When the Doberman chases Benji just after Stelios falls over coming around the corner the music is different on the recent DVD release compared to a British television showing in the mid 90's. The music that was used on the TV version is not to be found on the CD ost, only the replaced music that is on the DVD version. See more »
This movie uses the same plot devices and cinematography as the first one, but it has a lot of long, pointless sequences that make it drag on. The first one had a lot of action/reaction on the part of the dog, in part because the dog was more aware of what was going on. In this one, Benji is part of an intricate plot that not even the audience understands until the end. Obviously Benji acts in ways natural to a dog in a strange place, but he doesn't get much chance for heroics until the very end. All in all, I still like this film, but I just don't like it as much as the original.
