Critic Reviews of "Megan Leavey"
Rolling StoneJune 19, 2017
Kate Mara is raw and riveting in the title role, a marine who ends up in combat in Iraq with a bomb-sniffing German shepherd. It's a true story that earns your tears.
NPRJune 15, 2017
Director Gabriela Cowperthwaite's spare handheld camera work comes into its own once the canine teams are out in the field.
Newark Star-LedgerJune 09, 2017
"Megan Leavey" isn't a big, or particularly surprising picture; it sketches out a simple story and then, reliably delivers.
Entertainment WeeklyJune 09, 2017
If you're looking for a good cry, Megan Leavey gets the job done, I suppose. But it's a bit like a wet kiss from a puppy.
Globe and MailJune 09, 2017
The film - the feature directorial debut for Gabriela Cowperthwaite, whose orcas-in-peril documentary, Blackfish, struck a nerve - treats the handler/dog relationship with respect, not cheap sensationalism.
New York ObserverJune 09, 2017

St. Anthony MessengerJuly 28, 2017
Straightforward and deeply moving.
Splice TodayJuly 07, 2017
Comes across as bait for Upworthy.com, but the film is eventually quite touching affecting
ChrisStuckmann.comJuly 06, 2017
A heartfelt and touching film featuring one of Kate Mara's best performances.
Killer Movie ReviewsJuly 05, 2017
... bluntly, and brilliantly, defies convention on many fronts, including the cardinal rule: make the protagonists cuddly.
Film InquiryJune 26, 2017
Megan Leavey ultimately nails a few moments you weren't expecting it to, almost making up for its lack of focus and unwillingness to commit to its main storyline.
Flick FilosopherJune 23, 2017
This deeply satisfying military drama demonstrates that a simple, even familiar story can be powerfully effective when told with big heart and solid craft.
