★★★★ review by Tyler Jacob on Letterboxd
Lacking the lovable nature of The Guard and the tightly-structured profundity of Calvary, War on Everyone isn't John Michael McDonagh strongest, but it damn well might be his funniest, with nonstop hilarious nonsequiters, a gorgeous and vivid visual style, and two awesome performances from Skarsgard and Peña.
★★★★ review by William Karlsson on Letterboxd
Surprisingly entertaining and funny. Michael Pena and Alexander Skarsgard have really good chemistry together. It's pretty much the weaker version of The Nice Guys, sort of
★★★★ review by Sergejs Timonins on Letterboxd
Gets even better on repeated viewings! I could understand that this humour is not for everyone, but... come on, people, as satyrical films go, this is one of the best (ever).
★★★★★ review by Lance on Letterboxd
Gives Pena and skarsgaard lots of space to have lots of fun
★★★½ review by Ghost Who Watches on Letterboxd
Now I know what a British film that transplants that crazy charm to another country looks like. Winds up with a good sprinkling of Coen magic dust by the time the credits role. Laughed in all the right spots & will definitely be worthy of a rewatch.
Big thanks to the masterful @anotherfilmnerd for the recommendation.
