About the Movie

Megan Leavey is based on the true life story of a young marine corporal (Kate Mara) whose unique discipline and bond with her military combat dog saved many lives during their deployment in Iraq. When she is assigned to clean up the K9 unit after a disciplinary hearing, Leavey identifies with a particularly aggressive dog, Rex, and is given the chance to train him. Over the course of their service, Megan and Rex completed more than 100 missions until an IED explosion injures them, putting their fate in jeopardy. Directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite (Blackfish) from a screenplay by Pamela Gray and Annie Mumolo & Tim Lovestedt, the film also stars Edie Falco, Ramón Rodríguez, Bradley Whitford, and Common.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: If the conclusion doesn't bring a tear to your eye, you're way too cynical. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, Jun 8, 2017

Rotten: If you're looking for a good cry, Megan Leavey gets the job done, I suppose. But it's a bit like a wet kiss from a puppy. – Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly, Jun 9, 2017

Fresh: Kate Mara is raw and riveting in the title role, a marine who ends up in combat in Iraq with a bomb-sniffing German shepherd. It's a true story that earns your tears. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Jun 19, 2017

Fresh: May not be the smoothest piece of filmmaking, but wears its emotions honestly and benefits from offering a look at a rarely explored arena of human-animal relationships: dogs trained for combat. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Jun 9, 2017

Great Movie


megan leavey

One of the best movies I have seen in a long time. How they trained these dogs for the film is unbelievable. The movie put you in with the soldiers as if you are there with them, so realistic, sad and scray. Just a great movie, unfortuately the title doesn't give it justice and very little publicity.

Leavey, Megan

I really enjoyed this true story movie in theaters last night with mom and we loved it. I will own this movie in a few more years.
