John Stockwell directs this tense action drama documenting the covert mission undertaken by a US Navy Seal team to capture or kill Osama Bin Laden. After receiving intelligence that their quarry is hiding out in a compound in Pakistan, the CIA mobilise crack US Navy Seal Team 6 to train for a daring night-time raid. After arriving at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan, and being put through punishingly intensive training for their mission, the team learn that their target is Osama Bin Laden, codename: Geronimo. As they set out on the deadliest mission of their lives, the unit must come together in one final, all or nothing attempt to take down America's most wanted terrorist.

Same story as zero dark thirty and very good. Well acted and just as entertaining. You won't go wrong for £5

With such a important subject matter it can be very easy to go overboard with getting points across and losing the realism that I feel should be present with Military based features. Code Name: Geronimo is not a victim of this at all. It never felt like there was a wasted minute in the film, everything felt relavent and most importantly integral to the film. If you're looking for something unique it's production, a film that's well cast and overall does it's job perfectly then it's well worth going out of your way to see this, whether your a military aficionado or not - which I should note, I'm not.

This felt very made for TV. It watched more like a TV documentary or dramatisation as opposed to a film. Keep that in mind, don't expect anything more and you'll be able to sit through it quite happily.

However, if you're expecting a quality, action-packed Hollywood blockbuster or something akin to the vastly superior Act of Valour or Zero Dark Thirty you will be sadly disappointed. Just don't expect too much, imagine you're watching it on Channel 5 and you probably won't be too disappointed.

Also, be prepared for the usual U! S! A! Hoo-rah! approach and propaganda. Cut with real life news footage and Obama sound bites - along with cheesy, interview style, talks to camera from the Seal Team 6 members (or at least the actors portraying them) about what it means to be a 'warrior' - this film somehow manages to feel even more like a recruitment film for the US military than normal... And that's really saying something!

The director should have done proper homework. Film lacks attention to details. In the first few minutes of movie we see a guy dropping some kind of tracking device in the pocket of some terrorist, the calendar in the scene shows 2012 where as we were just told that the surveillance was happening in 2011. Second, the film failed to create a proper environmental ambiance of Pakistan. The colour of three wheeler rickshaw in the moving clearly give away the fact that movie was shot in India rather than in Pakistan. This is further reenforced when we see the car moving on the streets with signboards with name sounding India and written in Hindi or some other Indian language.

There were some elements regarding the personal lives of the main characters that might have distracted from the main basis of the story, but I thought all in all it told the story well including featuring three brave Pakistan nationals who were significant in helping track Bin Laden down, but have never before been acknowledged.
It probably is more for TV but I would equally have enjoyed it at the cinema.
Good watch!
