Forgettable tale with cute kids, gallant dog; some violence.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Max 2: White House Hero is the second Max movie, the first of which told the story of a brave military dog. It's the same dog character, but none of the human characters or situations is in any way related to those in the first film. Heroic Max is now in the employ of the U.S. Secret Service and called upon for a special assignment at the White House during negotiations for a Russia-U.S.A. nuclear arms treaty. It's about a gallant dog, two 12-year-old offspring of world leaders, spies, and a gathering of bumbling adults. Several sequences find both the dog and the kids in physical danger (spoiler alerts): kidnapping attempts by masked hoodlums, a near drowning in river rapids, children held captive, several narrow escapes, and lots of brave dog action. There also are some sad moments when the kids are forcibly separated from their canine friend. This is not suitable for kids who aren't comfortable with reveal vs. imaginary violence.
