Good Family Action Movie
23 May 2016 | by DSee all my reviews

What would you do for someone you love? Some would go to war, and in this movie, these "geezers" did.

Sure, there were many detail errors, including not filming anywhere in North America that actually looks like A-Stan. Part of watching a picture is the suspension of disbelief so as to be entertained and to "get" the moral of the production. Persons who rate this film in the dumps, seems to completely forget that very important fact. Makes me wonder if they think Star Wars or Star Trek films are real history just because they are well done.

The film's message is what is important. Can you suffer hardship and loss and still stand up to do something about it, even put your own life on the line for what you believe in or love if you do not have to?

I appreciate the message of this film and the efforts of these thespians, who are not "spring chickens" any more, in conveying it to us, the audience.
