The release of Our Brand Is Crisis coincides with one of the more colorful American presidential primary seasons in recent memory. Unfortunately, it isn’t half as interesting as a real-life Republican debate. Crisis tells the tale of a last-place campaign’s upswing, propelled by dirty tricks of the trade, but makes drab work out of potentially entertaining and thought-provoking material. Campaign boss wannabes might pick up a few pointers from the film, but others considering buying a ticket might elect to sit this one out.
