War On Everyone (2016)

IMG_2408

John Michael McDonagh directs Alexander Skarsgård, Michael Peña and Tessa Thompson in this meta buddy cop comedy about two bad badges who are almost wilfully corrupt. 

A perfectly passable bit of pop nihilism. But it is not a patch on McDonagh’s The Guard or Calvary. In fact, there’s not nearly enough laughs or transgressions to cover up just how unlikeable everyone is or how purposely trite it becomes. Still the costume designer puts in a full shift, as the suits and outfits are impeccable.
