Critic Reviews for Code Name: Geronimo
Triumphalism is avoided, but the Seals' macho talk and a brutal fight between the two competitors for leadership of the assault team strike a false note.
Code Name: Geronimo is a film whose defects are entirely balanced by its positive aspects.
As a thriller, it is cack-handed and boring, and as a drama it is badly acted and utterly incurious about what it was really like to be one of the soldiers who took part - relying abjectly on cliches.
The film like the operation is efficient, well-co-ordinated, dead-eyed.
A serviceable action thriller elevated by the presence of William Fichtner as a CIA agent leading the manhunt.
It's a workmanlike account of events that acted as a sort of universal closure for a gung-ho America which convinced itself that you really could wage a war against terrorism.
The lead-up is hokey and unconvincing, as the filmmakers strain to inscribe personality on a cast of ciphers through hackneyed backstories and substantial guesswork.
