If you haven't seen Max in theaters yet, you're running out of time to share what is a rare family-friendly film with a message of love as well as dedication and patriotism. The story involves a military bomb and arms sniffing dog who loses his handler to an enemy attack in Afghanistan. The dog, impacted by the trauma and loss of his handler, is returned to the United States suffering from PTSD. He is no longer functional as a search dog and can't be handled by anyone else. Scheduled to be put down, the handler's family offers to care for him. The father places the dog under the care of the handler's young, troubled teen brother and an automatic bond is formed. This tale, in the spirit of Rin Tin Tin and Lassie offers some excitement, plenty of drama and a good message. If you have time before it leaves your theater, take your kids and perhaps a couple of tissues to enjoy Max.
