Reviews:
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Based on a true story, MEGAN LEAVEY is that rare breed: a war movie that actually shows something new about war, a sub-culture within a familiar sub-culture, the world of the military's K-9 units." - 06/09/2017 RogerEbert.com


"[A]n even-tempered slice of pro-animal sentimentality....[The film] wears its emotions honestly and benefits from offering a look at a rarely explored arena of human-animal relationships: dogs trained for combat." - 06/08/2017 Los Angeles Times


"[A] compelling metaphor for a woman finding independence and empowerment, it dramatizes a primal emotional relationship that proves heartbreaking and triumphant." - 06/08/2017 Boston Globe


"[An] irresistible real-life story....If the conclusion doesn’t bring a tear to your eye, you’re way too cynical." - 06/08/2017 New York Times


3 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he movie earns your tears....Kate Mara is raw and riveting in the title role..." - 06/08/2017 Rolling Stone


"[I]t’s a cut above likeminded efforts such as MAX and ARMY DOG, and represents a reasonably moving tribute to an unlikely, and unbreakable, friendship." - 05/30/2017 Variety
