A collection of pictures depicting service dogs was shown in the end credits of the movie. Some of the pictures used are from a National Geographic article titled "The Dogs of War". See more »
There are no mountains, majestic high rocky cliffs, or fast-flowing clear-water rivers in or near Angelina County, Texas. Notably, rivers in this area tend to be muddy, and only flow quickly after a major rain. See more »
I wanted to tell Kyle, I wanted him to know the truth. But the way he looked at me, the way he looked up to me... I just couldn't do it. A hero always tells the truth no matter what people think about him or no matter what the consequences are. And you have always been that way Justin.

A Great Dog Movie!
Who are these naysayers panning this film? They obviously lack hearts and/or pets. And what is wrong with a predictable movie about a heroic army dog? I found the script actually ambitious in trying to cover a wide gamut of issues. But always at the core of the film is great love for Max and the central characters. It's a family film filled with the angst that everyone experiences in family relationships. It's also filled with great love within the family and the challenges that come with expressing it. The action sequences are breathtaking! I was actually relieved that it was a Disney movie because in the scariest of moments, I hoped Disney wouldn't break my heart. I don't think children under 7 should see this without parents nearby to hold their hands. Tissues are recommended for all but the hardest hearted movie critics.
