[6.75/10] Megan Leavey (2017)

Megan Leavey (2017)

Quick Review: Inspired by a true story that is so heartfelt, it deserves to be told, "Megan Leavey" may be by-the-numbers, even stereotypical at times, but that barely takes away from its credibility. Though set in the army, the film is all about the strong bond between a female marine and her combat dog, which is so moving, it packs the movie with an emotional punch that will surely hit you right in the heart. Kate Mara appears truly invested in the title character, giving a fantastic performance.

I'd heard about this one. Does the dog die in the end? Because it's right out then. (I've still never watched Marley and Me for that very reason.)

No, it doesn't. The film is less manipulative than that. Still kinda sad though.
