Keleigh Sperry and Jessica Szohr at ‘War Dogs’ Premiere in L.A.
I had high hopes for “War Dogs,” which goes into wide release later this weekend, but after reading a few reviews, I’m left somewhat disappointed. It appears expectations were high when you consider Jonah Hill’s hot-streak over the past few years, so the film might not exactly be a home run at the box-office, but considering the $50 million budget, it doesn’t need to be in order to make a decent return.
Here’s a snippet from Alonso Duralde @ The Wrap:
This alleged comedy becomes such a drag that you find yourself noticing the exceedingly lazy song choices (between “War Dogs” and “Suicide Squad,” it’s clear someone at Warner Bros. is listening to too much oldies FM) and the lackadaisical cinematography (by Lawrence Sher, also of the “Hangover” films) that makes Miami Beach in the summer look as murky as January in Albania.
Check the plot & trailer below:
Based on the true story of two young men, David Packouz and Efraim Diveroli, who won a $300 million contract from the Pentagon to arm America’s allies in Afghanistan. IMDb
