Sandy Tung directs this sequel to the family film Shiloh, based on Phyllis Reynolds Naylor’s series of books. Shiloh the beagle returns, now with his new family, Marty Preston (Zachary Browne) and his dad (Michael Moriarty). When Shiloh’s cruel former owner (Scott Wilson) crashes his truck on the Preston farm, Marty and Shiloh decide to befriend him. Rod Steiger and Ann Dowd also star.
Capsule Review: Nice and good natured, Shiloh 2 sometimes feels more like an Afterschool Special than a theatrical movie. But, in a relaxed and down-homey sort of way, the movie is enjoyable, and goes out of its way to teach moral lessons as well.
