After the release of "The Great Wall," another American-Chinese co-production "Rock Dog" has reached the screens all around the United States on February 24, 2017. Ash Brannon, who has previously worked as a co-director in "Toy Story" has directed this movie.

This animated film is based on Zheng Jun’s graphic novel “Tibetan Rock Dog," and through this outing, the filmmaker tries to blend Tibetan culture with contemporary Brit-rock, and he has partially succeeded in this effort. Eminent personalities in World Cinema including Luke Wilson, Eddie Izzard, J.

K. Simmons, Lewis Black, Kenan Thompson, and Sam Elliott have given voices for this movie.

Box-office prediction

The film has been released in more than 1900 screens in the United States and Canada. As critics and audiences are panning the film, "Rock Dog" is expected to gross around $3 million by the end of this opening week. Stay tuned for more updates on the box-office earnings.

A funny tale set in the backdrop of a snow mountain

The initial portion of the film is set in the backdrop of a snow mountain where Bodi, a young mastiff along with his dad are assigned a task to protect a herd of sheep from wolves. These moments in the film are narrated in the folksiest manner by the director, and the usage of traditional Chinese arts and music is capable of giving a fresh feel to the viewers.

One day, Bodi discovers a rock music on a radio dropped from an airplane, and he soon gets obsessed with the music of Angus Scattergood. Soon, Bodi travels to the city to pursue a career in music.

A genuine attempt failed miserably

It is undoubtedly a great idea to bring about the plots of "Zootopia", "Sing" and "Kung Fu Panda" under one roof, but while blending these scenarios, this movie has lost its originality.

And finally, it has turned out to be a pathetic watch which will not make the audiences engaged, except for the initial fifteen minutes of the movie.

Two more Hollywood films "Collide" and Get Out" were released today. Check out the reviews on Blasting News here.
