...an odd movie that falls in between the cracks of dramedy and military satire. While it has a fine cast and some terrific moments, this story of an experimental U.S. military unit with allegedly psychic powers never really gets off the ground.

Which is, more or less, the point of the film. It's a movie that apparently finds something trite with extremity in content, regarding both satire and 'dramedy'. It's ultimately light-hearted and fun; basically a-political, this movie was refreshingly mature in its presentation of a very absurd story. It takes a certain kind of mind to appreciate a jocular film 'not getting off the ground'.
