Consensus: War, Inc. attempts to satirize the military industrial complex, but more often than not it misses its target.

Aaron Hillis
Village Voice

War, Inc. squanders some top-tier talent (Marisa Tomei, Sir Ben Kingsley) as well as our patience.

Only occasionally hits the target.

This absurdist political farce has its moments but requires a deft touch for satire ... perhaps no one could have made the uneven script work.

This John Cusack-driven exercise in scorched-earth political comedy is neither as dark nor as timely as intended, and certainly not as funny.

For critics of the war with an appetite for red meat, War, Inc. will prove filling, if not quite completely nourishing.

Urban Cinefile

Sophisticated political satire, ridiculous farce, black humour, spoof, intellectual game playing and comic invention

Joe Leydon
Houston Chronicle

Despite flashes of comic inspiration and an abundance of anything-goes boldness, this well-intentioned but wobbly satire is a chaotic free-fire zone.

Seattle Times

A sprawling folly, this uniquely hellish war film has almost breathtakingly impressive (and busy) production values and is anchored by a memorably complicated performance from John Cusack.

It's as if the movie is stuck in a muddy middle, unable to go whole hog with its sending up of toxic Americana and unwilling to be serious about exploring how toxic it really is.

John Cusack returns to Grosse Pointe but this time in iraq i mean turkestan. A funny movie, well acted, but not as good as some of Cusacks other work.

I did think it was funny in a low budget sort of way, but it is nowhere as good as Grosse Point Blank. John Cusack and Marisa Tomei were good, but Hilary… More
