a very good family flick. The cast do an excellent job with what they have to work with and the special effects are of a similar (but slightly better) grade as those in other recent live-action flicks that involve CGI characters. I'm especially fond of Underdog's take-offs when he heads to the air.

Fans of the original series will probably cry foul over what has happened to their beloved Underdog. They do have a legitimate gripe but this film wasn't made to recall a ton of memories. It was made to draw in a modern crowd of youngsters and their families (some of which may not have even heard of the original show). The bottomline is this: It's a good family show that is enjoyable for both kids and their parents. Haggle over the changes if you must, but in the end, Disney has a winner with "Underdog."

HASH(0x9fdbec00) out of 5 stars The First Canine Rapper, Underdog, LIVE-ACTION! April 10 2008
By Benjamin J Burgraff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Back in the sixties, that long-ago age,
An animated super-mutt was truly the rage!
Voiced by Wally Cox, the lovable geek,
The dog always rhymed, whenever he'd speak.

Underdog was the Mighty Mouse of his time,
Saving the city and always in rhyme!
And while some may feel a 'live' update is trivial,
I find this new movie entirely convivial!

Frederik Du Chau directs with a wink,
And the result isn't as silly as many might think!
Jason Lee's voice, while not as nerdy as Cox's,
Is warm and beagle-friendly, whenever he talks!

The animals, not humans, are the stars of this flick,
Although Peter Dinklage's Barsinister is a real kick!
At 4'5", he's teamed with 6'3" Patrick Warburton,
And they steal every scene until the final curtain!

I loved the references to "Superman, the Movie",
And as a sixties kid, I found everything groovy!
Of course, since it's Disney, it carries his stamp,
With a romantic send-up of "Lady and the Tramp".

So Mom and Dad, make your little ones happy,
Buy this doggy gem, and make it snappy!
It's family-friendly, so there's no need to fear,
They'll thank you and exclaim, "Underdog is HERE!"

HASH(0x9effb054) out of 5 stars wonderful Nov. 8 2007
By Dearest Be - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
My 6 year-old loved this movie, and frankly, so did I. It is a straight forward, good-clean-fun movie. When I walk through the local movie rental chain, I am disappointed at the gore and darkness that people consider entertainment. If you want something lighthearted and enjoyable for the whole family, you can't go wrong with this one.

HASH(0x9effb414) out of 5 stars A Cartoon Hero Become Real Dec 19 2007
By Mark Baker - Carstairs Considers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Underdog is the story of your average police beagle. He's supposed to be trained to sniff out bombs, but he's, well, bombed out at that job. Dejected after his most recent failure (hams and bombs smell alike, right?), he sets out alone on the streets.

He's quickly picked up by Cad (Patrick Warburton) and taken to the lab of the mad Dr. Barsinister (Peter Dinklage). When the bad doc tries to inject him with something, he starts running around the lab, accidentally knocking over a shelf full of bottles. From these comes his super powers of speech, speed, strength, flying, you name it.

Underdog manages to get himself adopted by a recently widowed father (Jim Belushi) with a bitter son (Alex Neuberger). But Dr. Barsinister is continuing his evil scheme. Will he find Underdog? Can a small dog stop the mad scientist?

Never having watched the old cartoon show, I can't compare this film to its source material. I might have missed a few jokes as a result. But I found this to be only an average film. The story is predictable, but it was entertaining enough to hold my interest. There were some great one-liners, but too much bathroom humor for my tastes. I have a feeling the target audience of kids will enjoy it more then I did.

Not surprisingly, the special effects were great. The acting was fine, but nothing outstanding. The exception to that was Patrick Warburton and Peter Dinklage. They play the villains slightly over the top, and the result was perfect. They were more funny then scary, although a couple scenes in the lab might frighten young children.

This is a movie aimed at kids that is best left to them. They'll enjoy it, but adults will want to find something else to entertain them.

HASH(0x9effb4f8) out of 5 stars UNDERDOG movie worth barking about! Four Paws Up! Dec 1 2007
By ZIPPER - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Let me start off by saying that Underdog the movie is a grrrrrrrrrrreat movie that will leave your stomach hurting from all the laughing. I just went and watched this movie on opening night and I have to say this movie is worth 4 paws and one tail up! It's a grrrrreat film that will leave you laughing the whole way through the film. Kids are going to flip out over Underdog, I'm telling ya! Everyone in the theater seemed to love this movie as well with all the laughter that was heard during the film. One thing this film does remind us is that dogs say the darndest things. Underdog (voiced by Jason Lee of "My Name is Earl") has a nack of making you burst into laughter from the goofy quotes and funny antics this character displays.

I say to the people giving negative feedback about this movie, they are just barking up the wrong tree. Most of which probably did not even watch the movie and just follow the popular false beliefs on how movies are made. I have a strong feeling that people will be barking all about this movie and it will be very successful in Theater viewings and DVD sales. Underdog is most certainly "Top Dog" when it comes to blockbuster movies for the month of August!
Purchase this movie today and thank me later.

What's the story:
The world needs a hero and man needs a best friend. They get them both when a scientific experiment goes wrong, leaving an ordinary beagle (oddly named Shoeshine Boy) with extraordinary abilities. What kind of abilities? He can fly! He can speak contemporary American English! He doesn't seem to mind wearing a sweater and cape! And, he's curiously monogamous! That's right; he's after the (literally) fetching Polly Purebread. So when she and all of Capitol City are under threat of destruction by a sinister plot, only a certain anthropomorphic canine can save the day! After all, who doesn't like rooting for an underdog?

Three Good Reasons

* You loved the cartoon as a kid. You can't wait to see if Disney did it justice or ruined it.
* Jason Lee's voice work as Syndrome in The Incredibles was convincingly creepy. Now that he's playing the good guy, kids won't be quite as scared of him.
* Indie-film favorite Peter Dinklage gets nasty as Simon Barsinsinter, with sitcom stalwart Patrick Warburton as his lug of a henchman.

Bet You Didn't Know
This is the first screenplay credit for two of the movie's writers, but it's old hat for score composer Randy Edelman. He's won 10 BMI Film Music Awards, including 2003's Career Achievement Award.
