ODDBALL (Theatrical Release Australian 2015)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

Oddball serves as good family entertainment. The acting is good. There’s a small twist at the conclusion of the story that’s not expected and perhaps a little awkward, but it still works well enough to entertain. Great work for Director Stuart McDonald.

Storyline 

A dog is trained to protect penguins from predatory attacks.

Yes. The movie deserves its watch and serves as a nice introduction to Australian veteran actor, Shane Jacobson, for those not familiar with his work.
