REVIEW: Civil War (2024 Film) - Starring Kirsten Dunst and Nick Offerman

"Civil War," directed by Alex Garland, falls short of its promising premise, delivering a dull and underwhelming viewing experience. Despite the backdrop of a nation torn apart by civil strife, the film focuses primarily on the ethical dilemmas faced by a group of journalists led by renowned war photographer Lee Smith, played by Kirsten Dunst.

The lack of compelling storytelling, depth of characters, and exploration of the conflict's ideologies make "Civil War" a missed opportunity. While the incorporation of real-life footage depicting the violence perpetrated by radical far-left anarchists adds some interest, it's not enough to salvage the film from its overall lackluster execution. I score "Civil War" a poor 3 out of 10.
