Megan Leavey Reviews

June 9, 2017
Like its main character, the film just isn't the same when Rex isn't around.

There's surely a great story in Megan Leavey, but it never gets sufficiently sussed out.

If you're looking for a good cry, Megan Leavey gets the job done, I suppose. But it's a bit like a wet kiss from a puppy.

With a female-directed, female-driven film this small, criticizing it feels like beating a baby seal. While well intentioned, the human-and-dog interest story lacks narrative drive and star Kate Mara is a limp noodle.

One woman + one dog = redemption. The rest of the world doesn't matter.

It's hard not to be moved by Megan's eventual reunion with Rex, but getting there should be a smoother journey.

As it stands, the movie's power never pops off the screen.

[T]he movie doesn't land that final, emotional punch.

Audibly groans under the weight of its feminist good intentions.

This is a film that can't decide if it wants to be a war movie or a rescue dog melodrama and therefore falls into cinematic no-man's/woman's-land.

When Megan Leavey touches upon the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder in both humans and animals, it looks capable of bringing something novel to the human-and-dog formula. Most of the time, it's a rote biography of someone a dog really liked.

A glossy, facile and TV-ready tribute to a heroic woman who deserves a much better movie.

Everyone here, from fellow marines to Iraqis, is merely a supporting player in Megan Leavey's emotional journey.
