Goofs

When going over the qualifications of the 4 women, it's revealed that Clay was court marshaled from the Marine Corp. Later, during her conversation in Ulrika's office, Clay says that her "Army days are behind her." Those are two completely different branches of the military, and no one who was in one would claim to be in the other. See more »

A female version of The Expendables with roughly the same acting, dialog and plot.
6 October 2014 | by cosmo_tigerSee all my reviews

"We're not nice women. We're not going on some fun adventure. We're going to do some very bad things to some very bad people." Ulrika (Nielsen) has just taken the President's daughter captive and is demanding for the US to recognize her as a Head of State or she will kill the daughter. The government has only one option, they must send in a team of mercenaries to rescue her. A team of women is picked and the mayhem begins. There isn't really a whole lot to say about this movie. This is an Expendables with women. That really tells you all you need to know. The dialog is cheesy and the acting isn't that good. The action sequences are OK but generic...like I said another version of Expendables. The movie was entertaining enough and I did stay with it and wasn't too bored but that's about all I have to say. Overall, a female version of The Expendables with roughly the same acting, dialog and plot. I give this a C+.
