War On Everyone (2016) Review

Rating: 8/10

War On Everyone is the black comedy written and directed by John Michael McDonagh (Calvary).

Alexander Skarsgård and Michael Peña are a 2ecaa4d200e2a3234ab2ebc5453cada8
great cop team, who have forgotten their civic duty and are involved in all sorts of adventures, some of which are not really listed in their job description.

3907This movie is so good, I just want everyone to watch it. Like my friend Ames said, it’s like Deadpool has become a cop (and never lost his chiselled features I would add) and it works brilliantly.

The setting is Abuquerque, but it doesn’t feel as claustrophobic and far away from the rest of the world as US desert movies usually do, and the cinematography it’s not the usual thriller-grey tone, which I quite liked.

I don’t wanna repeat myself on Alexander Skarsgård, but he is gooooood! Him and Michael Peña make a wicked couple and the chemistry they have make you wish for thwar-on-everyone-john-michael-mcdonagh-201606741-2is to become a series. This is a pledge actually, let this become a series. Seriously.

War on Everyone, also starring Theo James, Tessa Thompson and Caleb Landry Jones. Music by Lorne Balfe: cinematography by Bobby Bukowski.
