Good Family films are hard to come by these days without being animated or having some Disney propaganda behind it.  I was fortunate enough to screen the film Max; a film released by Warner Brothers.

Max is about a dog that helped US Marines in Afghanistan that returns to the U.S. and is adopted by his handler’s family after suffering a traumatic experience..  Max was going through some tough times adjusting and like all rescue animals, needed a good person to care for him. This isn’t a typical boy and his dog movie.  In fact this turns into an adventure with a lot of elements to keep everyone in the family vested in the characters.

All these characters are relatable; the family isn’t perfect but they stick together.  Actors such as Thomas Hayden Church and Lauren Graham play the perfect mom and dad; trying to make it in a world.  Thomas plays Ray Wincott, a former marine who has suffered a painful injury and a secret that he keeps from his youngest son Justin, played by Josh Wiggins.

 

Without giving too much away, Max and his new master Justin learn more about each other and form a bond that was similar to his prior owner.  Justin, an unruly kid, learns the values of responsibility, ownership and what it means to be a hero.  This brings the family closer together.

There are some tears that will be shed in this film, and also some moments that are a salute to the veterans who served in the world stage of combat.  In the end you will leave the film satisfied that you just enjoyed a great story.
