VERDICT – 0/5
1) Sniper shootout alongside the mercenaries.
1) It’s really baffling that good war movies like Black Hawk Down (2001) or even Three Kings (1999) aren’t even nominated for Best Picture Category at the Oscars while over-rated lifeless forgettable movies like this went on to win 6.
2) No character development, no noteworthy scenes, no interesting sub-plots. This movie is a sheer disappointment.
Staff Sergeant William James: [Speaking to his son] You love playing with that. You love playing with all your stuffed animals. You love your mommy, your daddy, your nature pajamas. You love everything, don’t ya? Yeah. But you know what, buddy? As you get older… some of the things that you love might not seem so special anymore, you know? Like your Jack-in-a-Box. Maybe you’ll realize it’s just a piece of tin and a stuffed animal, but the older you get, the fewer things you really love, and by the time you get to my age, maybe it’s only one or two things. With me, I think it’s one.
