War Machine: An absurdist war story for our times, writer-director David Michôd (Animal Kingdom) recreates a U.S. General's roller-coaster rise and fall as part reality, part savage parody - raising the specter of just where the line between them lies today. His is an exploration of a born leader's ultra-confident march right into the dark heart of folly. At the story's core is Brad Pitt's sly take on a successful, charismatic four-star general who leapt in like a rock star to command NATO forces in Afghanistan, only to be taken down by a journalist's no-holds-barred exposé.

The balanced blend of comedy and war drama was perfect. Add in a surreal performance by Brad Pitt and you've got a good satire. I enjoyed it.

Perfect example of how our politics get in the way of getting the job done. Well thought out and executed.

Brad Pitt does a good job of portraying really quirky characters. His performance on the quirk scale was almost as good as when he was in 12 Monkeys. The movie was written around his character, not the other way around like it usually is where the actor is there to support the story trying to be told and I think that's where it took a hit. Everything else happening was just white noise around his character. And the way it ended left me wondering if there was a part 2 I didn't know about. They brought in a pretty heavy hitting actor for the last 10 seconds of the movie, which just left me confused. Overall, worth a watch, especially if you like to see Pitt playing one of his off the beaten path characters, but it won't have a lasting memorable impact.

I am relieved to see that a handful of viewers "got" this film but as I feared and as I addressed in my "review" below (if it's accepted) a lot more did not and will not (unless they read my review LOL). Don't come looking for comedy or a serious war film or a division between the two which a lot of war films attempt. This is rock solid satire. It makes caricatures of career soldiers, politicians, foreign governments and the media both liberal and conservative. But the darkest under current is how it paints Americans with a generalized broad brush for falling for the BS that is fed to us by the shovelful every single day by every single administration and media outlet... how it speaks to our paralysis, our inability to bring genuine change to a beyond effed up political arena and it does so without ever, not once, addressing Americans in general. In my opinion that was brilliant. Another VERY misunderstood item is Pitt's performance. He is generally a great comedic actor, a soft, emotional, touching character when needed but here the demand was deadpan. Inflict NO feeling, NO emotion, NO love or hate - be unmoved. Does anyone know how HARD that is for actors who are instinctively emotional creatures? They can cry on the drop of dime, kiss a frog like they are sexually excited but ask them to show ZERO emotion? You might as well ask them to live a monogamous life, or work for free or move to Two Egg, FL. No, this was a difficult and stellar piece of old-fashioned deadpan comedy by Pitt. For a rock solid satire I give it 8/10.

Loved the message - hated Pitt. The most memorable part was Pitt jogging like young Forrest Gump, only with a stick up his... Very distracting. His accent was terrible, too. Weird Obama strut, too - like Huggy Bear. This was a ham-fisted attempt to say war begets bigger, longer, worse war because the presence of outsiders and the victims who die at their hands only serve to create more enemies. (and destroys the soldiers, themselves) Better films: Lord of War; War, Inc.; Eye in the Sky. I really wish America would stop sending warriors and weapons... that hasn't helped anyone but the war profiteer, and instead, send clean water systems, food and medicine. Friends and grateful people tend not to want to harm the ones helping them. And, the truth is, after all wars/violent conflicts... diplomacy and negotiation happen... so why not just skip the death and torture and destruction part... skip right to the helping out parts. 1/5

I started to watch this with the misconception that it would be at least partly funny. Yes their were a few funny moments like the scene were the general said, and I paraphrase: Turn that Fox off, we don't need to listen to a bunch of perverts screaming and yelling. I do think they did a good job portraying the hypocrisy of our recent wars on terrorism. 10 - 2 doesn't equal 8 is the frightening truth when it comes to insurgencies. How can you win a war when the people you are trying to save look at you as an invader? I guess killing all the civilians might work except I suspect that would only generate more hostility and breed more terrorist from sympathetic countries that didn't want us invading their friends. It would also cause our leaders to be war criminals in the eyes of the rest of the world. Good movie that makes you think hard at our endless wars in countries we have no business invading.

I wish that I could say this was a good movie, but honestly I'm not sure. It wasn't funny or action packed or even dramatic. It did have a couple it chuckle spot but that's it. It mainly left me scratching my head as to WHAT THE HELL I just spent 2 hours watching. Take this as a warning if you want, but it does kill 2 hrs of your life that you will "NEVER" get back.

Best part of the movie was 17:00 when I saw a Muslim Charlie Sheen.

Brad Pitt is a great actor. He never fails to entertain.. until now. Brad plays a widely heralded General. He is admired by all, a strategic genius, and so forth. There is a lot of voiceover narrative explaining how brilliantly amazing and regarded he is. I mean a LOT. But the character he portrays is none of this, leaving the narrative of the movie completely out of sync with the movie itself. Brad does a funny "grumbly" voice, makes goofy faces and expressions, and generally behaves like he is doing a poorly done SNL character. I mean, his left hand is in a claw for some inexplicable and undisclosed reason - outside of just to be a cartoon character. This might work if it was a comedy.. but it's not presented that way except in some subtle context. Overall it just comes off as really ..well...bad. Top this off with a script that literally does nothing. I mean.. it is mostly sitting and talking and Brad doing his awkward expressions as he pontificates the certain plot developments. Or, rather.. movie developments, as there doesn't seem to be an actual plot. To that note.. nothing happens, Brad's character is not entertaining - which means that unlike usual - Brad is not entertaining. I had to get up and walk around my living room a few times to stretch before I fell asleep. It is a boring (extremely boring) film which has only a thread of a plot, and relies on Brad's star power to be present on the screen at all times.. but it's not enough. 2/5 is the best I can give it. Brew some coffee if you want to get through it is all I can say.

I think this is Brad Pitts worst performance. Usually he does a great job at off beat characters but this portrayal didn't work well. Plus, the movie itself just didn't seem to have it's ACT together - not a war comedy, not a satire, even the dramas were forced or to thin. Kept waiting for a punch line or a gimmick or a twist or something a little meaty . . . but the end comes, the house lights come on and - nothing.

Thats how the army ROLLS, a very surreal portrayal & excellent acting by Pit.

WHY - When someone has money to spend - do they waste it on movies like this? Brad Pitt has brought certain movies to life. Unfortunately this movie was mummified and couldn't be revived - ever. To attempt comedy, especially of war, you need substance, action, drama and outstanding characters. This has none of those. The days of 'Kelly's Hero's' - one of the best tongue in cheek movies of its kind, are over! So (finally-thank God) is this movie. 2/5

Was that Russell Crowe @ the end ????

Brad Pitt's face went from rugged good looks to some sort of average looking 1950's milkman jamoke after his facelift. What a mistake.

I thought this was a good movie. Intelligent, informative and bleakly comical; it really brought home the extent to which we are just pissing in the wind over there. Pitt was channeling his character from Inglourious Basterds somewhat and may have missed the mark but I thought he was OK. It's just that he's principally a dramatic actor and is best when he's playing Brad Pitt, like in Fight Club for instance where he was excellent. His quirky characters only seem to work when they are complete idiots (True Romance, Burn After Reading), otherwise he comes across as false with laboured, contrived affectations and manerisms. I did love Russell Crowe's brief cameo at the end.

fell flat. i was really rooting for this one since it was actually somewhat honest about and critical of the wars.

I enjoyed it. Micro-spoiler alert: "10 minus 2 does not equal 8." Brutal undercurrents of truth under dependably procedural army routine played out by surreal characters to soften the punch.

besides the quite obvious over-acting by pitt, it was enjoyable regardless of topic, or odd faces pitt would make..it simply had a message..it didn't water down that yes, we tried doing good in the wrong way, pretty much in every war ever..it gave us two takes..one-the crap is pointless, and two-we won't change a damn thing.
