Yakin opts for bullets, explosions and blood vengeance when handcuffs and perp walks would do the job. Not that "Max" has any clear or coherent sense of mission.

Far too gung-ho about playing up the pup’s heroism and self-sacrifice to give it much time to develop.

A genial if somewhat old-fashioned tale that's too clunky to transcend its genre(s) but effective enough within its own limited emotional range.

The screenplay muddles its emotional core with a clunky cross between old-fashioned Hardy Boys mystery and a far-fetched weapons-trafficking subplot.
