While Shane Black’s “The Nice Guys” was a fun R-rated buddy-cop comedy, it has been criticised for playing it surprisingly safe with its humor compared to some of Black’s previous work. That’s not the case with “The Guard” and “Calvary” director John Michael McDonagh’s “War On Everyone” which smashes down boundaries with its dark, edgy laughs judging by reviews out of several film festivals where it has screened.
Alexander Skarsgard and Michael Pena play two corrupt New Mexico cops who’re up to not good. Tessa Thompson and Theo James are also onboard the film which just scored a red-band trailer and opens September 30th in the UK. Saban Films is slated to open it later in the United States.
