Was fun to watch, but don't expect an Oscar nomination
By Ryan Binse www.thatsmye.com
Jed Eckart, Iraq Veteran, is on a leave of absence from the Marine Corps when suddenly a blackout knocks out the United States. Wait a minute. That's no regular blackout. It's the North Koreans invading with some help from the Russians (Hooray Throwback!). With no time to waste, Jed takes his brother and a few of the neighborhood kids to safety. Now it's up to him to teach these teenagers what it's like to shoot, blow up, and kill the enemy.– A story of honor, courage, and determination.
I had a lot of fun watching this film. A sense of patriotism could be felt throughout. The action sequences were methodic, suspenseful, and explosive. It's obvious some military trained personnel were on the set for this project, as you can see in some of the infiltration and attack scenes. The absence of CGI was a definite plus. While sitting in my seat, I was taken back to a time when filmmakers blew up things for real. I'm telling you almost every scene after the first ten minutes– EXPLOSION. Also, the choices for location assisted very well in creating the feel the filmmakers wanted to convey . The use of a peaceful middle class suburbia, a busy downtown district, and the "old high school football field" seemed to help elevate the stakes. All this amazement has a price tag on it though. I call it acting. As with many action movies, this is usually a lacking aspect. So, if you've read this far, I'll assume you already know it's an action film and performance is something you can easily forgive. I'll warn you though. The character arcs of the two brothers are the exact opposite and don't really serve Jed's character. With that said, the premise is also another aspect one should "overlook" to fully enjoy the film. Most of the characters in the story seem to work except for the foul-mouthed Marine. You'll know who I'm talking about when you see it. I'm done spoiling the movie. "But why should I go and see this movie," you ask. Well In conclusion, I will leave you with two comments: 1. From the Critic: I felt I had to relax a lot to go along with the premise and the acting. That along with the forced "military" dialogue and the brother's feud, I would tell my friends that it was enjoyable, but not the best.
2. From the Moviegoer: I got a little more than what I came for. Guns, bombs, hot chicks with rocket-propelled grenades, and a Banana Republic version of Thor. If you don't see it for yourself, see it for America!
