When Kyle Wincott is killed in the war, his war dog, Max, suffers from stress. Max is to be put down because he has trouble listening to anyone else, until he meets Justin, Kyle's brother. Justin adopts and saves Max. Then both of their lives will never be the same again.Written by
In one scene, you can see that Justin has a poster on his wall of an MMO game called Guild Wars 2 See more »
Lufkin, Texas in July has a temperature that ranges from 90° to 99° Fahrenheit with intense humidity. Wearing light jackets and fuzzy hats while riding bikes through the woods would be very uncomfortable there, but suitable in North Carolina where the movie was filmed. See more »

Predictable, stereotyped, godawful excuse for a movie.
Absolutely one of the worst movies I've seen all year. The plot is painfully predictable, the acting is cringeworthy (the dialogue scenes involving Thomas Haden Church and Josh Wiggins are almost comically bad in terms of timing and delivery), all the characters are stereotypes of stereotypes and the dialogue matches, there's a huge amount of racial stereotyping in a movie that (ironically) takes a really preachy and awkwardly framed stance against racism, and the third act completely disregards physics as being a thing that exists. It isn't even just the normal action-movie level of poorly-shot nonsense, it's urban-legend-Fast-And-Furious-video-game BS. Otherworldy stuff. Seriously, don't see this movie, save yourself, I'll hold them back (there is an actual scene in the film where this happens, by the by. Like, someone wrote that into the script and decided to leave it there. They thought it was actually a good idea. That's the level this film is on). And yet I still have seen almost every review for this thing praise Josh Wiggins' acting. Seriously? The kid had almost negative emotion the entire film. Nothing. There was nothing coming from him. He was nothing the entire movie, the same exact expression on his face, the same exact tone of voice, the same exact terrible cadence. As of this review's posting, Max stands at a 7.7 rating on this site. How?!?!?! Guys! This is a bad movie! REALLY BAD! How do people like it? How? I am legitimately concerned and somewhat curious because I do not understand all ya'll and your perspective on this. Is it because Jesus and America? Is that why? Ugh. That seriously might be it. I could type for at least ten pages on how bad this film is, but honestly, I'd rather not waste any more time and just end the review with an extremely serious recommendation that every copy of this film be found and burned. I'm serious guys. Totally serious right now.
But for real, don't see Max. Just don't.
