Goofs

Early in the movie there is a news report stating "a trove of arms from German military forces were discovered in Pakistan". While the reporter specifically says "German military" equipment it shows British SA80 rifles as the supposed German military equipment. Germans do not use the British SA80 rifle platform, instead using their own weapons manufactured in-country. See more »

unconvincing & not worth it throughout
25 September 2012 | by (Austin, TX, USA) – See all my reviews

I expected a B movie with some cheesy action to redeem it. Indeed the DVD jacket suggested the bare bones of a plot that the film did fulfill. But nothing could have warned me that fulfillment could be so boring, so stupid, and so unconvincing.

One starts to get an idea by the flatness of the dialog and emotion at the start. Does it ever improve? No. The actors have looks but they never seem invested. The style is low budget TV or straight to video.

Then the first action scene is there delivering nothing worth watching as well yet nonetheless impressing me: must the characters--good guys and bad--really be that dumb in a firefight? Must they fight so badly? Incredible! Next we get to the airplane and by then there's no doubt what will be delivered: a film neither convincing enough to be worthwhile nor cheesy enough to overcome its stupidities. The set says it by looking nothing like an airplane. The special effects say it by looking unrealistic. The characters say it by reacting to danger, injury, and threat with true stupidity. The plot says it by lacking so much common sense in its particulars that there's no buying into any part of it.

I can't recommend this movie on any level. But if you're a glutton for self-flagellation, a fan of boring, or looking for a movie that you can walk away from without missing anything, then maybe you'll want to check this out. In such an ill-considered event, I recommend that you attempt to keep your brain half alive by attempting to note some fraction of the ways stupid will out. For example, as a teaser, how would you handle events like these: - Protecting self from gunfire.

  • Moving and fighting while shot, stabbed, or something.




  • Wound care for your friends.




  • Someone there to kill you.




  • On plane expecting bad things will happen.




  • Airplane safety procedures and equipment.




  • Keeping somebody captured from posing further threat.




  • Hide from people who would kill you.




I like lots of B action movies. But this one is not worth watching.

Really! Find some another movie.
