Max review – Lassie Come Home with combat stress – The Guardian

A tribute to the Noble American Hound. Its hero is a malinois[1] (like a German shepherd, only Belgian) back from duty with the US marines in Afghanistan, where its young Texan handler has been killed in action. Returning home with frazzled nerves, Max helps bring some homeland evildoers to justice and teaches a rebellious teenager (Josh Wiggins) the meaning of responsibility. A watchable but predictable family film drenched in stars-and-stripes piety Lassie Come Home with combat stress.
