It’s the movie event of the year. The Pup of Steel faces off against the Dark Hound. That’s right, “Batdog v. Superdog: Dawn of Biscuits” is finally here, and it’s everything we could ever hope for.


Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund stars as Superdog, the alien hero, while his twin brother Oakley moonlights as his masked nemesis, Batdog. In this colossal battle of the beasts, both pooches find themselves on opposite ends of an epic battle: Who is more adorable? To settle this debate, both pups don their legendary costumes to ensure justice for all of the animal kingdom.


Right away, you can see the time and work that went into this film. Whether it’s the sets, the costumes or Batdog’s signature Batmobile, this film embodies the phrase, “Go big or go home.” It’s no surprise, really. Crusoe is a professional in every sense of the word, and always makes sure his productions are top-notch, down to the tiniest detail.


A lot of people have been wondering whether “Batdog v. Superdog” would have a high body count. After all, Superdog’s previous film, “Pup of Steel,” featured him gnawing on the evil General Zod after the pup destroyed a good portion of Metropolis.


This is something that has divided Superdog fans to this day. Luckily, there’s little of that echoed here. Crusoe clearly listened to his fans and made sure that the hallways and living rooms where Batdog and Superdog had their epic final battle were empty.


At least, mostly empty.


There’s a bit of a controversial scene where Superdog chews on the body of his Lois Lane plush toy shortly after saving her from a fiery death.


Crusoe hasn’t yet commented why he decided to have Superdog commit such a violent crime against the plush toy he loves, but we’ll keep you posted.


And the attacks don’t end there. Batdog clearly has more of an edge in this film than previous renditions of the character. He’s bitter, he’s angry and he’s ready to take any action necessary to get the job done.


It really culminates in the final battle, where *SPOILERS* Batdog and Superdog join forces to combat an even greater enemy. You can really see Oakley testing his acting limits, and he turns out a powerhouse performance that’s sure to get the attention of both critics and fans.


If there’s one criticism, it’s that the film was a bit too short. At less than three and a half minutes, there are some character studies that sadly get left out. I would’ve loved to see more of the psychological battle between these two heroic pups, especially since we’re sure to see more of them in future films.

“Batdog v. Superdog: Dawn of Biscuits” is the superhero film fans have been waiting for. It’s the Dachshund vs. Dachshund battle decades in the making, and it leaves audiences begging for more.

Enjoy for yourself below.
