“Civil War” Review

Civil War: Directed by Alex Garland. With Nick Offerman, Kirsten Dunst, Wagner Moura, Jefferson White. A journey across a dystopian future America, following a team of military-embedded journalists as they race against time to reach DC before rebel factions descend upon the White House.

The director of this film has done a few movies that are series thinking exercises, 28 Day later, Ex-Machina, Annihilation being among them, so when I heard he was doing a study on a possible future during the tail end of our next American Civil War AND it was being released through A24 I knew that we were going to be in for something good. I was very happy with the final product, it’s less of a study of the tensions that brought the country to the point of fighting itself and more of a look at how the story of war is sent back to the people that aren’t necessary involved and the sacrifices that are made to keep the generation public informed of what’s happening in their name. This is a bloody mess of an idea that works much better than how I’m explaining it and the acting, effects, and action are absolutely fantastic. A24 continues to impress me with their output.
