Consensus: War on Everyone boasts just enough dark humor and infectious energy to make this somewhat middling entry from writer-director John Michael McDonagh an entertaining diversion.

Entertainment Weekly

Crass, senseless, and relentlessly talky, War on Everyone mostly seems like a movie at war with itself.

Mr. McDonagh's palette and spleen remain mostly intact, but here he's neglected to include a story or point.

So hackneyed, tired, labored and overstuffed with contempt not only for all of its targets but also its own self that one gets the feeling that the talented Mr. McDonagh has gone mad with rage.

Los Angeles Times

A fast and ferocious pileup of highbrow allusions and lowbrow insults, shoehorned in between intense episodes of coke-snorting and head-smashing.

This is a really bad cop movie, maybe the funniest ever.

If this is still your bag all these years later and you wish the 1990s had never ended, however, then everyone wins.

One day, perhaps, murderously corrupt police officers will once again be a viable source of comedy. At this particular historical moment, however, a movie like War On Everyone has its work cut out for it.

The mockery it makes of our corrupt law enforcement agencies is the mockery those agencies make of America itself.

Dark comedy and a throwback to the mismatched buddie cop films that Hollywood did so well. The film has a very mixed reception but I thought this film was… More
