“War Inc.” is already an underground cult classic and will likely remain so for years to come. The film is not without its shortcomings – at times it is confusing and drags – but its faults are significantly overshadowed by its many strengths. It also accomplishes the difficult feat of being very entertaining and funny, while delivering a powerful punch of truth. “War, Inc.” is a movie that deserves a much wider viewing than the barons of the film industry are likely to give it. But by filling the theaters in the opening days, people can send a powerful message that there is – and must be – a market for films of conscience.
