Not the worst movie ever made, but it comes close.
First of all, this is a movie with semi-realism, people actually die from bullets and on both sides. There's probably more "friendlies" dying in this movie than in any other U.S. stereotype-film.
The movie is pretty straightforward, there are some weak attempts at trying to write subplots (ie. the world's most dangerous terrorist manages to be a part of the Seal Team (don't ask)) there's also the occasional "My wife got killed by americans"-whine, and "America is a murderer"... really strong motives.
As for cinematography this is pretty bad, there are lots of jump-cuts, and there are some beginner's mistakes that make it look like a B-production. One thing that's pretty hilarious is that they've done a voice-dub when the seal-team is diving, I don't know, but when you're scuba-diving I find it hard to believe that you're able to speak in a radio, and the mindless things they say "Oh yeah!, I cut him", "I'm coming to help you guys" (when they're in the same cramped area.
The acting is really subpar, which considering the really vivid imagery of explosions tells of a costly setup. There's namely LOTS of explosions in this movie, the pyrotechnicians really had a great time.
Some of the shots show really expensive effects (ie. they drive a couple of trailers off a cliff, one blows up, another one goes under the water), they sink a really big boat, etc.
If you're really BORED and out of war-movies to watch, this can maybe (worst-case-scenario) be something to see. Otherwise, avoid it. Just fast-forward to the scenes with the explosions, and you might get 3-4 minutes of enjoyment from this.
The reason the rubber boat exploded, was because there was a case full of explosives in it.
