Super Stubby or Stubbed Out?
Go see this film!
When you see a “Movies for Juniors” film called “Sgt Stubby” about a dog in the war, you expect everything to be pretty poor.
This film was far from it. It just worked really well.
So Sgt Stubby is the “inspired by true life” story of a dog who befriends an American soldier and ends up in the World War 1 trenches as part of the Yankee Division alongside his Human American soldiers and their French allies.
Firstly, this is a PG film…is the content child-friendly? To an extent yes…there is a lot of brutal war scenes, with lots of gunfire and explosions etc. But the film handles any Soldier injuries really well, there’s zero blood or anything like that and we don’t see the true brutality of war, whilst it sticks to the feeling of it.
That’s one of the things I really enjoyed about this…it handles war well, whilst not being overcome by the horrors of it.
There’s some sadness in there and some high points.
It’s very much a film that can be enjoyed by both kids and adults alike. I have seen a fair few War films…and this is actually one of the best!
Stick around for the end credits to see the real Stubby!
