I Wish I'd Stepped On A Mine Instead
-Spoilers, but it'll help you save almost two hours.-. Ughhh.... Positives:. I give the film two stars because the berber guy played by Clint Dyer is really likable. I'd rather have seen a film about him and his story by itself. . They do some transitions between scenes/hallucinations that involve the main character Mike the sniper taking a step a...
Movie so boring even the mine gives up
This movie is actually not that terrible. It is full of inaccuracies, mistakes and failures - but this seems to be quite common these days. I see not a big problem here.. The fundamental problem is insane, excruciating boredom of it. The guy basically stands on a mine for most of the length of the flick doing nothing but hallucinating. It is absol...
Badly researched and poorly executed
I was really looking forward to seeing this movie but as an ex serviceman myself I couldn't believe that there were so many mistakes in the first 15 minutes. So many that I just had to turn the film off. . Trained sniper won't fire because it's a wedding, . Trained sniper given away by lense flare, . Walking through the desert no hats, . Going on ...
This isn't an action movie, nor does it claim to be.
If you go into this expecting war action, you'll be severely disappointed. Exhibit A: the low ratings of some reviewers here.. This isn't a war movie or an action movie. It's the story of a man facing his inner demons in the context of war. I think the directors did a phenomenal job creating a true thriller with literally little action. Armie Hamm...
Water is wet, you can't have a movie that ignores reality
Sorry but the main setup of the movie is fatally flawed. Mines don't go click and if yous step on one it doesn't do nothing until you step off of it, it goes off because once you step on it you will have tripped the mechanism that lights the fuse. It might not go off for a second or 2 depending on the timing of the mine but it will go off whether ...
Critics like always slamming good films just cuz they take a different approach than what they wanted.. The films revolves around this marine who is stuck in a land mine and while there is not much to do on that situation, the film follows along with the metaphor of "Man stuck on his own path" and he needs to learn to move on.. I found it interest...
Don't waste your time
I immediately stopped watching after about 10 minutes when a supposedly trained sniper got caught when his scope seen flaring. I mean, seriously???? How stupid is that??? Anyway, read all the reviews and thankfully did not waste any time watching it. Good trailer though but its a shame it was not good. ...
When you know whats coming!! its kind of boring
It was too obvious, it did not have any surprisingly turns ore twist of any kind. And the main actor is to typical American patriot, i go to war and i don't know why, i am a soldier and so on.. And all the time you know whats coming next, and that makes it boring.. waste of time if you are not very narrow and just want to waste time and eat popcor...
You have to move on
Mike (Armie Hammer) is a quiet special ops sniper assassin. Tommy (Tom Cullen) is his not so quiet spotter. Soon Mike finds himself alone in the desert with his foot stuck on a landmine. He stays there and talks to a Berber who asks all kind of "Why" questions. Mike stays put for days and examines his own life and demons caused by his father and h...
Give me back my time
Additionally to all the goofs and error that other people pointed, there is a stupid scene repeated to death with his wife (already mentioned, but as a good thing) that I couldn't understand why it was included. Anyway, I decided to finish it with a bit of FF in the middle. By the time the movie was at middle, it was too late to start another. . I...
