My Thoughts:

I saved this film to watch on Memorial Day with my family since they were all eager to see it too, To say we all enjoyed it and were emotionally invested is a bit of an understatement. We took turns exclaiming shock, encouragement during tense moments, sadness and lastly celebrating together at the outcome of this superb film.

The lush jungle scenes pull you in and tell so much of the story, as does the scene stealer, Arthur. He is such a smart and caring dog! He turns out to be the real MVP! Even if you aren’t a dog person, like the team leader Michael, I think you’ll enjoy this feel good adventure film as much as all of us did. 

Arthur The King will the real MVP

The Takeaway:

Whether you’re a dog lover, an avid cyclist, or perhaps just a fan of this films actors ( Simi Liu is on top of his acting game right now!), I think you’ll find this film entertaining. Its not a long movie, so kids won’t get bored. There is a few scenes that are tense and have some strong language so you’ll want to watch this film with them.
