War Dogs (2016)
« on: April 12, 2017, 06:04:11 pm »

War Dogs is a decent flick that draws heavily from things we have already seen before. Sure, this is a True Story, but it can't be helped that you will point out other movies that have come before. Simply put, War Dogs is a cross between The Wolf of Wall Street and Scareface with a scene lifted directly from Goodfellas when they do the whole VO Narration at the end. Instead of Stocks and Drugs, we are entrenched right in the middle of the story of Gunrunners at the height of the Iraq War in which two guys somehow managed to swindle and con the US Government by awarding them a contract to supply munitions for the Afghan National Army worth approximately $300 million. Normally I would say these two characters types are idiots. But how can I call them that when they were able to so easily con the Army?

Both Jonah Hill and Miles Teller both do a good job in their respective roles. I gotta hand it to Jonah who is dedicated to his art and packs on the pounds. I really don't know how he does this for every other role and not run the risk of damaging his health. Small cameo by Bradley Cooper which I wasn't expecting. Anyway, decent flick as I mentioned. Worth a Rent at best. Interesting story that I never really heard in great detail til now.
