Movie Reviews:

  • Svumpukkel85: For me being a non-dog-lover, I don’t get this movie.

    Acting was ok, filming ok. Superficial representation of characters. No tension and no feelings ewoked.

    It was a lame 1½ hr. I recommend this movie for dog-lovers.

  • Reno: **At the end, every hero’s life should be ‘happily ever after’!**

    From the director of ‘Blackfish’. It could have been another fine documentary, in the end it was a right choice to be made as a feature film. This is a biographical film, a war drama. The story of a young woman who joined the US army and developed a close relationship with a military dog. They both served in the Iraq war and later separated. So she fought for the dog’s custody, especially after it retiring from the service. A touching story about man- animal bonding. You might have seen many dog films, but this is different and so good.

    People have rights to choose what they want to be. Most importantly, they can change the field at any time. At least that’s how things happen in a democracy. But that’s not the case for animals, especially human pets under any kind of the ruling system. Why should animals fight human wars! There were many kinds of animal slaveries abolished, yet this kind of legal things still going on. In the present world, it could be okay, but as an animal lover, I hope in the near future, it’ll be called inhumane.

    Anyhow, this is a must watch if you are a pet/dog lover. If you ever had a dog, you will feel more connected to it. The story was told from Megan Leavey’s perspective, but Rex, the dog was the real hero. Both, the real and film dog. I have seen many films of Kate Mara, but when it comes dominant performance, this is the one. This is not a multi- star cast as her most of the film, so she did an awesome job. Slightly emotional too, a good film for all ages. Particularly this is a chic film that’s not a romance or a comedy. Equivalent to any men’s films.
