Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this TV movie has a few scenes of actual, people-on-people violence, including the beginning, when Karate Dog's master is killed by masked assassins, and one scene in which Karate Dog is wrestled away to the pound by a gratuitous animal control officer. When Karate Dog is fighting, the scenes look more like a video game than anything else and are less frightening -- but no less violent. There's also mild sexual innuendo, mostly among the dogs, of a sort that might be difficult to explain to young kids.

The bad guy is taking a "formula" that makes him younger, stronger, faster ... and crazier.
