Megan Leavey

Rating = B

This is the story of a woman just coming into adulthood who is saved by a dog (Rex). One reviewer suggests the movie should be named “Megan and Rex”, because it is a love story between her and him. Together their are a marine bomb sniffing team. The war scenes in Iraq are as vivid as those in “The Hurt Locker”. In the final part of the movie, it is hard to hold back tears.
