Caped canine crusaders to the rescue in this hugely entertaining animated spin on DC’s superhero franchise.
Krypto the Super-Dog and Superman are inseparable best friends, sharing the same superpowers and fighting crime in Metropolis side by side. When Superman and the rest of the Justice League are kidnapped by Lex Luthor and the evil guinea pig Lulu, Krypto must convince a rag-tag shelter pack; Ace the hound, PB the potbellied pig, Merton the turtle and Chip the squirrel to master their own newfound powers and help him rescue the Super Heroes.
Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart head up an impressive voice cast as Krypto and Ace, pairing up here for the fifth time and cementing themselves as Hollywood’s premier double act. Diego Luna, Kate McKinnon and Keanu Reeves also lend their voices, Reeves in particular shining as this universe’s Dark Knight.
Jared Stern, a writer on the LEGO Batman movie, takes the reins here, bringing with him some of the magic that made his previous work so successful. A riot from start to finish that anyone with a fondness for animals, super or not, will find impossible ignore.
