Critic Reviews for Special Forces
If you turned the sound off and removed the subtitles, you might actually think you were watching an old Hollywood shoot-'em-up.
"Special Forces" aims to inspire but ends up wallowing in melodrama.
It's not only Americans who can make leaden, video game-style exercises in dumb war action.
Could have been hilariously subversive if director Stéphane Rybojad had pushed it further.
Audience Reviews for Special Forces
It's solid entertainment. An action movie that almost hits all the right notes. A fantastic men-on-a-mission action flick with great characters and emotion. A strong, compelling, deeply moving and shattering movie that packed with heart and sacrifice. It's has elements of Tears of the Sun and Black Hawk Down. A sensational action-packed thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. It's terrifically shot and well-crafted and wonderfully performed. It has some great locations and scenery and is one of the more true to tactical and strategic methods of your standard military drama. It's packed with heart-pounding action, searing human drama and a great story. A captivating and enthralling knockout of a film. An unforgettable adventure. A tremendous all-star cast, who have great chemistry together. Diane Kruger is a revelation. Djimon Hounsou is magnificent. Benoit Magimel is terrific. An explosive and wickedly entertaining movie.
Enjoyed it, nthing spectacular but a lot better than some yank glory hunting version
kinda shaky story and sub par casting on a few parts but decent action scenes that looked like plenty of research was gone into the "how and what" these people do.
