The Men Who Stare at Goats

NO GOATS. NO GLORY.

menwhostareatgoatsAfter flying to Kuwait to report on the Iraq War, journalist Bob Wilton (Ewan McGregor) meets a retired Army operator (George Clooney) who’s been trained in parapsychological skills. You really want to love this film, but it squanders a good opportunity. Loosely based on an actual military initiative, the script chronicles the creation of a “New Earth Army” within the U.S. Army while also following McGregor and Clooney’s misadventures in Iraq. The latter (and Kevin Spacey) are standouts in the cast, but this is never as funny as you’d like. The last half-hour just drops the ball entirely.
