Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"... I felt as if I were being preached to throughout this film."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"You won't find the pragmatic intelligence of Naylor's original stories here, but even cynics may be touched by the film's remarkably wholesome lessons about friendship, family and forgiveness."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"Cute but uneven. Best for dog lovers."
‑ Heather Boerner, Common Sense Media
"If you are new to the series, I would suggest your starting with the original Shiloh, so far, the best in show."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Offers exactly what you've come to expect from the series: Bland but wholly innocuous family entertainment featuring a cute kid and an even cuter dog."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Boring as porridge."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"It's a family film that deals with real problems and teaches real values, and yet is exciting and entertaining."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Wilson really is the only reason an adult or any child other than the very youngest moviegoer could watch this well-meaning, easygoing family drama."
‑ Frank Lovece, Film Journal International
"This is strictly a movie for those who think family values trump production values"
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, Los Angeles CityBeat
"Wilson ... makes this film, via grit of detail, a bit more than a Hallmark Special Retro Disney Walton sermon in values."
‑ David Elliott, San Diego Union-Tribune
"An OK kids movie passing through on the way to video."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Plain and simple but never simple-minded."
‑ Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter
"If you've followed the previous Shiloh films, then you'll be satisfied, if not overjoyed, by this final chapter."
‑ David Cornelius,
"An insipid tearjerker about a beagle with a middle-school daddy."
‑ Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve
"If Sandy Tung's film had flavor, it might taste like a week-old bagel."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
