Critic Reviews for Soldiers of Fortune

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

Korostyshevsky doesn't waste a lot of time getting from run-jump-shoot to duck-roll-cover and back again; the artillery decibel level isn't matched by any notable level of filmmaking craft or excitement.

For the cast, shooting the movie (in Ukraine) may have been a working vacation, but for viewers, watching it is an excruciating sentence of hard labor.

A talented cast is wasted in this sub-par, umpteenth variation on The Dirty Dozen.

Soldiers of Fortune has a good cast, and most of them try their best, but you have to wonder why any of them actually signed on for this lopsided movie.

Soldiers of Fortune is...hardly the fun throwback to the action films of the 1980s that one might've hoped for...

While the conclusion doesn't inspire much enthusiasm, Soldiers of Fortune carries a lot further than most of its ilk, providing a small dose of entertainment in a genre that typically elicits eye-rolls and yawns.

Audience Reviews for Soldiers of Fortune

A lackluster action film filled with cliche and implausibility. As much fun as it is to watch Slater do his ironic-cool-kid-attitude, it's too bad this wasn't a better vehicle for him and the rest of the great cast who, justifiably, appear to be calling it in.

A sharp, original, funny and thrilling action-packed movie. A wild, fast, furious and exhilarating thrill-ride packed with suspense, non-stop action and some surprisingly great characters and development. A wickedly entertaining action-thriller. A great all-stat cast, who all seem to be having a great time with this movie and the concept. Christan Slater is terrific. Sean Bean is excellent. James Cromwell is brilliant. Ving Rhames is fantastic. Dominic Monaghan is wonderful. A surprisingly great movie that's just an absolute blast. An explosive and awesome good-time. A smart and hard-hitting action flick. It`s City Slickers meets The Expendables.

0.5/10 This one beats Snow white for the worst movie of the year. Movie info says ' the mission goes horribly wrong', in real the whole movie goes horribly wrong.
