Conway, an ex-military man, travels to a remote farm where he finds his old friend Vet, a hardened man of war. He convinces Vet and his disbanded team of mercenaries to go on one last capture mission. The target is the defected Professor Black, a terrifyingly formidable scientific mind. Before the mission, the group form up and plan the operation ahead. Each of them are specialists in their chosen field. BB is a physical powerhouse, Frenik is a veteran bomb expert, Scope is a highly accurate sniper, and MLTDF (Most Likely To Die First) is the messenger of the team. As they reunite, former tensions from a previous operation resurface threaten the mission ahead. Immediately after landing communications are lost. A dangerous encounter with one of their former colleagues leaves them unsettled. As the operation deepens, they suffer gruesome attacks from a hidden adversary. As a bloody massacre ensues, suspicions and doubt plague the team. What was meant to be a simple extraction mission soon becomes a terrifying journey into madness. The chaos that follows leads them to a startling revelation.

SAS Black Ops - More like SAP - TOTAL RUBBISH.
Konban wa!
This excuse for a film left me totally incredulous and angry. How could anyone create such an abysmal load of tripe!
The acting was literally, non existant, the 'action' was hilarious, if not sad and pathetic. I have never, never experienced anything quite so bad before. Where did they get this lot from? My parrot lent out of his cage and was sick on my shoulder! My american bulldog covered his eyes with his paws and two flies constantly divebombed the TV in a kamikaze attempt to clear the screen.
I beat them to it, by switching off!
I reallycannot find words suitable to describe this total affront to film making. I think this is probably the WORST film I have ever seen or likley to see.
Rest in Peace - SAP Black Ops

The first time I tried to watch this I abandoned it after only 5 minutes. I had bought a professionally packaged DVD, with hot, gushy praise on the notes, something which led the purchaser to have an expectation of seriousness of some sort or another.

As an ex soldier I found the 'film' risible; I'm staying with my mother at the moment, and even *she* found the 'field craft' risible, and I couldn't help thinking that the characters were badly drawn stereotypes of civilian misperceptions of what it means to be a soldier; they reminded me of the simplistic, silly and childish beliefs on the same held by fellow students I met at university, on leaving the forces.

As another reviewer puts it the actors wandered through "dappled forest glades" and that is the point; no use of cover, bare white arms, light coloured clothing, too many different calibres of weapon, badly scripted dialogue that was worsened by atrocious acting even if it was meant to be tongue in cheek according to supportive review, which smacks IMO of an attempt at plausible denial. "Tongue in cheek"? It felt as if someone was trying to put /their/ tongue in *my* cheek, a smoker to be precise. Satires frequently work, but only if credibly done. The effects were substandard in comparison to the serious work people tout on YouTube as a means for attracting industry attention. Satire or not there was nothing at all credible about this piece, except possibly the countryside, which did at least represent an improvement on 1970s cardboard sets and quarries.

Certainly the marketing and packaging were leagues ahead of the item itself, giving the impression that this was a serious piece of work, as did the blurb on the back of the wallet, and I quote:

"Breathtaking!

The picture on the cover does not represent the DVD. There are no night vision activities and no helicopter. This is basically a few chaps in a forest glade either adlibing the script or acting one badly for an hour and a half.
Totally unconvincing. I actually bought this DVD which was a waste of money. It's pathetic - how could anyone supply money to make this except that it can't have cost more than £1000. I'll avoid three wolves films in future.

Marketing does work. But not in a good way. Like a lot of others I was seduced by the snappy title, after all how bad could it be. I've seen loads of SAS movies but none as bad as this. Fair play if this is deliberately a low budget movie but I feel conned. I have to admit I did laugh at some scenes and stuck it through to the nonsense ending. Sorry cannot recommend at all.

Due to the film's synopsis (the description sounded good to me), I decided to rent it via "Lovefilm by Post".

Firstly, don't take this film too seriously (I learnt this within the first few minutes of watching) as it's obviously been done "tongue-in-cheek" (well...I assume it has!). Even if you do take the light-hearted approach to the film, you may well be tempted to give up on it well before the end, because the whole film (yes, I did watch the entire film!) does have an obvious "college-project/enthusiasts" feel to it. Also, the acting skills are rather basic, as well as the dialogue.

Having said all this, the one positive thing in the film is the appearance of June Bladon, who plays 'Goldie'. That did make things a little more bearable. :-)

So, to sum up, I will give the film one star for it's synopsis plus one star for the appearance of June Bladon. It's definitely a film not worthy of purchasing, and probably not worthy of renting or streaming, either!

This film doesn't take itself too seriously, there is clearly a tongue in cheek nod to Predator. Looking at the film maker's website (Stickmen Pictures) it is clear these guys are film enthusiasts, I guess making a film with no money limits your options!

The only thing that lets this down is selling it as a Hollywood style big drama, looks like they have been railroaded by the big money media guys. I much prefer the "Slaughter Is The Best Medicine" title.

When you watch it with the real context it is quite enjoyable, I've spent £8 on far worse, big budget films!

Well done folks, don't let the haters bring you down!
