Desiring an additional source of income, David spends his life savings on high-quality Egyptian cotton sheets, planning to sell them to Miami retirement homes, but this venture fails to produce results. At a funeral for a friend, David runs into his high school best friend Efraim Diveroli, who had moved to Los Angeles some years prior to work with his uncle selling guns. Efraim has left his uncle and formed his own company, AEY, which fills orders for arms placed by the US government due to the ongoing war in Iraq. David’s life takes another turn when his girlfriend informs him that she is pregnant. Efraim offers him a job at AEY, and even though David and Iz both vehemently oppose the war, David eventually agrees, telling his girlfriend that he has begun selling his cotton sheets to the US government through Efraim’s contacts.
Plot: Based on the true story of two young men, David Packouz and Efraim Diveroli, who won a $300 million contract from the Pentagon to arm America’s allies in Afghanistan.

It’s good. Better than “fine” but not “great”.
Right off the bat the best part of this movie is the acting: Teller and Hill have great chemistry on screen. Jonah does a particularly good job at playing the “guy you love to hate”. I can’t attest to the faithfulness of their portrayal of the real life people since I don’t know anything about them. The rest of the cast does a great job as well.
The marketing for this movie was, unfortunately, deceitful: the trailer made it out to be this upbeat, funny, over the top comedy – which it’s not. In reality the movie has a much slower pace, not a lot of situational humor and is certainly not filled with hilarious quips (the bulk of which are in the trailer). This is not to say that the movie was bad or not at all funny, it just wasn’t what I expected (and I am sure I’m not alone).
My final critique will go unnoticed for the majority of viewers but I found it personally offensive so I have to report it: some of the movie takes place in Albania, only the set for Albania is actually Romania. Which is fine, I understand that they probably did this for practical reasons and as a Romanian movie goer I just have to accept it (we all recognized it immediately though). However, at some point in the movie an “Albanian” woman says something, only she says it in Romanian. This may not seem like much but it totally took me out of the movie and ruined the experience for me. I find it completely unacceptable that they could not hire an Albanian to say those few lines. The two languages might seem interchangeable to the rest of the world, I am sure, but that was very much NOT the case for me and everyone else in the theater.
I am a paying movie goer as well and I expect to be just as entertained as everyone else. This is, of course, not the first time that I’ve seen this in a film. But when a producer does something like this it shows me that they don’t respect their movie, so they can’t expect me to.
My rating, however, is not based on this final bit of criticism. I gave it a 7/10 for slow pacing and lack of humor, which is the opposite of what I expected.
I’d still recommend it, just don’t expect to be blown away.
After watching it for a second time I decided to change my original rating from 7/10 to 8/10, mainly because the acting is just great and I respect the fact that the movie made me think about it and made me want to see it again.
Non politically correct, has warts and all. Watching War Dogs is like watching a train wreck. You know the train wreck is going to happen, you just cannot help watch the wreck out of a morbid curiosity. War Dogs has stereotypes, ugly characters, and even nastier real life experiences. War Dogs is a buddy story of, David Packouz and Efraim Diveroli. When someone has a friend who a bad influence you know there is going to be trouble. No matter what the good intentions are you know the bad influence can not help but be himself. Everyone looks bad in War Dogs, governments, people and arms dealers. I felt the slime just ooze out! The moral message of easy money with fast people comes with a price hits hard! A good moral in of family/wife over money. War Dogs is directed at a fast pace, which transitions from sub story to sub story well. The Packouz/Diveroli characters create a synergy which drives a character driven story about decidence and greed. 7 out of 10
