About the Movie

Recreating his role as a hitman, John Cusack gives a hilarious performance in War Inc., a politically charged action satire set in Turaqistan, a country occupied by an American private corporation run by a former U.S. Vice President (Dan Aykroyd). In an effort to monopolize the opportunities the war-torn nation offers, the corporation's CEO hires Hauser (Cusack) to kill a Middle Eastern oil minister. Now struggling with his own growing demons the assassin must poseas the corporation’s Trade Show Producer in order to pull off this latest hit while maintaining his cover by organizing the high-profile wedding of Yonica Babyyeah (Hilary Duff), an outrageous Central Asian pop star, and keeping a sexy left-wing reporter (Marisa Tomei) in check.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: An overbearing lampoon of American war profiteering -- a comedy so leaden it could make a liberal hate liberal Hollywood. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Nov 6, 2009

Rotten: War, Inc. squanders some top-tier talent (Marisa Tomei, Sir Ben Kingsley) as well as our patience. – Aaron Hillis, Village Voice, Dec 9, 2008

Rotten: Like the smart weapon technology it mocks, War, Inc. aims at the right targets but misfires so severely that even the clever details get obliterated in the resulting mess. – Reyhan Harmanci, San Francisco Chronicle, Jul 24, 2008

Rotten: War, Inc. fires off dozens of lethal dialogue squibs like 'War is the improvement of investments using other means,' but it doesn't connect them into anything that can truly rattle an audience's complacency. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Nov 24, 2011

Good acting and so-so satire

Whether you'd enjoy this movie comes down to whether you like John Cusak and Marissa Tomei. If you're fans, you'll probably enjoy it. Their characters are interesting and they have nice chemistry together. The problem with the movie is that it's obviously supposed to be a biting political satire, but Dr. Strangelove it isn't. It has some good ideas, but it didn't feel like the director knew what to do with them, because they have no impact or emotion. It's directed like an SNL skit. Aside from Cusak and Tomei, who are fun to watch, Hillarry Duff is surprisingly good, although viewer discretion is advised with her "tarantula" scene. This isn't the classic comedy it could have been Kubrik had made it, but you still might enjoy it for the good casting.

Great Satire

very well done!
