Storyline

Man’s Best Friend  A genetically mutated dog is stolen from the lab of mad scientist Dr. Jarret by news reporter/animal rights advocate Lori Tanner, who conceals it from the police in her home. The dog, Max, endowed with intelligence and other special abilities, is at first lovable, but also proves to be a ferocious, unstoppable killer. He’ll bite the hand that feeds him…And then he’ll eat the rest.

Good “B” movie about a girl who befriends a research dog.

Man’s Best Friend   This is one of those movies that can entertain you as long as you don’t get too critical. The basic premise of the story line is a good one but as with many low budget Sci-Fi films there are flaws in the telling.

The biggest flaw is in the title itself. Being as this dog befriends Ally Sheedy’s character and basically snarls at all the men it come across the film probably should have been called “Woman’s Best Friend” or better yet “M.A.X.”.

Other than the title though the movie is basically a good film and you have to get pretty picky to find any real problems with it. It’s not a great movie but it has some good scares, moments of comic relief, and some cool special effects.

Not enough Henriksen is the biggest problem ……………….

 This mutated dog sci-fi/ horror / black comedy requires complete suspension of disbelief, and if you can live with that premise, you will find “Man’s Best Friend” entertaining. Although Lance Henriksen receives second billing, his screen time is somewhat disappointing. The sci-fi element is never explored, giving way to “Cudjo”-like maulings and some moments of “dark comedy”. There is a little too much cutesy stuff involving the genetically engineered dog, but overall other than the lack of Henriksen, this is a totally acceptable time waster. The dog is really the star, with the actors assuming a secondary role.
