MAX is a fantastic movie for the whole family with a great mix of heart tugging moments, comedy, love, action, triumphs and a peek inside the lives of our military families. Plus, the main character is a dog, I'm sold!!
A precision-trained military dog, Max serves on the front lines 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.

Here's what our screeners had to say...
“It was an awesome movie. Love how Max protected his family and brought the son and dad together.”
“We are so very blessed to have armed forces. You don’t think about them using dogs to help in keeping us safe. It’s amazing that a dog can be trained to do so much that humans can’t do. This will most definitely be a movie I buy to watch over and over.”
“I loved how the crowd clapped and cheered on the happy moments!”
“It was wonderful. I think everyone needs to see it. One of my favorites.”
“I love seeing the service animals”
“I was balling, it was an awesome movie.”
