It sold itself as an action flick, and that's what it was. The acting talent was well-cast, the pacing was the tightest I've seen in some time, and the film took a pragmatic approach to everything instead of moralizing. Each major character, and most minor characters, have clearly-defined reasons for doing what they do, and it's even clearly laid out why the good guys are so easily able to plow through the enemy thugs like they do; for example, the American ambassador is clearly stated as being a combat veteran with about 20 years' experience under his belt, whereas many of the Belgian soldiers seemingly have no combat experience at all. It's the kind of film where you just sit down, grab your snacks, and enjoy the ride. Cool! tesuji 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
