21 April 2009 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I understand this is one of Uwe Boll's better films, which is like saying Auschwitz was one of Hitler's better concentration camps.

Every moment and every character is horribly cliché'd, and nothing is terribly interesting.

Like all Americans, I'm somewhat protective of my country, and if you're going to make a film about America from an outside perspective, you better have something interesting to say. If all you can do is repeat endless clichés that other have already said, that's not art and that's not insight, it's just insult.

And insulted is how I feel after watching this film.

Oh, and the main theme music is a ripoff of Led Zeppelin.
