When a movie has you cheering on a psychotic killer at the end of the movie then you know you just watched a master class in character work and acting.
Not a bad film by any means, but for me the stylistic choices and lackluster execution of the action scenes kept pulling me out of the movie. And when that keeps happening you really start to feel the two and a half hours runtime.
A good premise and a decent execution. At times it feels like it overstays it welcome slightly. Possibly it would have been better as a one hour episode of some television show. Or it might just have needed slightly better dialogue to fill those lulls. Beyond that it makes the most of the material it has with a good build of overall tension, although the more military inclined viewer will probably find a fair number of things to grind their teeth over. Biggest letdown would be the ending. Not that I didn't like it, but it was telegraphed from miles away. It was so obvious how it would end I felt a little cheated when it was all over.
Long winded, tensionless and pretentious drivel.
While offering few surprises beyond the opening scene the film is certainly competently made. But in a movie like this you're doing something wrong when the most relatable and likeable character is the bad guy.
