The way I review movies is often by the feeling I have at the end, after 'the experience'. I felt nothing at the end of this. I felt like 90 odd mins had passed, and I may as well had stared at a blank screen.
The actors were hammy, unconvincing and D grade. Wesley is a great actor, but the movie drags him down. I love wesley, but he is hurting himself.
The top-gun ripoff air scene has 2 of the worst aircraft explosion attempts I have ever seen. You feel like the camera just got switched to a cr@ppy 90's flight sim with some pixelated rubbish explosion on screen. The in cockpit views look like 'afterburner' fromt he sega master system.
Many scenes dont make any sense why they are there. A guy is chased by a tank, escapes, then get's shot by a 'super baddy henchmen guy'. You know the one, the prized second in command, but just like Under Siege 2, this one puts up no fight against our hero. He actually takes on wesley with a knife, not realising wesley has an uzi, needless to say he became a holey man.
There are some pov attempts at underlying themes, like the reltaionship between some female commander & snipes. it's awkward & confusing, and hammy. they open with this, and end with this. It's like someone thought about the script whilst watching a football game & drinking beer. And it appears they used a similar tact on budgeting.
In my TOP 5 of worst movies ever, which is a shame, cos I love Wesley Snipes (Demolition Man, White Man Can;t Jump, US Marshalls etc).
