Surprisingly subdued but entertaining dramedy centered around the Afghan conflict. Tina Fey is Kim Baker, an ambitious reporter embedded in a land where cultures clash and new lives are forged as easily as they are lost.

The movie's strengths are multitude but it really does an excellent job of showing how ambition unrestrained can bear heavy costs if not kept in check while simultane... read more

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but the title was promising and since there was a decent cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, to be honest, I was rather surprised by how underwhelming the damned thing actually turned out to be after all. Indeed, it is pretty obvious that they wanted to go for something edgy but the end-result was basically a rather mis... read more

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but the title was promising and since there was a decent cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, to be honest, I was rather surprised by how underwhelming the damned thing actually turned out to be after all. Indeed, it is pretty obvious that they wanted to go for something edgy but the end-result was basically a rather misguided mix of fairly dark realism, goofy comedic satire and even some romantic-comedy but this mix never really worked, in fact, it was actually rather hard to swallow. It didn’t help that the cast was rather weak but I guess they were not helped by the fact that it was all rather poorly written. Indeed, for example, Tina Fey was a perfect choice on paper but, eventually, she was never really co” read more

"25.5. 2019 An American reporter quits her boring office job and takes part in a dangerous mission in Afghanistan where she gets new friends and new enemies as well. In one scene one the main characters says something about how US is protecting Chinese corporate interests in Afghanistan. This may be an interesting subject but the film isn't brave enough to explore it further. "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" could've been a great and analytical political thriller. There are some good ideas in the film he"

“Surprisingly subdued but entertaining dramedy centered around the Afghan conflict. Tina Fey is Kim Baker, an ambitious reporter embedded in a land where cultures clash and new lives are forged as easily as they are lost.

The movie's strengths are multitude but it really does an excellent job of showing how ambition unrestrained can bear heavy costs if not kept in check while simultaneously showing us how our perceived control of the lives we lead is fleeting at best. Though this sounds nearly nihilistic, the film does a wonderful job of dissecting this theme with a tactful lightness that suggests that everything is part of the learning process of life.

In addition to this we get an engaging, charming, and talented cast of actors that, alongside Ms. Fey, make spending ti” read more

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- July 2016 (38 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr 53min. First Viewing A surprisingly engaging dramedy about war correspondents in the 2000s, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot doesn't say anything new about the war or the media, but overcomes this by keeping it's focus on a single person's experience. In a way, though mildly reductive, it's, somewhat, How Stella Got Her Groove Back with a dash of The Hurt Locker. Tonal whiplash is in the film's DNA; it goes from slapstick comedy to attempting sobering drama. It doesn't always work, but it's not a"

"10/2/17 A film looking for an identity. Tina Fey plays an American journalist sent to Afghanistan and finds herself lost in a world she doesn't understand. Part factual drama, part comedy, it's the strength of the leading lady and the supporting cast that keeps the film interesting, yet as a piece of satire, it lacks the well-needed bite."
