“Max 2: White House Hero” is a howling good movie! Safe for the family and one in which two kids become the heroes, the film features likeable actors, a neat dog in Max, the canine police dog, and a plot that includes foreign spies and the son of the president of the U.S. hobnobbing with the daughter of the Russian premiere. Security is such that the cook at the White House tells young T.J., the President’s son, that even the “grapes are x-rayed” when they arrive!
Young T.J. Bennett (Zane Austin) is bored, as he wants to hang with friends from school—that is, if he had any. But because he lives in a proverbial fish bowl (the White House) his best friend soon becomes the security dog Max. When T.J. meets the Russian president’s daughter, Alexandra, “Alex” (Francesca Angelucci Capaldi), they hit it off. He may have found a friend and adventure buddy. When T.J. is almost kidnapped, the two kids realize a plot may be planned to wreck the nuclear arms talks between T.J.’s dad, President Blake Bennett (Lochlyn Munro) and Russian President Bragov (Andrew Kavadas). Filled with adventure and humor, the entire family will enjoy “Max 2: White House Hero.” We are pleased to award it our Dove Family-Approved Seal for all ages. After watching this movie, we are sure you will agree—who wouldn’t want to own a dog like Max? And the president’s comment to T.J. is a great message: “We may be the First Family, but we need to be a family first.”
