R | | Biography, Comedy, Crime
Loosely based on the true story of two young men, David Packouz and Efraim Diveroli, who won a three hundred million dollar contract from the Pentagon to arm America's allies in Afghanistan.
The action that took place in Albania was filmed in Romania, even the language of the workers at the warehouse was Romanian.
They called guys like us war dogs. Bottom feeders who make money off of war without ever stepping foot on the battlefield. It was supposed to be derogatory, but... we kind of liked it.
When David and Efraim meet with Henri the arms dealer in Las Vegas, David's voiceover says "When Iraq hung Saddam Hussein for crimes against humanity, rumor was Henri sold them the rope they used." The scene is set in mid-2006, and Saddam was executed in December 2006. However, David is providing an after-the-fact overview to the entire story.
