The critics agree: Max is max-nificent!
Nathanael Hood of The Young Folks raves, “It’s been a while since we’ve had an old fashioned boy-and-his-dog movie, hasn’t it? And with the recent release of Boaz Yakin’s Max (2015), it looks like we’ll have … a good one.”
The Patriot Ledger‘s Dana Barbuto calls the film “a stirring War Horse kind of story about a gallant military dog.”
The Philadelphia Inquirer‘s Molly Eichel gushes, “If you do not get weepy – well, I’ll just go ahead and say it – there’s something wrong with you.”
Margot Harrison of Seven Days believes Max is “a smarter and more complex film” than most.
Peter Canavese of Groucho Reviews says there’s “much in the way of artfulness” here.
