Did You Know?


The so called Captain mentioned section 434.868c granted by the U.S Senate, but nothing like that actually exists and therefore as a PMC he has no right to any diplomatic and could be deemed "persona non grata" by its host nation. See more »

User Reviews

Hard to believe
17 February 2016 | by mikekozelSee all my reviews

In a world of seasoned pros, young genius, and serious money, it is amazing to see a property with the Eastwood tag so mishandled, badly directed, obviously posed, set in a ridiculous and sloppy script, and dished out to the public as some beefcake manboy that can be shot at times to give us that glimpse of that tobacco spitting, grizzled icon we really loved. Rowdy Yates had better lines, better direction, better support, and a charisma this kid ain't got,and that was TV. The horse this new kid rode in on should be in the glue factory along with all the other dead horses. Incompetent management of this magnitude is really amazing. Not reading much about the flick? There is nothing here to write about.
