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/tank fires at Ernesto you can see cords going into the barrel of the main gun. See more »

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.

A bad made for TV movie that is made more legit by the casting. Surprisingly entertaining with great cast. I say B+
"You and Ernesto are pimping out your revolution as some kind of tourist attraction for a bunch of millionaires and you expect me to be your guide." Iraq war vet Craig McCenzie (Slater) is living out his post war days in Montana playing poker and running a business out of his camper. He is recruited to become a "tour guide" to a group of millionaires who want to experience real warfare. What starts out as a "camp" soon takes a dangerous turn and a real battle takes place. I have to start by saying that even though the cast is very good and full of well known actors this is still a B movie. That said I actually enjoyed this. Normally not my kind of movie this one was entertaining enough to keep me watching and enjoying it. I didn't watch the trailer before viewing and when it got to the part where it revealed the plot point of being a reality-show type island I almost turned it off. The actors they picked to be the millionaires kept me watching and even though this is nothing but running around and shooting it is worth a watch. It also may have helped that I had no expectations about it going in. One of the better B movies that have come out it a while and Slater's best movie in a long time. Overall, an OK movie that is helped a lot by the casting. I surprisingly give it a B+.
