Goofs

When Lt. Colonel Bowers, played by Rob Riggle, sips from a paper cup of coffee, you can tell that the coffee either wasn't in the cup at all or it was not at the level he pretended to sip out of. Because of the camera angle, we see that while he barely tips it to drink, you can see below the rim the white inside of the coffee cup goes quite a ways down. See more »

Very predictable 'good guy bad guy' movie
9 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

A 'good guy bad guy' movie; The Americans are the saints, the hero's; And the Al Qaida are the bastards. A soldier -don't know his name- was asked 'Will you do this dangerous jopb?'. His so 'brave' answer: 'We are here anyway. Let's finnish the job!'

Further: Also beautifull shots. For the rest: Boring; A very predictable movie.

When you're into more realistic movies, with depth-characters, this movie is a waste of time.
