Piercingly funny political satire with terrific cast is on view in this future-set story.

July 3, 2008
While its plot aligns War, Inc. with other, higher-profile action-thrillers, its political critique is more explicit and its ad campaign more oblique.
June 27, 2008
A film that confronts the absurdity and violence of modern warfare by taking it to the surreal and goofy next level.

For critics of the war with an appetite for red meat, War, Inc. will prove filling, if not quite completely nourishing.
June 15, 2008
A great political satire - a Dr. Strangelove for the YouTube generation
June 13, 2008
A sprawling folly, this uniquely hellish war film has almost breathtakingly impressive (and busy) production values and is anchored by a memorably complicated performance from John Cusack.

And yet, while even the most charitable viewer would be forced to consider "War Inc." to be a somewhat unfocused and undisciplined mess, there are still a lot of good things strewn throughout the wreckage.

The hilarious jokes and one-liners make take two viewings to fully absorb, but the movie also has an almost off-putting cynicism.

Cusack reminds audiences of one of his great films without quite making another one.

It's a lot more dystopian than I thought it would be, at times reminiscent of something as nutty as Brazil.
| Original Score: B+

This non-nihilistic film is a vision of our political complicity and humane potential.
May 23, 2008
It's a bewildering mix of very smart and very dumb, but the cast is tiptop.

Somehow, what starts as a series of cheap shots in a barrel develops into something more, thanks largely to warm, engaging performances by Cusack and Tomei. War, Inc. is both right-on and somehow off, but it gets points for trying.

May 23, 2008
Though it occasionally tries too hard, the fast-paced and sharply written War, Inc. is audacious and entertaining.

A wildly free-ranging satire [that] runs riot through a fistful of genre conventions.
