I got to be honest and say that from just watching the trailer, I assumed this film would be emotional roller coaster from start to finish. Although this film is a great story about two broken war heroes, it was not as emotional as I had hoped. Kate Mara gives a solid performance about a girl who had to deal with all sorts of personal demons, on top of the effects of being in a war. For anyone who love animals, especially dogs, this story really showcases the importance of their training and the bond we can have with them.
