Max: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

Max is a Belgian Malinois serving with his handler, Kyle (Robbie Amell) in Kandahar Afghanistan sniffing out some weapons in villages that is going to be sold to the terrorist. One day, an ambush leaves Kyle dead with his remains brought to Texas. With Max traumatized and distraught to return to duty, they need to put him down for good. But the Wincott family considered to adopt the canine and let Kyle's younger brother Justin (Josh Wiggins) to take good care of it. 

Max is a family-oriented film and a definite crowd pleaser. Even the story is a bit clumsy at times; some of its scenes are heartwarming, especially the funeral part where you'll surely be moved. The interaction between Max and Josh Wiggins is a good take keeping the film compelling from start to finish. It also has some funny parts mostly provided Justin's best bud Chuy (Dejon LaQuake) and Chuy's cousin, Carmen (Mia Xitlali). It may be too predictable at times, but that is what will make the film warm received by its viewers. 

Overall, Max is a well crafted film that is engaging throughout. It is a must-see for dog lovers out there and a first step for people who wants to have a fur buddy and a best friend at home. It also has enough charm power to avoid its viewers coming home empty handed.

Lakwatsera Lovers rates it 8.5 out of 10 stars
