Over the years fans of the star have seen her venture into some dangerous territory with Ninja Turtles, Transformers, and Jonah Hex.
But Think Like a Dog shows Fox a bit more stripped back, allowing her to just act – and it is good.
Fox is without a doubt the standout of the film, and it would be good to see her continue on this trend of taking more thoughtful roles in the films to come.
Think Like a Dog is an enjoyable journey into a quick fantasy where imagination is the only thing stopping the kids from running the world in this story. Oliver is a strong lead who carries the film well – even when sharing scenes with just a dog. But Megan Fox is the absolute star of the show, as she whips out her perhaps scarcely-utilised acting chops in some tender moments which are sure to keep viewers of all ages gripped. While the story itself is a little unusual, it is fun. However it does feel a little bloated towards the second half of the film. The introduction of Xiao (Minghao Hou) seems utterly pointless, and some of the humour surrounding his dialogue, and his story, are sometimes entirely wrote. Despite this, families looking for a quick 90-minute thrill for all ages need look no further.
Think Like a Dog is available on Digital Download now and DVD July 20.
