After a personal visit by God himself, the eccentric construction worker Gary Faulkner takes the decision to embark on an adventure in the badlands of Pakistan to bring Al-Qaeda's leader Osama Bin Laden to justice.
At about 1:20 in the film, there is a shot of an oil rig, and in the background you can see mountains in the distance. There are no mountains visible from any rigs in the Gulf of Mexico near the Louisiana coast. See more »
Moulay Ismail, that Moroccan ruler, fathered 900 children with his concubines. 900 children. Genghis Khan, well, he made old Ismail look barren. One out of every 200 men on this planet has a direct line stretching back to that son of a bitch.

A really good movie that Cage didn't screw up with his acting. His best in a while.
"Great men, men who build legacies, they aren't always decent." After giving an impassioned speech talking about the effects of the BP oil spill in Louisiana Congressman Colin Price (Cage) is poised to make a run for the Senate. When a scandal is revealed his career is over. Now, after losing everything he has to chose between wanting to make a real difference, or becoming like every other politician. I don't think I even need to state this anymore but I am not a Nicolas Cage fan at all. There have been a few of his movies I liked (National Treasure, Rock) but not because of him, it was the idea and actual movie I liked. This movie falls under that category. It may have been because of the political aspect but this was very interesting to me and watching a politician build himself back up is inspiring, especially when it is someone who is really trying to make a positive change. Not many of those in real life. Overall, a really good movie that Cage didn't screw up with his acting. His best in a while. I give it a B+.
