Film review: ‘War Dogs’ ★★

Raucous entertainment and early promise inevitably succumbs to drab predictability in Todd Phillips’ War Dogs. Based on the true story of David Packouz (Miles Teller) and Efraim Diveroli (Jonah Hill), two twentysomething friends who bluffed their way into a multi-million dollar Pentagon contract and were subsequently arrested by the FBI, here we have a film that is The Wolf of Wall Street with AK47s and a hundred million rounds of ammo rather than shoddy stocks and bonds.
