[5.50/10] War Machine (2017)

War Machine (2017)

Quick Review: Neither all that witty to be a proper satire, nor profound enough to be taken seriously as a fact-based war flick, "War Machine" struggles to find the perfect balance between important and comical as much as Pitt does to make up his mind whether he wants to portray a caricature, or an eccentric general. Yet, he still carries the movie along, being front and center, and bringing some sharpness of the very uneven story, at least till everything gets too serious towards the end.

Maybe they were hoping for another Inglorious Basterds?

Yeah, maybe our expectations were a little too high.
