    Moderately engaging war film

    The film centers around a directionless woman who joins the Marines and ends up working in Iraq with Rex, a bomb sniffing dog. Hard to dislike a movie with a dog. My only criticism of the film is that, at 1 hour, 56 minutes in length, it was long enough to address issues such as, but not limited to, how Rex went from being very aggressive to mellow (it is a very quick transition in the film), why Megan chose to leave the Marines when her enlistment was up (thereby leaving Rex in harms way with a new handler) and what health issue Rex supposedly was dealing with near the end of the film. In my view, some of the substantial time spent developing Megan's character (she's not that interesting in the film) could have been better spent addressing these and other issues that were largely left open.

    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.

    Patriotic drama about the scars of war.

    Many war movies either too glorify war or too blatantly vilify our soldiers. This movie takes a realistic middle-of-the-road path that honors our soldiers' sacrifices without shying away from addressing the physical and mental scars that war inflict on our young adults. Not as good as American Sniper, but if you liked that one, you will like this one as well. Kate Mara has yet to disappoint in any of her roles.

    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.

    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.

    Kate Mara does a nice job in the leading role, although her character is not always appealing. Ultimately, its her devotion to her dog and the dog's loyalty to her that make the movie worth watching. Together they are a formidable team that contributes exceptional service.
