Max movie quotes tell the story of a military dog grieves alongside the family of his handler, who was killed in action. The adventure drama was written by Boaz Yakin, who also directed, and Sheldon Lettich. Max opened in theaters on June 26, 2015.

In Max, Kyle Wincott (Robbie Amell) is serving in Afghanistan along with his military dog, Max, a Belgian Malinois. But when Kyle is killed in action, Max is retired and left in a military kennel. Kyle's family, including mother Pamela (Lauren Graham), father Ray (Thomas Haden Church) and younger brother Justin (Josh Wiggins), decide to adopt Max, despite his unfriendly demeanor.

Max helps the family grieve the loss of Kyle, while dealing with his own post-traumatic stress from battle. Youngest son Justin bonds quickly with the dog, which proves beneficial when Kyle's friend Tyler (Luke Kleintank) arrives to pay his respects and Ray leaves suddenly, sending Justin and Max on an adventure to find Tyler and Ray.

Max is sure to bring the tears when it opens alongside other films such as Ted 2, Inside Out, Jurassic World and The Overnight.
