pretty good
30 April 2007 | by schmoe1See all my reviews

It is definitely a lot better than a lot of movies you see on HBO and DVD, I think it was interesting and the music score was great. The actors were good for the most part, the military advising on the one firefight was awesome and very real to life (the one on the Pakistan border) The director did a good job, although the first 15 minutes were a bit convoluted, but it all came together after that. i saw a comment about the motorcycle stunts in the beginning not being very fast, but that was a pretty steep bank they came down. I would recommend renting for a night of entertainment, all in all, good compared to what is out there. the countryside where the film was shot was beautiful and the set seemed to be very detailed. UPDATE

To address the post of another user, yes, I was involved in the film, yes, I did the technical military/SEAL advising and yes, the firefight at the Pakistani border was choreographed by myself, and yes, it was a textbook frontal assault, quick and to the point. Yes, it was a very well choreographed firefight, done with the help of a real former Navy SEAL with combat experience. The firefight in the beginning of the movie was not choreographed by me, it was not how i would have done it as it is strategically wrong (but then, so is much in Hollywood as far as gun battles) Two: I did give it a rating of 10 stars, because i felt that some people were being a little overboard on giving it one star. I thought it would help balance it out, you have to realize, this movie was not an 80 million dollar movie, but a 2 million dollar movie made to go straight to DVD. For what it was intended, it is a good movie. What one thinks of a movie is their opinion, and they are entitled to that opinion, just as i am entitled to my own opinion. Third: the comments posted prior to the release date were in violation of IMDb terms. Someone posting about a movie not yet released has obviously obtained a copy illegally, so there was a valid reason those posts were removed.

To address Tullys statement, i looked at some of your reviews, it seems you hate almost every movie you review. Do not come on the board and make false (far out accusations) that is uncalled for. I posted before release date because i saw the pre screening, only a handful of people did. Anyone else posting a review before the movie was released, there is no way they got the movie legally. There were a bunch of bit torrent downloads that occurred however. IMDb took the postings down before the release date because they agreed that it was not according to their TOS.

Any other questions, i will be glad to answer.
