War Dogs Bekiffte Waffenhändler
Während des Irakkriegs führen die Kifferfreunde David und Efraim ein geruhsames Leben in Miami Beach. David hält sich als Masseur über Wasser, Efraim handelt im kleinen Rahmen mit Waffen. Als die beiden erfahren, dass die US-Regierung. War Dogs ist ein Film von Todd Phillips aus dem Jahr Das Drehbuch, das von Phillips, Jason Smilovic und Stephen Chin verfasst wurde, basiert auf. Wenn man allerdings der Komödie „War Dogs“ von Todd Phillips glauben darf, dann ließen auch kleinere Wirtschaftstreibende und zum Teil. Wie in „War Dogs“ verwendeten sie dazu eine Briefkastenfirma namens AEY, die Diveroli von seinem Vater übernommen hatte. Tatsächlich. Doch in der Komödie „War Dogs“ mit Jonah Hill und Miles Teller steckt ziemlich viel Wahrheit Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. David .
David spends his life savings on high-quality bedsheets to resell to retirement homes, but the venture fails.
Efraim explains that military equipment orders are posted on a public website, and their job is to bid for small orders ignored by larger contractors but still worth millions.
Local businessman Ralph Slutzky provides them funding, under the false belief that AEY only sells arms to protect Israel.
David and Efraim land a contract to provide several thousand Beretta pistols to the Iraqi Police in Baghdad , but an Italian embargo blocks the shipment, which is waylaid in Jordan.
Failing to deliver the cargo as promised would mean that AEY would be blacklisted from any future contracts. Meanwhile, Iz overhears the true nature of David's business.
David and Efraim fly to Jordan, bribing locals to release the shipment, and are provided with a driver to transport them and the shipment into Iraq.
The trio drive through the night, bribing a border patrol and evading armed insurgents, and arrive at the military base, where Captain Santos is impressed that they survived the Triangle of Death ; the two are paid handsomely.
AEY secures larger and more lucrative deals, expanding their operation, and David's daughter Ella is born, while Efraim grows more unstable and untrustworthy.
Facing a global shortage on AK ammunition, the duo encounter legendary arms dealer Henry Girard, who has access to massive unused weapon depots in Albania.
Efraim agrees, despite David's discomfort at working with a man on a terrorist watchlist. The two go to Albania to test the ammunition and win the contract, though Efraim learns they severely underbid their competitors.
Iz, frustrated with David's lies, leaves to live with her mother. Preparing the shipment in Albania, David discovers virtually all the rounds are Chinese-made and illegal due to a US embargo ; to conceal this, Efraim has the ammunition repackaged.
Henry retaliates by having David kidnapped, beaten, and threatened at gunpoint; David wonders if his missing Albanian driver, Bashkim, has been killed.
David learns Efraim did not pay Enver, the Albanian handling the repackaging. David returns to working as a massage therapist and convinces Iz to move back in with him, telling her the truth about AEY.
Weeks later, Efraim and Ralph offer David a paltry severance package, and David threatens Efraim with evidence of his falsified company documents.
Efraim is sentenced to four years in prison for numerous crimes related to conspiracy and fraud on the Afghan deal, while David gets seven months' house arrest for his cooperation.
David asks Henry about the events of the deal, including Bashkim's fate, but Henry offers him a briefcase of money in exchange for "no more questions.
Shooting was initially set to begin late April , in Miami , for several weeks. Warner Bros. War Dogs received mixed reviews from critics.
The website's critical consensus reads, " War Dogs rises on the strength of Jonah Hill's compelling performance to take a lightly entertaining look at troubling real-world events.
ScreenCrush's Matt Singer said, "Superficially, the movie looks a lot like past Phillips comedies about men behaving badly, with dirty jokes and wacky hijinks galore.
Ignatiy Vishnevetsky of The A. Club had misgivings about the film's slant and biographical omissions, writing: "One might quibble with the way Phillips limits responsibility on the Pentagon deal by painting AEY as better businessmen than they actually were [ From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

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'd still recommend it, just don't expect to be blown away. Sign In.
