While on his quest, Gary encounters old friends back home in Colorado, new friends he makes in Pakistan, the enemies he makes at the CIA -- and even God and Osama themselves.

    I wonder if the real Gary Faulkner was offended by Nicolas Cage's portrayal of him? I think I would be. But nowhere near as offended as God must've been when she found out she was being played by Russell Brand.

    Based on an outrageous (but true) story, Army of One is a lighthearted comedic satire. When middle-aged handyman Gary Faulkner receives a message from Jesus to find and capture Osama Bin Laden he starts planning zany ways to get to Pakistan, from sailing to hang-gliding, and begins his quest. Nicolas Cage and Russell Brand lead the cast and give good performances; especially Cage, who's perfect for playing such an eccentric character. However, the writing is kind of weak; as the plot is hard to follow at times, with various hallucinations, dreams, and time jumps. Also, Gary is such an over-the-top character that it can be hard to sympathize or relate to him. Army of One is a fun film, but it has its problems.

    Nicolas Cage finally teams up with a team of interesting filmmakers which might come as a shock. This is not the usual poor Cage movie and is probably a sign he hasn't lost that acting magic after all. The film is funny at times and the Gary character is well grounded at times which keeps the character from going further of the wall. The final third is clunky and over the top but I enjoyed the rest of the film. Cage was the core of the film and kept this from being just another VOD title. Great cast gives everything with a Brand appearance that is funny and never over stays its welcome.

    I am not sure what surprised me the most. That this is a true story or that this is actually a decent Nicholas Cage film. As interesting as it is stupid, the fact that this is real just adds to the whole beggar's belief aspect of it. Despite that, this is still more enjoyable than you may think.
