War Dogs Second Opinion Review - Forbes

Forbes: There are plenty of films about the follies of unrestrained capitalism, about the corruption of innocence at the hands of money and big business, or about the idea of war as a business that grinds up anyone in its path in the pursuit of profit. Some overlap one or all of these themes with each other, and the outcomes are sometimes insightful, painful looks into the drama and tragedy of it all, other times absurdist and satirically cynical revelations that still get to the drama and pain. Yet there’s an increasingly common approach that translates these sorts of narratives into simplistic, cookie-cutter entertainment posing as thoughtful artistic enterprise, despite even the hard work of many of those involved in the production. War Dogs, a true story of two young men who become arms dealers and engage in widespread fraud and corruption along the way, sadly falls into the latter camp.

The story is too old to be commented.
