The Men Who Stare At GoatsPosted: January 2, 2012
It’s a comic war movie about a secret military unit of psychic soldiers. I liked George Clooney as the solider from the unit. If he’d overplayed his role it would have ruined the movie. Instead he’s sort of a straight man who’s seen the paranormal and had no choice but believing. Ewan McGregor doesn’t really stand out as the reporter, but it allows the move to make Jedi jokes.
I found it enjoyable but then I tend to like the absurd.
