Product Description

Product Description

Christian Slater, Sean Bean and Ving Rhames lead a stellar cast in this explosive, action-packed adventure. Slater stars as Captain Craig McCenzie, a disgraced special forces officer hand-picked to lead the ultimate extreme vacation. Five super-rich thrill-seekers have paid a premium to have themselves inserted into a real-life military mission: delivering weapons to the besieged rebels of an island stronghold. But when the plan backfires and all hell breaks loose, McCenzie and his squad of amateur soldiers find themselves fighting a furious battle to survive.

The film opens with Craig McCenzie (Christian Slater) leading a secret reconnaissance mission in Afghanistan. With the life of a fellow soldier (Freddy Rodríguez) in danger, Craig ignores orders to save him from our own CIA man Carter Mason (Colm Meaney). Rather than get a medal, they are dishonorably discharged from the service. They have fallen on hard times.

Our heroes are then recruited by the lovely Cecelia (Oksana Korostyshevskaya) to lead a group of mercenaries to act as freedom fighter for a mineral wealthy island known as Snake Island (Black Sea?) against a ruthless colonel (Gennadi Vengerov) his equally ruthless daughter (Sarah Ann Schultz) and his arch enemy Carter Mason. However there is a catch to this whole thing. Not only must he free the island but do so while escorting 5 millionaires who want to "play soldier" for various reasons. They are funding the revolution. Thus a play on words of "Soldiers of Fortune."

The 5 guys are:

Dimidov (Sean Bean): He is originally from the island. He is in the mining business and already knows how to handle weapons.

Grimaud aka Grim Reaper (Ving Rhames): An African general who knows how to fight. He sold the colonel weapons and he is late on his payment.

Sin (Dominic Monaghan): Video game designer who makes violent video games. His psychologist recommended reality. For added measure he has a broken leg.

Haussman (James Cromwell): He has done everything in life. His goal is to die so his kids get his fortune and not his wife (Ekaterina Suslova) known only as #5.

Vanderbeer (Charlie Bewley): Runs a successful Wall Street hedge fund that made money when everyone lost. He just wants the bragging rights.

A movie that seems to get lambasted on various websites, Soliders of fortune is a complete nonsense movie, albeit the idea of rich paying to be in there own little war does have potential, however taken as a piece of B movie boys own adventure its harmless fun.

The action is not blockbuster, but pretty constant, the island setting a beutiful location and scenery well photographed.

Of course then theres the cast, which is perhaps what throws people, they've all either starred in cult shows, award winning films or mega budget blockbusters and here are slumming it in an straight foward A Team (the series)
style adventure.

That said its not that much of a surprise, most have mixed in the odd B movie in there time.

Anyone saying worst film ever made clearly hasn't seen enough films, theres much, much worse, this film is coherrant, well lit, well filmed, has a half decent music score and the overall direction is not bad.

This is not a great movie, but its fun and does exactly what it says on the tin.

The title is no joke but I thought the movie was...! Honestly, there were times when I was asking myself if this WAS a spoof movie but no, it is an awful, low-budget attempt at an action movie.
The premise to the plot actually has some merit: mega-rich thrill seekers pay to go to war under the protection of seasoned, veteran professional soldiers. However the execution of the story is, frankly, terrible. Lame action scenes, with a mini-tank, a few incendiary explosions and a pathetic sea-doo chase sum up the "highs" of this offering. The cast might suggest some good acting will turn up at some stage but you're left waiting for that right til the end credits. In fact, the characters are mis-cast quite badly: Ving Rhames as an african arms-dealer? Where did he find that accent!? Sean Bean does not convince as a playboy tycoon and Christian Slater just doesn't cut it as a dishonourably discharged Captain having to deal with and train a bunch of spoiled,pampered wannabes... there is just no substance at all to any of the characters.
I'm afraid there is nothing at all to rescue this movie. I've never heard of the director but it occurred to me that maybe the cast members all owed him some major debt and he got them to pay up by appearing in this tripe. Avoid like the plague!

when it comes down to it, the plot was fairly predictable, the dialogue cheesy and i doubt oscars will be handed out but, if your looking for a simple easy to watch sunday afternoon "shoot em up" with some recognisable actors; then this film will fit the bill nicely.

I watched this film on netflix. Ok it wasn't the best war film you'll ever see,not exactly Full Metal Jacket. But not exactly the worst war film out there. Bit of a B movie but a fairly decent watchable one. Worth a watch, not a bad film.

By Bob Salter TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 24 Feb. 2013
Format: DVD
This is a film that really left me scratching my head big time. Some films seem to scramble up the heights of epic ineptitude with effortless ease, and they are usually very easy to spot. This one seems to have been made as a spoof of a spoof movie. Almost as if it takes that tasteless Ben Stiller spoof "Tropic Thunder", one ludicrous step beyond. The question is was the director Maxim Korosteshevsky, I think I spelt that right, deliberately aiming to make a movie so bad it is hilariously funny at times. Judging from the fact that the film was not even screened in advance for critics and the films publicists didn't even bother to provide any advance information, the answer to that question is most likely no. The film provides us with the most incredibly cheesy dialogue to come along in a long time. "Let's go kill some bad guys", "that'll pucker your rear end" and "The Grim Reaper always gets paid", are a few such titbits.

Christian Slater is the ex special forces operative in charge of a bunch of bored millionaires who want to experience ultra realistic war games. The intention is to let them have fun but not to put them in harms way, but whoever did the risk assessments for this one missed a few little items. They end up on an island in the Black sea called Snake Island. Yup that's what I said 'Snake Island', which is controlled by a panto villain nasty dictator called Lupo, who likes kiling the locals and any dumb millionaires stupid enough to land on his island. Things then go rapidly downhill, with silliness on a grand scale. We get the strange sight of that nice farmer from "Babe", James Cromwell, turning into a deadly killer despite his clearly advancing years. Ving Rames as the African arms dealer known as the Grim Reaper provides the best comic turn of the lot.
