After U.S. Marine Kyle is killed in Afghanistan, Max, his highly trained service dog, is too much in shock to remain in service. Back in the U.S., Kyle’s family adopts the dog. Max finds the same qualities of Kyle in his teenage brother Justin (Josh Wiggins), who has problems of his own and doesn’t want the animal. However, Max may be Justin’s only chance to learn what really happened to his brother. With the help of a dog-savvy friend, Justin and Max begin to bond, How they gonna unravel the mystery of Kyle’s death is the story line of the movie.
The movie is tribute to dogs and their trainer killed in Afghanistan war. The beauty of the movie is the bond of any animal to his owner and that’s soul of the movie. The director is able to keep suspense of the movie till end.
Movie is bit on slow side and I think that is required to feel the movie. The movie also talks about the special abilities of animal of judging characters of people and sensing danger.
