Discover a friendship that is one of a kind when Warner Bros. Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ (MGM) family-action adventure Max arrives onto Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on October 27. Max, an incredible journey about the unbreakable bond between one kid and his heroic best friend, stars Josh Wiggins (“Hellion”) as Justin Wincott, with Lauren Graham (TV’s “Parenthood”) as his mom, Pamela, and Oscar® nominee Thomas Haden Church (“Sideways”) as his dad, Ray. Max will be available to purchase at major retailers nationwide in addition to online at Amazon.
A precision-trained military dog, Max serves on the frontlines in Afghanistan alongside his handler, U.S. Marine Kyle Wincott. But when things go terribly wrong on maneuvers, Kyle is mortally wounded and Max, traumatized by the loss of his best friend, is unable to remain in service. Sent stateside, the only human he seems willing to connect with is Kyle’s teenage brother, Justin, so Max is saved when he is adopted by Kyle’s family. But Justin has issues of his own, including living up to his father’s expectations, and he isn’t interested in taking responsibility for his brother’s troubled dog. However, Max may be Justin’s only chance to discover what really happened to his brother that day on the front, and with the help of Carmen, a tough-talking young teen who has a way with dogs, Justin begins to appreciate his canine companion. Justin’s growing trust in Max helps the four-legged veteran revert back to his heroic self, and as the pair race to unravel the mystery, they find more excitement—and danger—than they bargained for. But they each might also find an unlikely new best friend…in each other.
I am so glad I waited to see this movie with my family at home. I knew I would need ample tissues for this movie and I wasn't wrong. There is just something that speaks to my heart about the bond between service animals and their handlers, in addition to people who connect with service animals and therapy dogs. We have had the pleasure and honor of meeting some of these amazing animals and their handlers/owners and it is just a touching bond. This movie was amazing and I wish it would have gotten more buzz while at the theaters because it truly deserved it. It is a must-see movie that the entire family will enjoy and is even rated a family-friendly PG rating!
