Christian Slater's birthday is August 18th, the same as the character he plays in this film, Craig McCenzie. See more »
On US military uniforms, the flag patch is usually worn backwards on the right sleeve. In the movie, the flag is displayed in the wrong orientation. 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.

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+.
