Dominic Monaghan had a particularly unpleasant time making this movie, and told Empire magazine he was delighted that " he would never have to go back to Ukraine ". See more »
Just before the APC starts attacking the rebel base, a Blue Jay can be seen. Since 'Soldiers of Fortune' takes place in Eastern Europe, there should be no Blue Jays there, as Blue Jays are a North American species of bird. See more »

Okay, Miss Mike, you're in.
Watch your ass.

Definitely Taliban presence here. Not a lot, but they're here. Over.
If you see Bin Laden, you can give him a big New York kiss. Then chop his nuts off. You can wear them as earrings.

This is by the definition a bad, bad movie. Almost nothing works, the villains are cardboard cutouts, the story is virtually non-existent and the special effects often fail. However i still enjoyed the hell out of this movie. The rag-tag team of money-loaded idiots was surprisingly likable, and i genuinely did not want any of them to get hurt.
Christian Slater is at his best, compared to some of his other roles his performance here is practically Oscar worthy. Sean Bean can give weight to anything he's given, and it shows. While his character was so obviously badly written, his performance camouflaged that as a mystery element which made him honestly the most interesting one of the bunch. Rest of the main cast deserves my props as well for being likable and making their underdeveloped characters as interesting as possible. Most of the jokes are hit and miss, but some were pure gold, that made me and my mates laugh out loud for the first time in a long while.
All in all from technical point of view this movie deserves a 2/10, but from the entertainment point of view it's a solid 9/10. And to me all movies are made for entertainment. If you have a few mates with you - grab some beer and watch this movie. Excellent way to spend an evening!
P.S. If you like old, goofy Schwarzenegger movies - this one is for you. It's absurdity is only matched by how friggin' enjoyable it is!
