A precision-trained military dog, Max serves on the frontlines in Afghanistan alongside his handler, U.S. Marine Kyle Wincott. But when things go terribly wrong on maneuvers, Kyle is mortally wounded and Max, traumatized by the loss of his best friend, is unable to remain in service. Sent stateside, the only human he seems willing to connect with is Kyle’s teenage brother, Justin, so Max is saved when he is adopted by Kyle’s family. But Justin has issues of his own, including living up to his father’s expectations, and he isn’t interested in taking responsibility for his brother’s troubled dog. However, Max may be Justin’s only chance to discover what really happened to his brother that day on the front, and with the help of Carmen, a tough-talking young teen who has a way with dogs, Justin begins to appreciate his canine companion. Justin’s growing trust in Max helps the four-legged veteran revert back to his heroic self, and as the pair race to unravel the mystery, they find more excitement—and danger—than they bargained for. But they each might also find an unlikely new best friend…in each other.

We are a dog lover family so Max was a movie that I wanted to see as soon as it came out and I was excited when I had the opportunity to review it. It’s about a military trained dog named Max who’s handler is a U.S. Marine named Kyle. Something goes wrong and Kyle is killed in Afghanistan and Max is traumatized by the loss of his best friend and unable to remain in service. He ends up being adopted by Kyle’s family after Kyle’s brother, Justin, ends up bonding with him. Things take a turn when Justin begins to discover that there is more to his brother’s death. Here is a little bit of a spoiler alert since this is a question I am constantly asked, no the dog does not die. I know many people who wouldn’t watch this movie because they thought the dog would die, so rest assured, he stays alive.

I did shed a few tears during the movie, but not too much. It had some intense, suspenseful moments, but overall it’s a heart warming film that I really enjoyed. MAX Arrives Onto Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on October 27 or Own it Early on Digital HD on October 13!

    I’m so glad you told us that the dog doesn’t die. I don’t like to watch animal movies where they die, so this is good for me to know. It looks like a really touching movie.
