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.

Seriously, to all those haters: what were you expecting from a recent dtv release starring ving rhames and Christian slater? If you were expecting anything else than an action packed B movie, than you, sir or madame, are a moron. But if you came in for a fun ride with a bunch of washed up actors doing their best to bring cardboard characters to live, a ridiculous plot, hammy jokes and some big bang for your buck, than you 're surely going to enjoy this one. The movie is fast paced, funny and incredibly well shot (it's always nice to see an action movie that's not shot in an Bulgarian backyard or an empty warehouse), there's plenty of action (some big explosions, shootouts with nasty guns, knife fights and even a jet ski chase) and those actionsetpieces are nicely shot, edited and lit that you can easily follow them and won't feel dizzy. It also helps that the cast is doing great and seems to be into the joke. The movie is a throwback to early 90's action flicks like Lundgren's "Men of War" or "Double Force" and it will surely satisfy the action fans till the big brother enter the theaters with "Expendables 2".
