Liebesman wants you to feel trapped in the middle of the action. He wants you to feel the heat of combat on your cheeks. Apparently, he also wants you to barf up your popcorn, with a quaking camera aesthetic that's intolerable.
The "hand held" camera is great if used sparingly.Liebesman doesn't use it sparingly. Instead we get another docu drama feel film that give you a headache and makes you feel nautious. It wouldn't have hurt the film to put the camera on a tripod once in a while for contrast. But I don't think anything could help this cliched script that goes nowhere but up your funny bone. Great film for laughs.
