Synopsis

Twenty years in the future, Japan has an abundance of dogs. So many that they can't contain them all. The politicians decide to exile the canines to an island where trash is dumped. Rex, King, Duke, Boss and Chief form a band of alpha dogs who vow to find better food than what's left in the garbage.

When a 12-year-old boy crashes his self-made airplane on the island to look for his lost dog Spot, the alpha dogs and the other dogs on the island team up to help him.

  • 5 stars "A wonderfully animated film that’s a sure hit with dog lovers. Isle of Dogs is a one of the best examples of stop motion cinematography and well deserves the kudos it has received for its style, story, and direction. Those who have criticisms of this film should get over the petty political correctness that they have used to analyze what is just a fun film with an endearing story."
  • 5 stars "I loved this boy found his beloved pet. No easier movie for little ones. This movie is for adults and teenagers. People are used to watch those boring Disney movies and think that all anime’s movies are for little ones. All in pink and cute. This movie was well done. Excellent animation."
  • 5 stars "I love Japanes stories because they are more serious showing things. Yes dogs were having a bad life. No the movies fault if people don’t read the rate ages. I thin this movie was hard but sweet at same time. Justice finally helped the dogs."
