Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero

Helena Bonham Carter and Gérard Depardieu lend their voices to this CGI family adventure about the real-life Boston Terrier who became a World War One hero.

With WWI looming, Robert Conroy (Logan Lerman, The Perks of Being a Wallflower), a young army private, adopts a stray, stump-tailed terrier. The two quickly find themselves in the trenches of France and on the path to history, with French soldier Gaston Baptiste (Depardieu) accompanying them along their epic journey, through harsh conditions and incredible acts of courage.

[T]he film is sufficiently intelligent and entertaining to engage most grown-ups and, no kidding, fascinate history buffs.

Delivered by rudimentary computer animation... Still, the central conceit is compelling.

The director, Richard Lanni, whose biography also cites work as a battlefield tour guide, manages a fair amount of wit, particularly with a postcard montage of Stubby's first trip to Paris.

Hats off to the chutzpah of the filmmakers behind this thoughtful if somewhat plodding effort, which will appeal largely to young (or young-at-heart) dog lovers cum budding war historians - not exactly a massive demographic.

The well-assembled period piece could...appeal to children old enough to grasp its themes, while serving as a valuable educational tool to teach them about a war that ended nearly a century ago.
