Storyline

In a former Soviet Republic, the President is oppressing the people and with help from a former Bosnian General who's a sadist, he is extremely hated. An American reporter goes there to catch the atrocities on film but is caught. She is forced to make false statements. So the Americans sends a Special Forces unit to try and rescue her. It's a big deal for the team's leader because the Bosnian once captured him and tortured him. While there they run into a British agent who was sent there on a mission and they work together. But when they try to leave they're captured. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Another winner from Isaac Florentine and Nu Image
22 September 2010 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

(Preface: Don't confuse this "Special Forces" movie with the Daniel Bernhardt "Special Forces" movie!)

I like movies from the Nu Image filmstudio, and I also like movies directed by action king Isaac Florentine, so I knew I had to watch this. I was not disappointed. I will freely admit that this movie is not perfect. The CGI effects are obvious and clunky. There is little written to differentiate the protagonists from each other, and the bad guys are stock characters. The dialogue is often very familiar. And a large part of the first half of the movie is really slow and drawn out.

But there are more positive things about "Special Forces" than negative. It is slickly shot, with clear photography and good lighting. The Lithuania locations are well chosen, and dressed with enough props and extras to look realistic. But the best thing about the movie are the action sequences. A lot of money was obviously spent on ammo and explosive devices, and the various shootouts are really exciting. Even better are the martial art sequences - these sequences can stand proudly beside martial art sequences from Hong Kong films. And the last forty or so minutes of the movie are non-stop action - you'll be barely given time to breathe! Just be a little patient during the first half of the movie, and you'll be rewarded with enough mayhem to really pump your blood.
