“Robert Pattinson takes on his biggest, deepest role so far and shines brilliantly!” Patrick King, REEL BRIEF One of the more interesting aspects of living in southern California years ago were the televised police chases that broke into regularly televised programming on a nearly weekly basis.

Movie Review – “Megan Leavey”

“Easily, the best performance of the movie belongs to the German Shepherd “Rex”. His K9 bomb-sniffing training and bonding experience with Leavey leading up to Iraq is fascinating and suspenseful to watch.” – Patrick King, REEL BRIEF Feeling more like a Hallmark made-for-television movie than a Hollywood big-screen production, “Megan Leavey” offers up a real-life...
