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.

Loved this movie. It depicts the reality of war in a manageable manner that all ages can watch this movie. The bond between a Marine Dog and Marine is a teaching example to all of us that Love and the relentless pursuit of love does impact our lives in a healthy and wonderful manner. The acting was exceptional and the storyline does not get watered down by hollywood. What a great movie and a great reminder how fortunate we are to have Marines and Marine Dogs in our society. Beautiful.
I absolutely loved this movie.Whatever bad stuff people are saying about this movie is not true. Kate Mara did and incredible job playing Megan, and the way the dogs are trained for the film is great!!! This movie has its happy and sad moments but it kept me wanting more the whole time.
Loved every minute of this film. Well done by all the actors, both human & canine. Very touching movie 👏💜💜
I want to see this movie so bad and while I’m looking it up my dog is just barking and howling outside from The previews it looks like it will be a very good movie
I LOVE THIS MOVIE Kate Mara great job this movie inspires me for so many things
I love this movie
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.
This is by far one of my favorite movies. It is awesome.
