1.0 out of 5 stars how can a movie be this bad?? 6 Aug 2012
Format:DVD
I have just finished watching this mess, the movie really was amateur hour, I thought I would look at the making of to see the problems they had making the money stretch, getting the writers vision on screen etc....but with all the back slapping I did wonder if they had actually watched the end product. The fact one of the producers banged on about being an ex-soldier made me wonder why the field craft was so wrong....but did confirm why he was no longer in the ARMY.
I am really glad I didn't watch this with my ARMY colleagues as I would have been so embarrassed.
As an ex-sailor I hate movies that get the navy wrong and I can only imagine the comments real soldiers would have thrown at the TV watching this.
You do not watch these kind of movies expecting 100% realism as that can take the fun out of action movies but some form of logic would help...these so called mercenaries wouldn't have lasted five minutes behind enemy lines, I really do want the British film industry to flourish but on this show no one out there will be having sleepless nights about the British film industry making a belated come back, and if I never see another movie by this writer/director it will be far too soon, my best advice avoid like the plague and watch the wild geese or an episode of the Professionals again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mercenaries, yes; elite, no! 12 Mar 2012
By T
Format:DVD
Andy Marlow is an ex-SAS soldier of fortune? Really...? Blimey! Standards have been slipping at Hereford, then!

A US colonel in charge of a UN peacekeeping detachment in the former Yugoslavia sends in a team of "deniable operators" when the US ambassador and his glamorous assistant are lifted by a breakaway radical faction of ethnic-cleansing Serbs. The UN mandate does not allow for an incursion overtly by UN personnel so "an elite team of independent contractors" is hired and sent in.

From the start it's obvious a military consultant was not hired to assist with the film - if they did hire one they should get their money back and have examined his credentials a little more thoroughly! The team go half-and-half over having an AK-47 or an M-16 - so supposedly special forces-trained men can't share ammo if they get low; the real deal would all use the same weapon for just that reason ("individualism" is a myth, as the plethora of memoirs that came out of Stirling Lines in the noughties will bear out - and it's because of such widely-read memoirs and the rise and rise of McNab, Ryan, Falconer, et al that "busking it" on the authenticity in movies of this nature is really a no-no these days). They bimble around behind the lines at night, weapons in shoulders like the professionals they are pretending to be - but talking loudly to each other about gossip and not paying attention, unlike the professionals they are pretending to be. Discipline, focus, remaining covert and the chain of command all go right out the window when they see some civilians being readied for execution in a clearing, and it's not the only occurrence of that particular departure from "real life.

1.0 out of 5 stars Who cares who snores 3 May 2012
Format:DVD
Well, I picked this up on a whim and spent an idle hour or so watching it rather than thinking so, I'm not that gutted. But. But. But.

Other reviewers have made points about the tradescraft on display. Quite right. I suspect that me and three mates from work, none with military experience could have behaved rather more SF than the four guys acting the operators here. Unmatched weapons, no camo, loud talking, shouting, louder cocking of a suppressed weapon......

So. If you still want this, buy as cheap as you can.

Low Budget Film- definitely a mans film too much shooting and killing for me. Daylight Robbery was far superior by director Paris Leonti

Worth the 1.99 I paid -but only just!
I'm not even ex-services but I could only cringe at the lack of patrol discipline behind enemy lines, terrible personal concealment & the instant dropping of command structure & distraction of the task specified whilst acting 'humanely' in rescuing civilians: proper 'mercenaries' or Special Forces types just don't have these kind of maudlin consciences otherwise they could just not function. Features a 'token' black & a 'token' feisty woman & even 'John Wayne' in sunglasses as the rather obvious British plant amongst the cardboard cutout baddies replete with eyepatch. Would have thought the inexperienced lady Aide given the AK47 would have found the recoil & upward tendency a bit much for accurate fire (?)
Ranks along with 'Combat Zone', 'Battle Over Normandy' & 'Battle Recon -Call of Duty' as the worst modern war films ever & reminiscent of several 70's style forgetable WWII film with Americans with long hair & Vietnam era tanks shown in afternoons on Sky 'films for men' channel.
Would suit Poundland only if it were 50p!
Don't bother if you are a serious war film fan. For serious Bosnian type war films, see 'Saviour'; 'No-Man's Land' or even the less believable but good all round action film ' 5 Days of War'
I sincerely hope the very highly paid mercenaries guarding US industrialists etc in Afghanistan are better qualified than this lot!

Amateur dramatics. All pose and swagger. Actors with no idea of how the real guys behave. Buy Act of Valour instead. Read more

A `real` SAS trooper would be cringing with embarasment at this awful film.
