Critic Reviews of "Max"Time OutAugust 03, 2015
Not as flag-wavingly cheesy as it might have been - but that doesn't make it a good film.ChristyLemire.comJune 29, 2015
Max is an absurdly violent PG-rated movie in which kids and dogs are repeatedly in peril.Globe and MailJune 26, 2015
Yakin doesn't condescend to his audience, and infuses his plot with a surprisingly ambitious and revealing commentary about the experience of war.Associated PressJune 26, 2015
It's like they invited the Coen brothers - or maybe Quentin Tarantino - to script a few scenes of a "Dora the Explorer" episode.Village VoiceJune 26, 2015
Yakin executes the touching material with the expected serviceability.RogerEbert.comJune 26, 2015
Lassie and her child companions often got into some dicey scrapes, but as much as I can recall, they usually didn't result in much of a body count.Baltimore MagazineJune 10, 2016
How a sweet story about a boy and his dog turns into a lame thriller about backwoods weapons dealing is anyone's guess.ABC News RadioJanuary 02, 2016
I'm sure a few people will be easily manipulated and distracted by the cute dog. It happens. Otherwise, Max is a waste of your time.The Sun (UK)January 01, 2016
Despite some great performances from both the young Wiggins, Thomas Hayden Church and the impressive and loveable Max, if you're looking for anything other than a minor distraction you're barking up the wrong tree.VoxDecember 17, 2015
Lost in this shuffle of bullets and narrow misses is Yakin's stated goal of telling a story about the great service that military dogs provide... I'm not sure where that film went, but the bizarre, violent mess I saw isn't it.AllMovieDecember 04, 2015
There are life-and-death moments for both people and animals. But there are also moments of great vividity, of tearing through the woods with a dog at your side and choosing difficult honor over expedient disgrace.Ex-Press.comNovember 16, 2015
Though littered with sentiment and family movie hokum, this story of a military dog suffering from post-traumatic stress finds the essence of true friendship, prompting uncontrolled saline leaks from the eyeball.
