Afghanistan. Buddies left behind. Michael Madsen dullifying my screen. Plot so thin it could be a runway model. Occidental Asians. No stars so far. Up side? Steve Bacic is a very beautiful and talented human being. Five stars for that lovely creature's mere appearance and dogged attempt to carry the whole damn movie. If you want a well-plotted action flick, you're S.O.L. If you want tall, dark Canadian eye-candy (who, ironically, does the best, if not ONLY, acting in the entire flick), put it in the player, set to "repeat", and back over the remote. Don't waste your time sending e-mails or letters to the scriptwriter/studio/FX folks/"fight choreographers"(a claim which takes a big, clangy pair o'brass ones to even MAKE. If this is how "Real" Navy SEALS fight, we're screwed!)/makeup/wardrobe/food services/random extras/etc. Send hearty "Thank You" notes to whichever awake-at-the-switch person that cast the only actual talent (and isn't even LISTED in the "Who's in this thing, anyway?" category): The exceptionally versatile Steve Bacic (Yes, I already said he's easy to look at. So are Michaelangelo's statues, but they can't act. He CAN. This guy's gotta be the most underrated actor in North America), and if so inclined, a congratulatory note to his Signifigant Other on making such a talented and attractive catch. Zero stars for the flick, five stars for the "scenery", five stars for said scenery's heroic attempt to carry the whole freakin' show (while not disolving into paroxysms of laughter that his character's biggest problem isn't Bin Ladin, hostile locals, or poppy farmers upset that the damn Americans just stomped through their crops again and are even now dipping pitchforks in camel dung to go skewer the interlopers, but the ghost of GHENGIS KHAN seems to have severe P.M.S.!). Averages out to three stars. As with all, um, wobbly? plotted films, try watching it again after a water tumbler full of ouzo, it'll improve.
