      Best movie Richard Gere has done in awhile!

      I like Richard Gere as the roles he plays are dramatic and usually the movie is a decent film. Although time does not permit me to follow Richard Gere films closely it just so happened this popped out on a web site I visit to see what is coming out. I placed an order for it on a movie subscription site and there is still as of today a very long wait for this movie..so I purchased it. I enjoyed the loyalty and devotion that Akita had toward it's master and the movie showed he got it as a pup which is when you really need to start training this dog which is used for hunting in Japan. They are loyal and are tolerant of other family members as I can attest to when I visited my Uncles farm in Japan his dog is an Akita and he was extremely nervous when I went to play with the dog as it can nip unknowns. Compared to the Japanese version the gist of the story is the same and for most Americans and for most people who love dogs this is a must see, waiting for Marley and Me 2. Sorry if went off base but been getting review this movie couple times on my e-mail so final conclusion: I liked this movie.

      I saw this movie on television the first time. I had never heard of it. It was so good that I had to track it down. I bought 3 as Christmas presents. Those 3 have gotten shared with others who have also loved the movie. It's a must see for any dog owner. Anyone that has a man's best friend. FANTASTIC!! I put a good rating for the extras because I haven't gotten to see them yet. One of the discs (my own copy) was damaged so I had to get a refund for it. Haven't replaced it yet.

      When I heard about this movie I just didn't feel much interest in seeing it. Man was I way off in that instinct... Discovering it one night on a streaming service, I watched it with my son and it's now one of HIS favorite movies ever. Mine too. A somewhat simple movie that has a gigantic heart inside it and an emotional life lesson teaching ending...

      This movie is an absolute must for your DVD collection! The whole cast is amazing, especially the dogs who portray Hachi. I cried non-stop towards the end, and you'll finally realize the true meaning of LOYALTY and "man's best friend." It's based on the true story of the real Hachiko, but based in modern day America; makes you wonder how a dog can be so dedicated and loyal. LOVE IT!

      It shows with tenderness the special bond that a dog developed to its master. It talks about loyalty for the ones we love (from the dog´s side). Great scenery and acting. I think Richard Gere and the dog were amazing! If you like dogs, this movie is a must. I just warn you that some tears might come out of your eyes.... Enjoy the movie!!

      I recommend the story of "Hachi"to everyone. The story of a dog and its owner. How the dog never left. Always looking and waiting to the return of his owner. A pet that is very loyal. A master that never left his dog until the unfortunate day when he had no control of his future. How the people in the town always made sure that Hachi had food and a warm place to stay.

      The translation of this movie was diffferent from the Japanese story , but had the same concept. The Akita dogs that portrayed Hachiko were amazing and well trained. The acting dog that played Hachiko was as loyal and realistic like the true Hachiko. The dog stole the show from the human thespians.

      It Is one of the must see movie. It will remind you about loyalty whether it be with other individuals or even your animal friends. It is a great story to watch by the whole family. Surely, it will touch your heart and make you realize the importance of everyone that crosses your lives.
