Encapsulated Cinema Goes to War: Soldiers of Fortune, Special Forces, and Starship Troopers: Invasion

19 August 2012 3:41 PM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Soldiers Of Fortune (2012) Maxim Korostyshevsky’s “Soldiers of Fortune” has a pretty cool premise, which makes the fact that it’s such a bad movie rather disappointing. It goes a little something like this: rich tycoons pay for the privilege of fighting in a real war, albeit with ex-Special Forces operators like Christian Slater as their personal bodyguards. The whole thing is the brainchild of siblings trying to fund a rebellion on their small island nation, which is currently in the iron grips of a two-bit warlord and his ex-cia right-hand man played by Colm Meaney, doing what Colm Meaney does best in movies like this, which is play the officious douche. Slater’s character is an ex-Army Captain booted out of the service when he disregards the orders of — you guessed it — a certain CIA douche. The two enemies meet up again when Slater leads the rich guys onto the island, »

Soldiers of Fortune Review

10 August 2012 4:54 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Soldiers of Fortune Cast: Christian Slater, Ving Rhames, Sean Bean Directed by: Maxim Korostyshevsky Yet another B-grade Christian Slater film. First the disastrous Assassin’s Bullet, now Soldiers of Fortune. While the former is an insult to the intellect, the latter is an insult to common decency. This is apparently Maxim Korostyshevsky’s debut feature film and it shows. In this one, Slater plays Craig McCenzie, a soldier who was dishonorably discharged after refusing to follow orders that would have required him to leave another soldier–a friend, no less–behind to die. Maxim’s directorial debut is pure propaganda at its worst. He makes some half-baked attempts at making war and killing seem so  [ Read More ] »

Soldiers Of Fortune Trailer Takes a Shot at The Expendables

17 June 2012 9:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »


A trailer was released by IGN for Soldiers of Fortune, which stars Christian Slater, Ving Rhames, Sean Bean, Dominic Monaghan, and James Cromwell. In the trailer they use the word 'expendable' probably hoping that will help people draw an obvious comparison to Stallone's super team-up action flick. Too bad this film looks extremely pale in that comparison. The premise of the movie, which revolves around wealthy thrill-seekers who pay hefty premiums to have themselves inserted into military adventures, only to be put in actual danger, is more reminiscent of Tropic Thunder. Once again Soldiers of Fortune loses out, with nothing in the trailer amounting to more than a faint chuckle. Even with some damn fine actors, there's seems to be not one ounce of chemistry between the cast. I'll be waiting for this one to show up on TV when I'm in a hotel. Maaaaaaybe I'l watch it then. No promises though. »
