For those who love dogs, this movie is a good choice. This true story is emotional especially in the last part but overall the feelings are there and they are very real because of the good acting offered by Kate Mara and a few more actors. The pace is also good and i liked how Gabriela Cowperthwaite managed things here. Common is a good asset. Band of Horses as well. 7.5/10
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.
