Storyline

Bob Bolano and Terry Monroe are two crooked Albuquerque PD detectives. They tend to hustle criminals but their methods have landed them in hot water with their boss, and they are on their last warning. They get wind of a heist and decide to muscle in on the action, robbing the perpetrators. Unfortunately for them, the mastermind of the heist is someone out of their league, someone they would do well to fear. Written by grantss

Goofs

As he is walking across the street, Bob pulls out his pistol and racks the slide. This would either eject the round in the chamber, which it does not appear to do, or load a cartridge. In any case, a police officer would always carry his firearm loaded, and would never need to do such a thing. See more »

Quotes

Terry Monroe: Hey Bob, what's the plan for finding Reggie? It's going to be tough tracking him down without anything to go on. Isn't it?
Bob Bolaño: Well, he's black. How many fucking black people do you think there are in Iceland? We'll just stand around here and keep our eyes open.
Terry Monroe: That's not much of a plan, Bob. You don't think we should...
Bob Bolaño: There he is.

Don't waste your time.
13 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

The trouble with John Michael McDonagh is that he's not half as clever as he thinks he is or that he would like us to think he is. If he was really smart he wouldn't be making pretentious crap like "War on Everyone". This should have been just another buddy cop movie with a lineage that goes all the way back to the seventies but that would have been too common-place for a man like McDonagh, the much less talented brother of playwright and filmmaker Martin McDonagh.

"War on Everyone" is a semi-serious, name-dropping, (from feminism, the classics, literature, the movies, popular music; the kind of things 'smart' people are supposed to know about), buddy movie, all done in the worst possible taste which isn't a problem in itself; I love bad taste when it's funny but this just isn't funny. On the plus side, the ridiculously handsome Alexander Skarsgard, (son of Stellan), who plays one half of our pair of anti-heroes, shows that given a half decent script he might even be able to deliver the goods. Otherwise, that's about it. Don't waste your time.
