Two friends in their early 20s (Hill and Teller) living in Miami Beach during the Iraq War exploit a little-known government initiative that allows small businesses to bid on U.S. Military contracts. Starting small, they begin raking in big money and are living the high life. But the pair gets in over their heads when they land a 300 million dollar deal to arm the Afghan Military - a deal that puts them in business with some very shady people, not the least of which turns out to be the U.S. Government.

User Review



Just got to watch this movie on the pre-screening. It is so good, that I wonder if I somehow can pay for the tickets? Everything is good about this movie: story, acting, camera, humor. I was glad to see the director getting over the Hangovers and doing something different for a change. To me it is definitely a step up for Phillips. Two hours went by so fast that ending seemed to be a bit rushed, but I have to trust that that how the original story went. It is not an instant classic of the Revenant proportions, but if the subject is appealing to you at all - it is worth watching. The voting is not yet enabled, but when it will be I give this title 8 out of 10.
