A satisfying enough piece of giddy-up entertainment that raises a few passing questions about the American 'cowboy mentality' before ultimately deciding it's a lot more fun to simply eat your action movie cake than try to have it too.

Works pretty well as long as you don't pay too much attention to what anyone says and just let the action sweep you along.

Goes over the top and beyond in grandly heroic and even superheroic style, in a way unmatched by any war movie since Rambo: First Blood Part II.

An old-fashioned game of the cinematic cat-and-mouse, soldier-on-the-run variety.

First-time feature director John Moore masters not only the second-by-second intensity of the action sequences and the bleakness of the physical and political landscape.
