A mighty chaotic mess of a film; wildly uneven tones veer from comedy to violent action to drama to slapstick and none of it is very interesting. It's like a sequel to Grosse Pointe Blank with no style or wit and the performances by Ben Kingsley and Hilary Duff are embarrassing. Final Grade: C-

"War, Inc" by Yojimbo

In the near future corporations rule the world rather than nation states and disputes are settled by a heavily armed "arbitrator" played by John Cusack. The combination of black comedy and extreme violence and the presence of the Cusacks and Dan Aykroyd will be familiar to anyone who has seen Grosse Point Blank. It's essentially a political satire, Turekistan being an obvious analogy for the events in the middle east; a kind of "Thank You For Smoking Guns". As political satire it has all the subtlety of a scud launcher, some of the physical comedy bordering on Zucker/Abrams territory, but it also has enough smart, witty and well observed dialogue to offend "patriots" everywhere and no doubt get everyone involved on the NSA's shitlist.

Not as good as it could have been

I was pretty disappointed in this movie. I went into it with high hopes that it would be a biting satire of the modern day mercenary practices being utilized by the US in the war in Iraq but it merely had a war funded by a mega-corporation as the backdrop to an otherwise unremarkable script.

It wasn't actively bad writing. It had some twists, some intrique, and some surprises but it was wholly unremarkable. I give John Cusack and his cohorts credit for a decent script set in a very interesting and fresh setting. This feel could have been more exciting if it played on the underlying setting instead of leaving the 'corporate war' 'mercenary' idea to play as the background. Nothing risked, nothing gained.

An ok movie, but nothing spectacular. Did not live up to my expectations.
