Reviews
  • TheGuardian.com: From its sweetly self-referential start, the Red Dog prequel offers a very rewarding journey – with plenty of dem feels.
  • Maketheswitch.com.au: 'Red Dog: True Blue' is one of the best children's films I've seen in a long time. I've said it before and I'll say it again, but children's movies always seem to pack more of an emotional punch than adult movies these days. I know from the sound of the sobbing in the cinema I was in that I wasn't the only one with tears in my eyes at the end. It's one for the whole family to enjoy, and an important one to support.
  • Urbancinefile.com.au: With Bryan Brown and the stunning Pilbara region as its greatest assets, True Blue is a sweet film.
  • Darrens-world-of-entertainment.blogspot.nl: Red Dog True Blue's warmth and fuzziness may prove to be the ideal antidote for those seeking a feelgood flick to start 2017 off with.
  • Residententertainment.com: a really great story and also has a lot of heart. a lovely family film that's a good choice to take young kids to see. 8.5!
  • Filmblerg.com: The scenery is magnificent and importantly Miller's boundless enthusiasm and great chemistry with the dog keep things light.
  • Heavymag.com.au: A smooth, enjoyable ride for the whole family.
  • Heyuguys.com: But it's what the red dog represents that is moving, for he's a means of exploring Mick's youth, with touching finale that is steeped in the idea that the memories the protagonist has will never go away, moments he'll always cherish, albeit with a friend he no longer has. It's hard not to get emotionally stirred, even if you are a cat person.
  • Previewfilms.com.au: Wholesome family viewing this respectable continuing chapter in the franchise is funny, poignant, has a great soundtrack containing great Aussie songs, but most importantly has heart and soul.
  • Sbs.com.au: A simple coming-of-age story that benefits from a great cast and moments of inspired craziness.
  • Supermarcey.com: A surprisingly strong and crowd pleasing prequel that was definitely better than it had any right to be. It did still capture all the humour, adventure, heart and Aussie spirit that made RED DOG such a joy to watch.
  • TheReelWord.net: This delightful prequel continues the legacy sincerely with an emphasis on modesty and greater attention to character development.

A team of special forces soldiers approach the designer of a high-tech military compound to investigate the disappearance of another team guarding the facility. The compound, known professionally as a Temple, is an artificial intelligence powered facility designed for interrogating high level prisoners. Upon entering the Temple, the soldiers quickly find the earlier team horrifically slaughtered but no evidence as to who is responsible.

Almost immediately, the crew begins to experience strange and horrific supernatural phenomena as they attempt to uncover who killed the previous team. Soon enough, they find a lone survivor, a dangerous terrorist who may hold the key to who killed the soldiers. But as the story goes on, we'll learn that there's more to it than we've been told and a dark secret the soldiers share may hold the key to surviving The Temple.
