non-credible script, bad acting and directing
17 December 2004 | by dromascaSee all my reviews

Hard to believe that the director of this film was once trusted with directing some of the films in the James Bond series. This is a worse than average action film, badly written, acted and directed. The subject is of an Israeli anti-terrorist squad mistakenly targeting the wrong man, and as a result its members becoming the target of a revenge series of murders. The way the Israeli ambiance and individuals are being described is completely wrong, and the complete idealization of the Israeli side does not help. The Middle East conflict is much more complex than a good vs. bad guys gun fight, but even for an action movie there are not too many new, unexpected or interesting things to be seen. A waste of time - 3 out of 10 on my personal scale.
