This Netflix original film, based on the Michael Hastings fact-based novel about the U.S. military’s post 9/11 action in Afghanistan, stars Brad Pitt as General Stanley McChrystal, the leader forced to resign in 2010 following a controversial Rolling Stone article in which he sharply criticized Vice President Joe Biden and other high ranking officials. The film is intended to be comic satire and is loaded with a big name cast (Tilda Swinton, Ben Kingsley, Anthony Michael Hall) but it is just weird, boring, and embarrassingly bad, made even worse by Pitt’s horrendous cartoonish accent. This one is a major miss.
