A true heart warmer.

This movie is just simply awesome. Whether you're a kid or an adult, this movie is fantastic. It's not the typical sunshine and rainbows kids' movie you typically see. The film actually portrays some of the struggles we can face early on in life and how that some problems that may seem impossible can become very real. This movie is about a dog but it's also about a teenager who's finding the courage to face the problems he has and to move out of his comfort zone with the help of a dog named Max who is simply a hero to his family and his friends. If you ever dealt with very real issues at a young age or you love a plot you don't typically see, you're going to love this one. This is not a cheesy movie. It's very legit and original. Don't let Metascore or whatever stupid company sway your opinion.

convoluted story

Kyle Wincott (Robbie Amell) and his dog Max are hunting for weapons in Afganistan. His superiors suspect some of the confiscated weapons have gone missing. Kyle's younger brother Justin is a disappointment to their father Ray (Thomas Haden Church). Pamela (Lauren Graham) is their loving mother. When Kyle is killed, Max is devastated and becomes uncontrollable. Max is taken to Justin during the funeral and Justin adopts him. Justin's friend Chuy's cousin Carmen helps him train Max. Chuy's other cousin Emilio is a drug dealer. Kyle's suspicious comrade Tyler Harne comes to visit and Max is not happy.

The plot is more convoluted than necessary. Max as a war dog should be enough to make a tear jerker. Instead, this is overloaded with convenient bad guys with an interconnected villainous plot. A simpler villain for Justin and Max to tackle would have made this infinitely more compelling. I don't find anybody overly objectionable. It is the story that needs some cleaning up. Also, I was hoping the Mexican kids could buck the stereotype but they end up having a drug dealing cousin. A feel-good old fashion war dog movie could be good family fun but this keeps going off track.

Good story, irritating characters

Storyline good, but portrayal of Texans detracted from the movie and made it quite comical. I'm surprised everyone didn't ride around on horses carrying a rifle on their back shooting all the "Mexicans" because we are all apparently racist towards hispanics. The young kid wears a shirt that says "'Murica". They all talk slow; the neighbor yells he is going to shoot the dog with his '45. The dad comments about guns at the beginning of the show and just pulls a gun out mid-show (don't want to say too much). The Hispanics are represented as "surprisingly normal" as if to surprise all the racist white people in Texas. I was so insulted by all of the ridiculous portrayals, it was hard to enjoy an otherwise great storyline and family movie. My husband and I actually made a game of what stereotypical thing would be said or implied next. I can't tell you how many times we nailed it or I would say too much. Also, the kids are wearing hoodies and a redneck fur hat in what is supposedly July in Texas. Really? Have any of these people ever been to Texas?
