Editorial Reviews

Christian Slater and Vingh Rhames lead a stellar cast in this explosive, action-packed adventure. Slater stars as Captain Craig McCenzie, a disgraced special forces officer hand-picked to lead the ultimate extreme vacation. Five super-rich thrill-seekers have paid a premium to have themselves inserted into a real-life military mission: delivering weapons to the besieged rebels of an island stronghold. But when the plan backfires and all hell breaks loose, McCenzie and his squad of amateur soldiers find themselves fighting a furious battle to survive.

"You and Ernesto are pimping out your revolution as some kind of tourist attraction for a bunch of millionaires and you expect me to be your guide." Iraq war vet Craig McCenzie (Slater) is living out his post war days in Montana playing poker and running a business out of his camper. He is recruited to become a "tour guide" to a group of millionaires who want to experience real warfare. What starts out as a "camp" soon takes a dangerous turn and a real battle takes place. I have to start by saying that even though the cast is very good and full of well known actors this is still a B movie. That said I actually enjoyed this. Normally not my kind of movie this one was entertaining enough to keep me watching and enjoying it. I didn't watch the trailer before viewing and when it got to the part where it revealed the plot point of being a reality-show type island I almost turned it off. The actors they picked to be the millionaires kept me watching and even though this is nothing but running around and shooting it is worth a watch. It also may have helped that I had no expectations about it going in. One of the better B movies that have come out it a while and Slater's best movie in a long time. Overall, an OK movie that is helped a lot by the casting. I surprisingly give it a B+.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do NOT Waste Your Time and Money August 12, 2012
By Sean
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This movie was bad from the beginning all the way through to the end. I feel insulted and ashamed for watching all of it. Please don't make the same mistake I did by thinking it must be good because of the cast. It just isn't true. The story line is implausible, the dialogue is juvenile, and the production is very poor.

I normally don't write reviews, but if one person skips this movie after reading this one, then my job is well done.

4.0 out of 5 stars I ALWAYS GET PAID August 4, 2012
Format:DVD
The film opens with Craig McCenzie (Christian Slater) leading a secret reconnaissance mission in Afghanistan. With the life of a fellow soldier (Freddy Rodríguez) in danger, Craig ignores orders to save him from our own CIA man Carter Mason (Colm Meaney). Rather than get a medal, they are dishonorably discharged from the service. They have fallen on hard times.

Our heroes are then recruited by the lovely Cecelia (Oksana Korostyshevskaya) to lead a group of mercenaries to act as freedom fighter for a mineral wealthy island known as Snake Island (Black Sea?) against a ruthless colonel (Gennadi Vengerov) his equally ruthless daughter (Sarah Ann Schultz) and his arch enemy Carter Mason. However there is a catch to this whole thing. Not only must he free the island but do so while escorting 5 millionaires who want to "play soldier" for various reasons. They are funding the revolution. Thus a play on words of "Soldiers of Fortune."

The 5 guys are:

Dimidov (Sean Bean): He is originally from the island. He is in the mining business and already knows how to handle weapons.

Grimaud aka Grim Reaper (Ving Rhames): An African general who knows how to fight. He sold the colonel weapons and he is late on his payment.

Sin (Dominic Monaghan): Video game designer who makes violent video games. His psychologist recommended reality. For added measure he has a broken leg.

Haussman (James Cromwell): He has done everything in life. His goal is to die so his kids get his fortune and not his wife (Ekaterina Suslova) known only as #5.

Vanderbeer (Charlie Bewley): Runs a successful Wall Street hedge fund that made money when everyone lost. He just wants the bragging rights.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheese Factor Times Eleven May 13, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
A very cheesy flick. With the actor lineup, I'm stunned by the quality. It's not like it's unbearable to watch (i.e. it has good production value overall), but it's just horribly cheesy. The story (or lack thereof) is an awful attempt to allow for corny military bravado in every scene.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the time & price. Great action. September 6, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Every week we search Amazon for one of their recently released movies. It beats the heck out of going to the theater & paying $20+. The plot involves something that deep down many of us would enjoy doing. Out of the last 10 movies we have watch through Amazon - this is #1. Great acting, great action & loads of gun & explosions. The characters are exceptionally well done.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Quite Awful Enough To Be Funny July 20, 2014
Format:DVD
A friend of mine told me about this movie and said, "if you have trouble sleeping you should check this out." So one night when the neighbors were partying too loudly for me to get any rest I thought, "OK..."

It's difficult to know where to start because everything is wrong with this awful flaccid pointless waste of time and money. The script was apparently written by a retarded three-year-old, the camera work was accomplished by a chimpanzee, and the acting... well, let's just hope the actors were in it for the money because they certainly aren't going to get jobs based on the performances they dialed in remotely. The dialog appears to have been snipped from a variety of C-grade action movies (including "I'll be back") and the assumption seems to have been that the audience will comprise entirely of people whose lack of measurable brain function now qualifies the doctors to discontinue life support.

I kept hoping it would become bad enough to elicit a laugh but instead its own earnestness prevented the movie from becoming even funny. It was just abysmal in every regard. After 20 minutes I'd had enough but I kept watching with the same kind of horrified fascination normally reserved for the sight of someone sawing off their own leg. Finally the neighbors drew their night time revels to a merciful close and this dreadful squib ended around the same time.

In short there's nothing whatsoever to recommend about this total piece of rubbish. Avoid at all costs.
