The sequel to the much loved Aussie legendary movie Red Dog is showing in cinemas across Australia.

I was lucky enough to catch Red Dog True Blue with some friends at the outdoor Community cinemas at Burswood Parklands.

The story switches between past and present - narrated by Mike as a grown man, recounting his time spent with his grandfather as a young boy.
