A decent war comedy from the guy that brought us the Hangover trilogy. Teller and Hill are a solid duo, the tone of the film is light and slightly frivolous (though the story is based on true events) and the film never drags, even though it's close to 2 hours long. Some good fun, though not very memorable and far from a classic.

I'll never understand why anyone would want to mix the silliness of a comic book universe with the dreariness of 70s arthouse drama, but this film is one big failure from start to finish. Phoenix is atrocious, the drama is exponential, the score is cheap and the social critique flat as a pancake. This makes me nostalgic for Nolan's Batman, which I also disliked with a vengeance.
