One of the worst action flics ever made
1 May 2006 | by (DeKalb, Illinois, United States) – See all my reviews

Made for TV, the fade-to-commercial breaks often come in the middle of continuing scenes - very awkward. The characters are caricatures, and not well-drawn, at that. The plot is ridiculous, completely implausible, laughably silly. In fact, one of the things that makes the movie watchable at all is to see how bad it gets from scene to scene, and how completely preposterous the clichés used.

As another reviewer said, the special effects are not very good. The notion that the DoD would employ a private group of - ready for this? - four people who outfit standard commercial vehicles as super-duper technological miracles that inerringly defeat the bad guys while remaining invulnerable to anything thrown at them is totally absurd. This flic is no doubt less painful than 90 minutes of root-canal without anesthetic. But not as interesting.
