Start: Very American and with many shaky cameras. It’s a flag flier fest of fury. There’s also a lot of lame plot set up where each of a ‘crack’ team talk to each other in aghast tones revealing the way governments think of each other, as if this has never been discussed before.
…and so on. It’s a big screen version of a TV series. Many patronising gimmicks being foisted on a viewing public. Don’t get me wrong, there are flashes of cultural and thriller interest but these are swallowed up by glib Americanisms and those damn shaky cameras.
There’s one very violent and realistic chase and fight scene. It’s VERY violent. But it doesn’t make up for the smaltz afterwards. And what gives with the crappy music? Really. I mean, really. Give it a break with the hanky moments.
Good? No. Big budget, high action but not a good film and the lines stink. BIG time.
Watch if on TV?
Snog, Marry, Avoid?
Avoid. There are a lot better, less cheesy out there. Don’t waste time here.
