    I really enjoyed this movie, older audiences may not enjoy but younger audiences will be sucked in immediately by it's humor and intentionally goofy story.

    There was a couple of funny moments but the end was VERY cheesy.

    A weak, unfunny, not very heroic movie that you see and only very young children are set to enjoy. The film also suffers because it tries to hard to be heartwarming and warm when it becomes the opposite. I give this film 14%.

    Una pelicula aburrida de inicio a fin, sin una trama buena y se desenvolvia en lo minmo de siempre. Sinceramente no mostro nada nuevo y fue una tortura verla.

    Not as awful as its premise may suggest it is, it has its moments of adventure and humor, enough to fulfill the attention spans of children, even if it feels too ridiculous at times.

    Two is generous, one is fair, and zero is understandable. Its plot and writing is macabre, and Peter Dinklage's acting is wasted on this pathetic and clichéd villain. The entire film is a cliché, and one that fails to even make fun of the superhero genre. Making animals heros is already boring, and in a way disturbing to me

    Underdog is an easily forgettable, throwaway flick strictly for children. The movie is sloppy, derivative, and cheesy, and never thrills us or gives us any compensation for its bad script.

    Underdog is underwhelming.
    This had all the makings to be a cute family film, but ends up just being puke worthy. There are no laughs, there is no story, and there is no message. A mindless, brainless, overly goof movie that a five year old goof of written.

    If you're expecting anything resembling the beloved cartoon, you'll enjoy the title sequence and nothing else. If, however, you set your expectations just low enough, or are an easily satisfied 8-year-old, you might have a bit of fun.
  2. The movie isn't nearly as bad as you would expect when the studio holds its only press screening the night before a national opening.

    Falls somewhere between stale retread and half-hearted parody of superhero-movie formulas.
