    A Belgian shepherd dog named Max, used in service in the war in Afghanistan, comes home after his master, a member of the Marine Corps, dies in combat. Max’s master’s younger brother Justin is a snide adolescent boy who’s becoming more rebellious against his dad. Reluctantly, Justin takes responsibility for Max, and by circumstances rather than his own choice, gets pushed in the direction of heroism. This opportunity for Justin to be a hero comes when one of the Marines who served with his brother pursues criminal weapons transactions back home in Angelina County, Texas, in the same neighborhood where Max and Justin and Justin’s parents live. (It was filmed in North Carolina, though, the end credits reveal.) The safety of Justin’s parents depends on him and Max working together with two of Justin’s buddies to stop the criminals and save Justin’s dad.

    I couldn't wait to see this movie in a theater and loved it mostly because I had a dog named Max. It has a moving story about the love of a dog with the alpha leader of the pack who happens to be in the military. Not to give to much away but this dog is witness to his masters murder. It's heart warming to see the family of the soldier take in the dog which also helps the younger son of the family to be more aware of life outside of video games. There's some action scenes too. I couldn't wait to get this movie on blu ray and see the behind the scenes of the making of the movie. Highly recommend the movie.

    Being a military family, we gravitated to this movie instantly. After reading the reviews, we were pleasantly surprised to see that even our youngest child could watch this movie. It's a really good family movie. For those that cry watching movies, this one will do that for a few minutes that will touch your heart. The story line is good and you will enjoy it. Maybe it will even inspire you to check out these special dogs and the many other dogs in your local shelters and make one a part of your family.

    This movie was awesome! It was a good family movie about a dog of war whose handler dies at war and is forced to live life with the handlers family. The family doesn't know how to handle or care for a service dog and the dog doesn't know how to handle life away from combat. It teaches us how these things are dealt with. Good movie for the family and for learning what happens to service/working dogs when they can no longer work.

    Not Just for Kids

    When I see a movie with a dog, I automatically assume it is a kids' movie - which is fine, because I like kids' movies. We rented Max because it looked like it would be good, but interestingly, it was my husband, not my animal-loving daughter, who said, "We need to buy this movie!" So we got it for him for Christmas. Excellent movie. Good story. You may shed a tear, but it's not an in-your-face find of tear-jerker.

    MAX, a Belgian Malinois, is a great "war dog"

    MAX, a Belgian Malinois [similar to a German Police Dog but slightly smaller] and his Marine partner are on patrol in Afghanistan and the discover an arms-catch in a remote village. The story is superbly-told, well-acted, and it is directed by a sensitive hand. This is the kind of family movie that will emotionally connect with young and old alike – suitable for ages 10 and above.

The two strike up a strong friendship which delivers excitement and danger throughout the movie.
