  • ★★★★ 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 Kim on Letterboxd

    The McDonagh Brothers are truly out here saving cinema

  • ★★★½ review by Matty Yay!! 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.
