War Dogs

You know how I've been decrying the state of modern mainstream cinema? My main despair is rooted in the lack of originality in the hackneyed and rehashed stories? Well, I think War Dogs presented a solution to that, and that solution is to find stranger than fiction true stories hidden in unlikely and unknown worlds. This was such a fascinating story, made all the more better by a pair of strong performances from our leads.

War Dogs stars Miles Teller and Jonah Hill who find a little known backwards way into supplying defense contracts for the US Pentagon. As they get in deeper and deeper, the orders grow larger, the money grows substantially, the legality lessens, and they are soon in over their heads. It maybe doesn't sound like a whole lot, but the rabbit hole does go down pretty far, and twists quite a bit on its way.

And I was saying before, solid work from our boys. This is right up there with anything that's earned Jonah Hill an Oscar nomination (further proving those were not flukes) and Teller keeps right up with him.

I don't really know that there's a whole lot more to say, other than I was surprised and impressed. Certainly something right up my alley
