The 1982 British-American animated adventure movie The Plague Dogs that was based on the book The Plague Dogs by Richard Adams.
What is it about?
This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this animated movie:
Animated adaptation of Richard Adams’ novel about two dogs that are hunted down after they escape from an animal-research center.
This movie made me tear up or cry a bit at the end when I watched it alone a couple of years ago on my computer.
I learned about this movie thanks to a YouTube video called ANIMATED VIOLENCE – Double Toasted Highlight by the YouTube channel Double Toasted.
This animated movie is possibly not exactly for children (though children could still watch it), it had some more serious themes and moments to my surprise, and it was more realistic and thoughtful than you would think especially for an animated movie.
This was a pretty good movie that sticks with you at the end with its emotional and philosophical ending.
This movie showed some of the things that humans are capable of and really humanized the non-human characters.
We need more animated movies et cetera like this that can teach life lessons and better prepare people for the real world.
One movie that I can compare it to is another good classic animated movie called Watership Down.
