unusual, engaging and educational .

Stubby: An American Hero is hands-down the most fun, inspirational, exciting animated feature film I've ever seen.

There were few close call moments and that lack of suspense made it difficult to remain on the edge of my seat.

That all makes this an unusual, but valuable and entertaining animated movie which is likely to appeal to kids, dog lovers and history buffs of all ages.

I'm one that like films that are based on actual events and historical moments, but I feel sometimes they are played to be cute and heartwarming and I can often get bored with those movies.

Right from the animation to the story line, this movie is pleasant and worth watching with kids.

When Robert is assigned to join a burly French soldier named Gaston Baptiste (Oscar nominee Gérard Depardieu) on his scouting missions, Stubby comes along, which is just the beginning of the pooch's exciting, dangerous and heroic wartime adventures.

So refreshing to see and indie animation studio arriving on the seen with such a fresh approach - entertaining, informative and endearing, loved this film from start to finish the vintage style animation created an authentic and atmospheric backdrop to what has to be one of the greatest uncovered historical stories for years.

It really is a shame because the story in the film is quite a fascinating.

I took my two girls to see this movie and wow - it was educational, entertaining and just down right awesome.

The blocky movements and lack of intense action-animation scenes are what take away from some of the scenes for me, which could have been remedied.

Stubby: An American Hero" is an engaging and educational animated adventure.

It's uneventful and barely enough action to keep a person entertained let alone children.

The story is thrilling, certainly.
