they're baaaaack - that colorful team of Special Forces soldiers with, thanks to modern special effects and unlimited budget for more daring-do & demolition than ever.
In the words of their leader, "Overkill is underrated." So it would appear. With director/writer (with Brian Bloom) Joe Carnahan at the helm, you get - thanks to Mario Fiori's camerawork & James Price's visual effects - a cacophony of blazing destruction in the air & on the ground, with wild helicopter chases, exploding buildings & war vehicles, a scattering of glass - all accompanied by ear-splitting sounds & the never ending shouting of the team's handful of miracle-operators who are capable of out-doing all the Marvel Comics action heroes without barely a scratch. It's far from realistic (save the set & costume details which are impeccable), but then it was never meant to be.
It's a poor man's M.A.S.H. minus the clever repartee, blend of raw humor & subtlety, and the brilliance of Robert Altman's execution. When the statement is made, "He's a cartoon character," the point is accurately applied to everyone & every action here.
