Description

Megan Leavey is based on the true life story of a young marine corporal (Kate Mara) whose unique discipline and bond with her military combat dog saved many lives during their deployment in Iraq. When she is assigned to clean up the K9 unit after a disciplinary hearing, Leavey identifies with a particularly aggressive dog, Rex, and is given the chance to train him. Over the course of their service, Megan and Rex completed more than 100 missions until an IED explosion injures them, putting their fate in jeopardy. Directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite (Blackfish) from a screenplay by Pamela Gray and Annie Mumolo & Tim Lovestedt, the film also stars Edie Falco, Ramón Rodríguez, Bradley Whitford, and Common.

    Here’s the thing. Some people will rate this movie low because they are rating it for its cinematic value. But, this is a true story. The movie in my opinion was good. So I give it five stars. Why? Because, in life this women did what was right for herself and for her loved one Rex. A lot of people won’t be able to relate even after seeing the movie of the trauma that Veteran humans and service animals go through. But, I see it at Fort Hood all the time and in airports. The dedication these animals have to their handlers is unmatchable to any human to human bond. They 100% put their four legged lives on the line everyday and protect those they serve. They deserve more recognition and dedication to bringing them home and making them a service companion for other soldiers who understand the lives these dogs have led. Because of bomb detection programs military men and women have escaped death more than without the program. I solute them 100%. This movie deserved more promotion and recognition. Especially in a world that currently disrespects the service men and women coming home.
