Reanimating movie about what is truly valuable in life (by marygreene-895-414606)
God, thanks to the man from neighboring house, who told me "Just watch this movie", when we met on the street walking our dogs; thanks to all the people who made this movie, it's great. And thanks to Megan Leavey and Rex. You are the greatest.
An absolutely incredible, emotional true story (by jeffsalter-92-183593)
First, let me say I am a military veteran who served in combat, as well as a former law enforcement officer. I've "walked the walk," as they say, so when I watch a war movie I tend to be critical, though a good story always satisfies me.Megan Leavey is one of THE best movies I have ever seen. Knowing this was the true story of a Marine working dog handler and her experiences, I was anxious to see this film - especially because it featured dogs, specifically Rex, Megan Leavey's military working dog played by an actor, of course .I found the portrayal of military life to be <more>
genuine, as was the war footage. Megan Leavey actually served two tours in Iraq, though the film only shows her being deployed once.I won't post spoilers, but suffice to say this is a highly emotional, triumphant film based on real-life experiences in the Iraq war. Megan Leavey was a hero, as was her dog Rex. Highly recommended!
Heart wrenching and heartwarming (by xana-hendrickx)
This movie really moved me. This is based on the true story of Megan Leavey which is an unbelievable story, but oh so beautiful. Never a dull moment in this movie. At times it is heart wrenching and at times it is heart warming. I do think this is a story that only dog owners/lovers will understand to the fullest. Enjoy!
Very enjoyable exploration of emotional bond between a human and animal (by rannynm)
I really enjoyed this film. It explores the emotional bond between an animal and a human being.The film is based on the true story of marine corporal who forms a unique bond with a bomb-sniffing dog. Megan Leavey Kate Mara enlists to get away from what seems to be a hopeless civilian life. She is an aimless young woman with a deadbeat mom, Jackie Edie Falco . Megan struggles to fit in as a Marine and, after a disciplinary hearing due to misappropriate behavior, is caught urinating outside of the Provost office after a night of drinking. She is assigned to clean up the K- 9 unit under the <more>
command of Gunny Martin Common . Gunny Martin is a commander who uses tough love while being a mentor. My favorite scene in the movie is when Megan finds out that she will get a dog to train and it turns out to be a can. It seems that newbies practice training a dog with a can. It is a bit humorous but shows Megan's determination to get a real dog. Megan bonds with an aggressive German shepherd name Rex and is given the opportunity to train him. Megan and Rex end up completing more than 100 missions, but an IED explosion injures them both and puts their fate in jeopardy.Megan Leavey has lots of wartime violence, strong language and intense themes including trauma and grief. It also shows the strength of women and their accomplishments while not focusing on the brutality of war. This is an inspiring film that I believe is most suited for ages 13 to 18 as well as some adults. I give this film 5 out of 5 stars. It opens nationwide June 9, 2017 so, be sure to go see it and learn what happens to Megan and Rex. Reviewed by Juanita Seon L. KIDS FIRST! Adult Juror.
The story of the bond between humans & animals.... (by easkeen)
My husband and I were fortunate to attend a premier of this movie last night and we really enjoyed it much more than expected. Although it was meaningful in that my own daughter was a Marine and of course the scenes at graduation ceremony in Parris Island brought back so many memories...but it was her loyalty to this dog and the way they were able to capture it on film that endured me. Despite all the odds against her, she was NOT going to let this dog perish in the system. He deserved better and she fought to make sure he got better. THAT is a beautiful thing! <3
I will keep this simple... (by alanharper)
As promised, I will keep this simple. If you are a dog lover, don't mind shedding a tear I'm a 38 year old male former enforcement officer, it got me you will enjoy this movie. Simples.It has been broken into three parts, first is a build up of character for Leavey, second is the relationship between Leavey and Rex in Iraq, third is the "fight". Some people are saying the third part was a bit of a let down, but, personally, i was happy with it. I did not realise I had been watching the film for its run time thinking it still must have a while to go at the credits. Always a <more>
Don't Leavey Your Tissues Behind! Solid Portrayal of Military Bonding (by rgkarim)
This weekend is certainly a mixed bag of movies from adventure/fantasy to horror/mystery. So why not throw in a military/biographical/drama into the fray as well, this time portraying a different, and more realistic, female super hero. If you are reading past my confusing opening, and the title of this review , you know I'm talking about Megan Leavey. With leash, and gun, in hand, this movie is the chronicle of her walk into the life of a hero and the struggles she had to climb over to succeed. What's the verdict? You'll have to read on to find out!LIKES:Acting: Kate Mara was a <more>
fantastic pick for the lead of this movie. Based on Leavey's history from the little research I've done , Mara was able to play the emotional rainbow required of this complicated role. The angst of a rebellious young adult is perfectly portrayed, with enough saucy edge to keep things spicy, while only going over the line occasionally. Yet, the real portrayal of her talents is her acting of honor, valor, and trauma that comes with being a real-life hero. You'll feel all the emotional turmoil, or in some cases lack of emotional turmoil, associated with marine life and the sense of duty before self. Many audience members became entangled in all the feelings of the movie, captivating them in the story. Good Pace: We know that many military dramas are a little long winded, whether in build up or the tail end of the spectrum. Not the case for Megan Leavey. This movie keeps things moving quite well, blending excitement, suspense, and character development in a decently condensed time. The training portion of the movie is funny and heartwarming as bond between dog and human is formed, adequately building what will be the key foundation for the rest of the movie. Once the exciting deployment begins, the tension only surmounts and keeps one further fastened into the movie, constantly reeled in with each ticking minute as they perform their duty. It's engaging! It's exciting! And it is real!The Dog: Let's face it though, the best part of this movie for most is going to be getting to see the dog or dogs trained to sniff out bombs. Megan Leavey may be a tale about a woman transforming into a hero, but the director also does extraordinary work with the developing the dog's status as a warrior itself. Watching Rex perform all the duties required of him is awesome, feeling like a human actor himself rather than a four-legged accessory. If you think Mara is the emotional lure in the film, then yes you are correct, but that would make Rex the lighthouse of emotions drawing you more into the flame of this movie. Watching Rex with the consistent worry that something will happen is the true suspense of this movie, I myself silently praying he would make it home alive. DISLIKES:Movie magic drama: We know that when it comes to describing drama, many films can exaggerate the truth. While I'm not certain how tough Megan's life was, this movie had many moments and characters that felt a little overdramatic to me. I'm not talking about the war aspect, we know that's hell. No, the real overacted moments come in the form of her family life, primarily the interaction with her mom. Eye-rolling moments aside, fans who like these overzealous characters are in for a treat, but it hit some nerves and took away from the movie. The Final Act: Megan Leavey's film is split into three parts for me and the first two parts are epically put together to keep the film exciting. The third part however, is more on the slower side and not the area I would have spent a great deal of time on. I can't say much without ruining things, but here it goes. This finale is certainly emotional, well designed, and a fine example of character development. However, the pace changes at this part, doesn't focus on the chemistry I fell in love with. Yes, it's emotional, and the parts are well put together, I just wanted a little more time with the dog and woman. Theater Worthy?: This is a tough component because there is a lot about this movie I like. However, I can't say the movie was really something that needed to be in theaters. With few special effects and stunts, and a story that, while touching, isn't an epic, adventure/book like drama that Hollywood theaters have captured. Instead, this movie would have been solid on the History Channel or a Netflix original movie where you could enjoy it in the comfort of your own home. So, don't behead me people, I'm just trying to save you some money to maximize the quality of the film. The VERDICT:Megan Leavey is one of the better military drams I've seen in a while. A fantastic chemistry between man and dog uniting to portray the honor of military service is a leading factor to see this movie. With emotional sequences captured by beautiful cinematography and epic acting, you'll find this at the top of a lot of drama loving lists. Yet, it still lacks some finesse in terms of perfect pace and even more lacks the theater quality effects that make the expensive ticket worthwhile, unless you get the discount show. Still it is a movie worth checking out when you can, to pay tribute to an honorable woman, her dog, and the heroes that are our military. Biography/Drama/War: 8.5 Movie Overall: 6.5
Really enjoyed this film! A very well acted and touching Gem of a film. The young lead actress nailed the part and was very convincing and quite good in this movie. I felt the sincerity throughout the film. If your looking for a violent action film from beginning to end I would suggest you pass. But if your looking for a film with lots of heart then i highly recommend this one. Two Thumbs Up....Way Up!
Kate Mara deserves an Oscar nomination (by TheBigSick)
Kate Mara gives a natural, earnest and honest portrayal of the titular character Megan Leavey, a US marine who is in love with her military working dog Rex. The storytelling is rather mild and plain. But Mara's performance really moves the audience, making the movie uplifting and heartwarming.
