This sharp and witty political satire may be remembered as Hilary Duff's finest hour a decade from now, but most viewers will be occupied and intrigued by John Cusak's return to material that was so brilliantly spun in Grosse Point Blank. Though lacking the subtlety of the earlier film this movie has its moments and what priceless moments they are. Don't let anyone spoil this one for you and watch it with as open a mind as possible. Enjoy!

Being a followup to the excellent Grosse Pointe Blank, I had high hopes for this, but was let down by it over and over again. The nut of the problem was that it kept falling back to overtly political attempts at comedy. Some of it worked, but mostly when this movie ventured into the period political it was both unfunny and unpersuasive.

Three stars because there is 60% of a good movie here. The performances were decent, the parts that focus on character development are solid, and production values were pretty good (some below par set/effects work).

Ultimately, though, yet another potentially great movie ruined by the Bush era and the repeated, failed and painful (to watch) efforts of Hollywood make a movie that is both good art/entertainment and really, really against Bush and his administration.

Slow moving action movie with a wilting plot. John Cusack plays the leading role of an OTG officer on the make in the Sand Box.

...Smash mouth in that it doesn't try to be aubtle or discreet in its brutal assault on American foreign policy or consumerism in the world today. If you can get past its blatant attempts to punish America for its many shortcomings, it is a slightly entertaining story. Guy has unusual job, meets girl of his future, meets other girl who makes him react funny, and has a life changing series of moments. You also witness a haunted past from our Protaganist, and an antagonist you didn't even know existed at the beginning of film. The humor is there but its very dry and on its head.

This movie has basically the same plot as Gross Pointe Blank. I would say it's not quite as goof, but still good. If you liked GPB you'll like War, inc.

Liberal propaganda alert! Blatant misrepresentation of what is really going on in the world, but it does make some fair points on occasion. I bought this for John Cusack basically reprising his role from Grosse Pointe Blank, not for his politics. It's not a great movie, but it has memorable moments from some great actors and is a good example of a modern-day satire.

Let me say it's only worth the rental fee on this film. Some actors just have to make a film to keep themselves busy, this would be the one.

The picture and sound quality are good. The movie itself is decent. It's your typical Hollywood liberal propaganda, so it's obviously biased and not quite accurate.
