Not recommended for die hard war fans.
9 February 2012 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

As the cover might give the impression that this is a serious war film it is not, in fact realism is thrown out the window in this film, the gun battles are poorly staged, the script is a typical story of a rescue team sent somewhere to rescue a senator from a group of terrorists, the acting is bad and the film clearly suffers from a low budget.

Aside from that, there are some really bad casting choices made here, mainly Stacy Keach who is actually too overweight to play a marine commander and the rest of the cast seem unsure on how to portray their characters.

The plus side is it did manage to pass the time which is the only reason I gave it more than one star but I can imagine that it will be more of a chore to sit through for many people so I wouldn't even recommend this film as a last resort.
