1.0 out of 5 stars how can a movie be this bad??, 6 Aug 2012
This review is from: Mercenaries [DVD] (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.
