War, Inc.

War, Inc.

How did a film like War, Inc. (which opens this weekend in limited release) go so wrong? It’s an ambitious film, a satire of foreign policy and war-torn nations under American corporate control. It’s also a complete mess, anchored by a usually respectable cast that includes John Cusack, Ben Kingsley, Marisa Tomei, and Joan Cusack. Oh, and Hilary Duff is in, too. With an Eastern European accent. Maybe that’s one big hint. I wanted to love it, and maybe it will find a cult following eventually, but consider yourself warned. They were obviously going for Dr. Strangelove-meets-Grosse Pointe Blank, and wound up with something more like Southland Tales.
