"The upsetting experimentation on lab animals, including the tests on setter Snitter (voice of John Hurt) who had dreams/memories of his days as a house pet, and the repeated near-drowning of black labrador Rowf (voice of Christopher Benjamin) to see how long he could dog-paddle before he gave up; also the heart-rending scene of a dead puppy being scraped out of its cell; and the ending in which the two dogs swam out to sea - choosing to be dead and free rather than captured: (Snitter: "I can't s"

"'The Plague Dogs', from the makers of the darkly brilliant 'Watership Down' and based on another Richard Adams book, is an unbelievably depressing animated film squarely aimed at adults with little concession to children. And it's all the better for it. While it may not be as regularly rewatchable as 'Watership Down', 'The Plague Dogs' has much to say about man's capacity for animal cruelty and it doesn't fudge the message with any cutesy or comic asides.

"Sure it, has two really adorably cute dogs, in the film, and it is an animated movie, but that's where it stops right there. If you do make it, to the end of the film, then be prepared for the most downbeat film ending of all time, that leaves no illusion of whether or not our canine heroes, make it to their final destination.
