New Dog-Centered Film, Max Opens to Mixed Reviews

We have posted many times about military working dogs (MWD): about their bravery, their loyalty, their relationship with their handler, and what happens after their service is over. A new film, Max, seems to have combined many of these best stories into one plot. Watch the trailer above, and you may recognize some scenes from actual news stories. So far, the film has gotten decidedly mixed reviews, although the public seems to like it much more than the critics do, based on the scores at the Rotten Tomatoes website. An article on Slate argues that real MWDs are actually much more awesome than the dog in the film.

Has anyone seen it and care to comment below? Is it worth seeing in the theater?
