More or less what I expected, along with videogame comparisons throughout the reviews and comments.
Well let's be frank, considering the reviews so far, one has to wonder as to why this sucker wasn't simply named CALL OF DUTY: THE MOVIE.
Probably would've made more money too and serve the same purpose (nearly 2 hr. long recruitment ad).
Rottentomatoes disagrees with the premise of this thread.
liberal hollywood film critics hate Real Americans
So, shamefully historically inaccurate? I love Bridge On The River Kwai but it is horrificly false.
And, my dad died in Vietnam, which is certainly a step up from fighting in that hellish conflict and then coming home to be spit on and cursed at by liberals. All of this as an immigrant. I love this country!
Yeah. That's pretty spot on. Run Silent, Run Deep is pretty inaccurate, too. Still, I enjoyed the movies like I enjoyed this one.
I have to admit, I'm not at all surprised by the response here.
Sorry about your dad. No one should grow up without a father.
Still never seen this movie and probably never will but the whole "real Navy Seals doing real combat maneuvers" was a hellova marketing hook that it's stuck in my head, at least.
Great necropost, Albert.
It's a terrible film so full of tone-deaf jingowistic wankery that you're surprised the cast could finish it, as they'd surely be blind.
The whole point of that movie was to watch Professional Badasses be Professional Badasses.
I got this mixed up with the DeNiro/Cuba Gooding Jr. movie Men of Honor. I am disappoint.
Notice how the SAS don't do films where their higher tier of professional awesomeness is on display? Yeah.
<inhales sharply>... yeah.
Why do SAS wear gas masks non-stop in video games? In my experience that would be quite impractical. Plus in R6 Siege the gas masks offer no protection at all. And sledgehammers are lame when the Americans get thermite explosives.
They're games, made by Americans?
Ubisoft is in France.
It's a fairly stupid question, I don't know why you're expecting much from the answers.
