Storyline

A.X.L. is a top-secret, robotic dog created by the military to help protect tomorrow's soldiers. Code named by the scientists who created him, A.X.L. stands for Attack, Exploration, Logistics, and embodies the most advanced, next-generation artificial intelligence. After an experiment gone wrong, A.X.L. is discovered hiding alone in the desert by a kind-hearted outsider named Miles (Alex Neustaedter), who finds a way to connect with him after activating his owner-pairing technology. Together, the two develop a special friendship based on trust, loyalty and compassion. Helping Miles gain the confidence he's been lacking, A.X.L. will go to any length to protect his new companion, including facing off against the scientists who created him and who will do anything to get him back. Knowing what is at stake if A.X.L. is captured, Miles teams up with a smart, resourceful ally named Sara (Becky G) to protect his new best friend on a timeless, epic adventure for the whole family.

Great idea ( not new) idea
25 August 2018 | by mariob-47307See all my reviews

I can honestly tell you this evening has laughs and scares and touching moments. It's a great idea in concept but severely lacking in execution and acting as well. This is coming from a person who loves Thomas Jane from the original Punisher that I enjoyed so much! Other actors including Tom Jane we're not as vibrant as they should have been during such a process or we're just not even Force but laissez-faire to the point where it made it kind of lacking that's where the idea of the story I mean essentially Homeward Bound it's an okay movie if you're taking your kids and you just doing a family day then it's perfect you'll have a whole different perspective on it but for an adult who seems tough like this before it becomes very repetitive and a district particular Point not as interesting as it should have been
