“Megan Leavey” is based on a true story about a Marine who after boot camp is assigned to the Canine Unit where Bomb Sniffing dogs are trained and then sent with their soldier into combat.
Megan Leavey (Kate Mara) gets assigned to “Rex” a German Shepherd. “Rex” didn’t like his previous soldier and actually bit him. Megan however is determined to change “Rex’s” behavior and make him the very best Bomb sniffing dog in the unit. Soon after training Megan’s unit deploys to Iraq. The story unfolds from there…
The story is heart-warming and at times sad. The movie has the ability to bring tears to your eyes. With that being said though, the movie is executed very well and is very entertaining and intriguing.
“Megan Leavey” is not billed as a big box office hit, but it’s definitely better than any other movies of its type that opened this weekend.
“Megan Leavey” is definitely worth a look.
This is a 4 Star Movie!
