War Dogs

Money, corruption and the American Dream


War Dogs
Two friends in their early 20s are living in Miami Beach during the Iraq War, and manage to 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. Then 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.

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconOverall, I enjoyed the flick that only goes to prove that when it comes to the U.S. government, you should never really be surprised by how much is paid and to whom.
