Lords of War
Verified purchase
This is a dark biographical comedy from the director of The Hangover films about 2 ordinary guys who by pure luck, tenacity and being in the right place at the right time won a $300 million contract to supply arms to the US government. Obviously being a film about international arms dealing it has it's darker moments as well as the lighter. Both leads were pretty decent, it was a good story that discusses the moral implications of what they were doing to make their fortune but it doesn't quite delve far enough. I thought the subject was tackled better in Lord of War which must be over 10 years old now, the opening of that film was both gripping and shocking, it had a message and had me hooked straight away. War Dogs had a memorable soundtrack and was worth a one off watch but not one I would go back to

Based on real article - believable enough
Verified purchase
Enough action, interest, development and changes of scene/country - I enjoyed watching all of it and became engaged. Slightly unlikely that such immature (in some ways) lads would progress as far as they did, but perhaps that is how it was in reality.
Reasonable level of excitement; attractive love interest woman, fair number of different characters introduced. I'm glad I chose it for an evening's entertainment.
The twists in the relationship between the two 'friends' ensure viewers' interest is even more sustained; we have to regularly review the level of reward vs toxicity of the 'friendship', and this kept me focused.
The greedy dream in many of us of making huge amounts of money adds to the 'wow' factor of events.
There is even a simple and fairly obvious lesson to be learnt from the entire escapade.

Unoriginal, unfunny and predictable
Verified purchase
Remember how they saw Brad Pitt killing Nazis in Inglorious Bastards, thought "wow we can milk this", and made a vastly inferior movie about, well, Brad Pitt killing Nazis (Fury)??
Same deal here, but with Jonah Hill playing a fat degenerate in The Wolf of Wall Street instead of Brad Pitt killing Nazis. Save yourselves two hours.

Pretty Good Horror Show
Verified purchase
My favorite part of this re-telling is that the story elements you think are sensationalized for the theater are the accurate parts, and the elements that seem the most mundane and realistic are the fabricated parts for story-flow. The casting is pretty good too. What they left out was all the headaches, vomiting, diarrhea, ulcers, advanced aging, and hair loss that physically ruined everyone involved. Not to mention a few key players. A great movie, whether you see it as total fiction or based on real life.

AEY - Amazing Evening Yawn
Verified purchase
An entertaining introduction to the world of military telemarketing quickly turned into a humungous painful turd wish I was taking instead of watching. Apparently women can't be relevant, Miles Teller has the charisma of a plank of wood and Jonah Hill is the only member of the cast capable of delivering any entertainment.

Thank god he gets to keep his penthouse whilst handing out happy endings for fun?

Overall a £50 million, adult lullaby. With guns.

Very good film
Verified purchase
Based on true events this makes it perhaps a more interesting watch. As you'd expect with Jonah Hill involved, there's a certain amount of tongue in cheek humour but the rest of the film is pretty serious. If you're a fan of both actors then this is definitely worth a watch, both playing really good parts and Jonah is in a different role than usual, often very serious and at times, almost cruel. There's also a morality tale to it to finish things off.

Based on True Events
Verified purchase
As this is based on true events I found this interesting and entertaining. I appreciate there's probably quite a lot of artistic creativity to make it more enjoyable for the viewer but nevertheless I liked the unraveling of the story, gorgeous beach scene and stunning views from the apartment and anything with Bradley Cooper is good to watch. It's not a hard plot to follow and the characters were believable enough.
