Dear god burn this film with fire then return my hour and a half wasted please. This film is terrible and not just by the so bad it’s good scale or anything. It is really just bad beyond belief.
For it being a action movie first off there is little action. Sure you have the beginning and closing scene but other than that there isn’t much. Which brings me to my next point. Why in gods name are the action scenes done so horribly. I mean for instance you can tell they are not only acting horribly but the shots don’t match up sometimes and they act like they are firing rockets with some of the kickback they get. Finally though when someone gets shot you see the bright red CGI blood go. It’s just so bad it’s not even laughable at.
The story is just all over the place and filled with such over the top stupidity that it makes you think that they weren’t even trying to make a good film. There was one scene after the opening action scene that really made me laugh though. Randy Couture is covered in blood on his face and shirt so he goes back to the HQ office and talks to his supervisor then goes to his desk and starts working and talking to people. Never once does he wipe the blood off his face or clean his shirt he just continues on as if nothing out of the ordinary happened.
The only redeeming factor of the film is Vinnie Jones and even then he can’t even start to help the film. Avoid this like the plague.
