Verdict on Muzzle
Muzzle is an action thriller following a police officer searching for answers about his K9 partner’s death. However, his hot-headed attitude can cause problems, but his connection to a new dog gives him motivation to continue searching.
This is a movie that shows a connection between humans and dogs that will drive people to achieve anything. Nothing can get in the way when the right connection is made. However, aside from the man and his dog storyline, we don’t get much into the deeper side of things. We don’t seem to get to the bottom of Jake’s problems. Along with the police not doing enough to protect Jake after what happened. However, the man and his dog side of everything keeps us wanting to see more.
Where to Watch: Muzzle streaming on Prime Video on November 14th.
Final Thoughts –Muzzle plays into the one man and his dog story perfectly.
