Brand Hauser is a hitman who gets hired by the former Vice President of the US to go to Turaqistan where he needs to kill the Minister of Oil. As cover, he’s supposed to be the organiser of a trade convention where the highlight will be the marriage of a local pop starlet but he soon finds out that this cover is demanding more from him than expected.
Sound and Vision:
The image has some bright and shiny scenes and we didn’t spot any compression errors. The level of detail is sufficient but not extreme. The contrast is good and the only minor flaw we spotted were some shaking lines in the screen here and there.
The sound is pretty standard with some decent use of the surround speakers and subwoofer for effect while dialogues are clear and understandable at all times.
War Inc has everything to be a great policital satire with John Cusack in the lead role and plenty of possibilities for good comedy. Unfortunately we get a boring piece of work that will earn you a medal if you manage to watch it entirely. There’s little to laugh about, the jokes are boring, the actors seem to have taken some tranquillizers and the pace is so slow that you wonder when something will actually happen.
War Inc has potential in writing but what gets delivered on screen is plain dullness
