A team of highly trained operatives find themselves trapped inside an isolated military compound after its AI is suddenly shut down. The crew begins to experience strange and horrific phenomena as they attempt to uncover what killed the previous team.
The latest Snipes is like watching the latest Seagal...
Wesley Snipes. The man of Passenger 57, Demolition Man, U.S. Marshals, The Blade Trilogy.. But also films like Murder At 1600, The Art Of War and Game Of Death are among his best but we've also had to endure a lot of trash (see almost everything else in his filmography for that).
His latest success was his performance in the flawed Expendables 3. With "Armed Response" he really hit a new low. That also goes for Anne Heche (why is she in this movie ?). I read the bad reviews but watched it anyway because I was prepared it was not just an action movie, but an action/horror movie. Well, it wasn't either. No scares, no action, no fighting, no thrills, no tension.
Just one single location and one 'special forces' team trying to figure out what's going on for the entire running time of 90 minutes. You'll get bored out of your mind because nothing happens. Dialogue and script are laughable.
The first sign is the moment when a soldier reports back to squad leader Snipes that he found one of the missing men who's dead. Snipes'response is simply "okay". He doesn't even ask if and how he's killed. Seems trivial because no one knows what's going on and what they're fighting at that time..
More people show up dead and then they're (rather easily) trapped.
It really isn't worth your time sticking around waiting for the revelation because it's just stupid.
