There are no words to adequately convey what a horrible, horrible atrocity this thing is. Please understand, I enjoy bad movies. They're fun. This, though...this was not fun. This is bad on a whole new level, one I have never experienced. You ever wince at spoken dialogue? Like, visibly WINCE? Me neither, until about five minutes in. And it doesn't stop. Not ever. Know anything about how special operations work? No? Watch this movie and know even LESS. You will quite literally accrue a negative balance of tactical knowledge, possibly creating some kind of singularity in the process that erases all known combat doctrine from existence. Don't worry though, because you'll more than make up for that in Sun Tzu quotes. There's like a million of them here. In this movie everyone in the entire world has read Sun Tzu, and they're not bashful about sharing that fact with everyone else. MAN. I mean, I just finished watching this, and my mind is just...blown. It's blown. Even more mind-blowing, though, is that other people have rated this movie at five stars. I want to meet these people. I really, honestly want to meet them, because I'm pretty sure I have never met anyone like them before, and cannot fathom the inner workings of a fellow human being that would derive that much pleasure from this movie. I can only imagine that they're fascinating. So, while I'm giving this movie one star, I'm simultaneously recommending it to anyone who wants to expand their understanding as to what a bad movie can truly be. It's almost transcendental.

This movie is a cheap attempt to cash in on the public's dislike for our former president. It's got almost no coherent plot line and the action scenes are just stupid. Furthermore, the ending is horrible and leaves the viewer wondering what happened to the rest of the movie.

The basic plot is that paramilitary operative David Wolfe uncovers a plot between Osama Bin Laden and the U.S. government to keep him alive because the government needs "enemies" to create heroes.

The problem is, that "message" is all there is to this movie. Without the information on the back of the DVD case I could have never figured out who Gooding's character worked for, and it's still never made clear if he's working on behalf of the U.S. government or if there are rogue elements in the government who hatched this plot to keep Bin Laden alive.

The action scenes which are supposed to take place in Pakistan are also simply stupid. They don't clear a room in any way that's believable for anybody who's even just watched it done in other movies. The other action scenes that take place in DC are also done horribly. Characters die, sometimes in violent ways, and there's no real reason given for it.

If a director and screen writer want to make a movie that alleges the U.S. government is involved in some sort of conspiracy, at least make it believable. This one isn't. I guess Cuba Gooding Jr. needed the cash because I can't see any reason why he should have liked this script, it's awful.

I could never figure out what happened first or next because the timeline goes back and forth during the whole movie. I could never figure out who Cuba Gooding was working for. Was he a soldier or a merc? Wasn't clear. If he was special forces, he needs to go back to school to learn how to clear a room. Also, don't they teach these guys about noise discipline? Why were they just yakking away in the middle of indian country like a bunch of newbs? Professional operators use hand signals.

This could have been an interesting movie but it just wasn't. The ENGLISH closed captions did not match or came WAY AFTER the actors spoke their lines, making it impossible to watch. If you are deaf or hearing impaired do not bother to rent or purchase this film.
I like Cuba Gooding Jr but this was a big disappointment.

If you need to think the worst about the US government, this movie is for you. The premise that high officials including the president are in collusion with Osama Bin Laden and that government assassins roam the country killing citizens Putin style is abhorrent. That said the movie is simply not believable. The action scenes came from the imagination of one who has never been near combat. I like Cuba Gooding, but he demeaned himself by being part of this outrage. I gave it one star because nagative stars are not an option.

I selected 1 star, only so that nobody would think that I'd forgotten to select an overall rating. But it really deserves zero stars.

This movie is awful. I'm a fan of Cuba Gooding, and that's the reason I decided to rent it even though there are no reviews on the box (not even from obscure critics).

The plot is a joke (more on that next paragraph), there's no action (don't be fooled by the cover), there are no special effects, there's nothing worth seeing. The dialogue is sophomoric, the acting is way below average, and the directing/editing are what you'd expect from a first-year film student at a bad film school. In fact the whole thing seems like something a few kids put together borrowing their dad's video camera and taking $400 out of their college funds to budget to film.

The plot consists of Gooding, a special operative, who has flash-backs to a recent mission, where his job was to apparently sit in a brightly lighted gymnasium in combat gear with two other operatives (one of them JK Simmons of Spider Man, Lady Killers and Juno fame) and discuss war cliches. Lots of flashbacks to this. Then two of them get shot without even so much as a muzzle-flash or blood stain, just a pop and they slump over. Then in-between flashbacks, federal agents are trying to kill Gooding -- for no good reasons except some embarrassment over the mission, which is not explained -- he ends up getting shot, and is saved by a quick-mart owner who sews up his wound, and gets him involved in a boxing match the next day. Gooding has a love interest that isn't connected to the story in any way. There's some blues-bar involved in the begining and end, but like everything else in the movie, there is no reason provided, no connection.
