Refusing to give up on his beloved companion, Harding’s unfaltering belief in his partner and family leads Harding on a mission to clear his longtime partner’s good name.

Dove Review

“Ace of Hearts” delivers a winning hand! The three leads in this film, who play a husband and wife and daughter, are in excellent form and the story plays out as one of suspense and mystery. Dean Cain heads the cast as Officer Daniel Harding, a distinguished K-9 police unit member. He is very fond of his dog Ace, who is the best at chasing down criminals and villains. Ace is accused of mauling a criminal suspect, but it is Harding who suspects that the criminal inflicted the wounds on himself to escape jail. A crisis occurs when the DA dictates the dog should be euthanized.

Though sometimes overlooked due to her father’s busy schedule, young Julia (Britt McKillip) conducts her own investigation to prove Ace’s innocence. A few twists in the story will keep the viewer glued to the screen to see the anticipated resolution. This film, free from strong language, is a good family choice for those who love to see a good story and for those who love dogs and pets. There is also a discussion on forgiving others and a biblical quote of believing without seeing. We happily award this film our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal. As a story for the heart, it’s an ace all the way!
