Dante and his girlfriend run foul of the Spanish border patrol and are captured. While his girlfriend is sexually assaulted by an official and goes missing, Dante himself escapes from an immigration camp and goes on the run. Pursued by a bounty hunter and a relentlessly determined and viscous cyber-enhanced rottweiler dog, Dante attempts to discover what happened to his partner, whilst avoiding the authorities...

After a recent upturn in the quality of film releases, with such examples as Breathing Room and The Chair, DNC Entertainment let themselves down big-time with this dogged bore-athon.

Rottweiler is one of those movies when you feel you've just wasted around ninety minutes of your life. A man gets captured, escapes, gets followed by a dog (as you do), shoots the dog, and the dog returns as Terminator K-9000 (yes, I made the model number up). That's it basically. It rather makes you crave for some hair-of-the-dog.

Director Brian Yuzna (Re-Animator) really should have let sleeping dogs lie. The plot has no bark and very little bite. I realise that every dog has it's day, but even a shaggy-dog story often has an end worth waiting for, whereas the big revelation at the conclusion of this film has little effect. By this time you just don't care.

"A rollercoaster of fear" says the blurb. I think not. A poor film, but a marvellous opportunity for dog puns.
