What a Powerful Tale
By 
As a grown man not prone to crying, by the end of this film I was a blubbering mess, and I've probably not shed a tear in more than ten years. Anyone who loves dogs, I imagine, will be in the same state after witnessing the amazing loyalty displayed by one selfless canine.

I'd actually heard the story many times. A loyal dog returns to train station to meet his master even after he dies. But the film really brings the point home following the entire life span of the dog. But what I feel makes this film stand out is how it shows the perspective of the dog, a great reminder that "Hachi" is the protagonist in the film and giving insight into the emotions he felt. Additionally, the dog was portrayed as a dog, not a human character in a dog suit capable of impossible feats and acts, which for me, made the story so much more enjoyable and made the dog so much more believable.

I would rate this as probably the best dog movie ever to come out of Hollywood. If you've made it so far as to read

One of the best
By 
This is a very important movie about the true meaning of life: benevolence, connection, love, loyalty, hope. This is the second time I've watched "Hachi," and I still cried through at least half of the movie. It is not just a kids' show as some have suggested.

I'm actually surprised that people have wanted to buy or adopt Akitas specifically after watching this. It never occurred to me to focus on that breed. It does, however, make me want to adopt a dog. There are so many other breeds, and even mongrels, who are just as sweet and loyal. Tons of rescued animals need homes. I've even had a cat that was about as Hachi-like as a cat could be. Please help an animal--any animal.
