All you really need for a movie is a human being and a dog and the rest writes itself. But even in that case, Megan Leavey is a fascinating story, generally well-paced but always well-acted. When it's time to get emotionally saccharine in the third act, you'll be happy to know that, like its central character, the film keeps its cool and ends with a strong, endearing finale. Also has a great performance by Common.
