I'm a huge supporter of our US Military soldiers, as well as military war dogs! I believe ALL war dogs should return home, and they should be given a hero's life. "Megan Leavey" is a true story. She was a real soldier, and so was her war dog. She fought for her dog to return home with her, and she wouldn't give up! I would recommend this movie, because it exhibits the true dedication of a soldier to save her dog from euthanization and the lengths she would go, to save her dog... Just as her war dog saved her, and the lives of our soldiers....
Outstanding movie from start to finish. It shows us just how special a bond between an animal and a human can become. It showed how animals help people heal who are broken .This movie teaches us how some animals will give their lives for their handler and it let us see the intelligence and drive the working dog has. The courage and bravery that was portrayed in the movie was moving . It's no wonder a dog is called mans best friend.
Megan Leavey tells an honest, touching true story of love, friendship, and fighting the good fight on the battlefield and off of it. It's also a story of personal transformation, growth in courage, and finding a place in the world. It's well acted and nicely assembled, one of the more agreeable and heartfelt films of the year. Universal's Blu-ray offers good video and audio but only one brief supplement. Recommended.
Based on a true story, I first read about the story in the news some time back. It is not just humans but some animals that have difficulty adjusting to life and from time to time the two find their counterpart and form a bond that time, distance and circumstances are obstacles to overcome to continue that bond. This is the story of one such friendship that is shy of extraordinary. I personally enjoyed this immensely and highly recommend it.
