I really enjoyed Ace Of Hearts. It is based on a true story of a K9 police dog. Being retired from law enforcement I had a friend who was our K9 handler. His dog's name was King (reminded me of Ace)but King did not have a happy ending. He was shot to death in the line of duty. My friend cried like a baby so I know how attached a K9 officer gets to his "partner."
This is a movie the whole family can watch together and cry and laugh together also. FIVE stars in my book!
I watched 20 minutes of this and had to shut it off. First don't watch this if you are an animal lover and do not show to young children. I am glad I watched this before my daughter she would have nightmares. First a prisoner escapes jail and is tracked by the dog Ace. The dog is then accused of injuring the prisoner and without any investigation is sent to be put to sleep. The police officer Dean Cain doesn't even argue with anyone and lets the dog go to be put to sleep. From the beginning you can tell how much he loves this dog. They show everything, getting the dog ready and taking it away. I know this is a true story so I know the dog wasn't going to be put to sleep but it was very unnerving watching this happen. The dog does escape but I turned it off. I am very disappointed. The preview sounds better than it started off. I won't finish watching it and I'm trying to get rid of it. Not for animal lovers or young children.
I liked the strong and loyal relationship between the dog and his trainer. Yet the trainer was devoting so much time to the dog that his daughter was feeling unloved. This is a good family film for older children. The bad guy is a little too violent, destructive, and even frightening for small children.
The story was not as well written and acted out as "Second Hand Lions", but it was entertaining. The kids enjoyed seeing the dogs work. I am glad that I purchased this DVD, my family will continue to enjoy it occasionally.
This movie was a touching movie about a police dog, his partner and his partner's family. A wonderful movie for anyone who loves animals. The movie also exhibits some important family values. This movie was based on a true story.
Excellent Family Movie, every dog lover will love, and criminal will not. Dean Cain once again strikes gold, and his cast mates are just perfect together.
