Storyline

A.X.L. is a top-secret, robotic dog created by the military to help protect tomorrow's soldiers. Code named by the scientists who created him, A.X.L. stands for Attack, Exploration, Logistics, and embodies the most advanced, next-generation artificial intelligence. After an experiment gone wrong, A.X.L. is discovered hiding alone in the desert by a kind-hearted outsider named Miles (Alex Neustaedter), who finds a way to connect with him after activating his owner-pairing technology. Together, the two develop a special friendship based on trust, loyalty and compassion. Helping Miles gain the confidence he's been lacking, A.X.L. will go to any length to protect his new companion, including facing off against the scientists who created him and who will do anything to get him back. Knowing what is at stake if A.X.L. is captured, Miles teams up with a smart, resourceful ally named Sara (Becky G) to protect his new best friend on a timeless, epic adventure for the whole family.

Good family film
1 September 2018 | by adcooper-63580See all my reviews

Admittedly this is not an Oscar winner of any kind. However, I took my 8 year to see it and she loved it. I thought the story and acting was decent and the special effects good. Mostly I really enjoyed watching a non Disney animated film with my child that was free from bad language and constant references to sex. If you have kids go see this film - we thought it was a winner.
