War, Inc. – NetFlix Rental

I’m a big fan of John Cusack. He’s made many entertaining and some very good movies during his career. I loved Grosse Point Blank, High Fidelity, and a few others. War, Inc. will not be on my list of good John Cusack movies. It’s really a mess of a movie.

I’d bet the script read great. You can definitely see what the intent was, but the execution was terrible. Marisa Tomei is wasted in what could have been a fun role as a journalist covering a totally “outsourced” war. The US government privatized an entire war – that’s the premise. It’s got promise as a premise, but it’s a premise that promised more than it could deliver in the hands of this director. (Sorry for that – just couldn’t resist.) Dan Akroyd was also wasted as a corrupt former Vice President running the show.

Don’t waste ytour time with War, Inc.
