Storyline

After returning to civilian life as a Texas rancher, Captain Lance Deakin fends off attacks from former members of his unit as he struggles to uncover the truth of what he did as a soldier in Iraq. The military performed experiments on Lance and his men to turn them into super-soldiers and brainwashed them to remember their top secret missions as the hyper-violent content of a video game called MINUTEMAN. Lance must uncover the truth in time to save the woman he loves. Written by Millhone, Mark

worth the rental.
13 September 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I guess I want to agree with pretty much everything MBunge from Waterloo, Iowa wrote in his/her review. (sorry Not sure about gender just by screen name) The first thing I did when it was over was to go online to see if maybe there was a series coming this season along the line of this movie. I really mistook it for a pilot for a new series. Tell you the truth I would like to see it done too. Yeah sure I gave it a 4 but for me thats not a really a bad thing cause for me 5 is Good anything about means beyond good and slightly below doesn't mean it sucked, of course a 1 would say that but I didn't give it a 1. I enjoyed the Story, I enjoyed the acting and actors,I enjoyed most of the script, the flashbacks were not that much of a problem but there was something about how this movie looked that I just couldn't believe it actually cost 3 million. I mean even if they had grade A actors and so it felt like a very low b film.

Anyhow , I don't feel as though I wasted my time nor money but I wouldn't push to be in the front of the line to see it either.

Finally ,to anybody and everybody involved in this movie well...Thanks you
