A fun and entertaining movie about a story so crazy it must be true. Teller and Hill are very good in their roles and the direction by Phillips is suitable. While the story is interesting and told in a quick and snappy fashion it never really engages emotionally which makes it quite forgettable. Still fun while you´re watching.
An enjoyable movie. Yeah it didn't deep dive into the morality or politics of The military industrial complex. That ain't the point. It's more pragmatic than that. It exists, these are the douches that are making money off it. Lot of the movie is dramatized but I don't go to see docudramas that are better served on HBO. I knew these type of kids growing up. Obsessed with scar face for all the wrong reasons
Saying 'based on a true story' means nothing. If some aspect of some part of the story is based on reality, then they can throw whatever crap in there that they like. Like the 'Triangle of Death'. Never happened. I read the source material too. That whole part was just absurd. Typical Hollywood BS.
