There is one big problem with this movie: the screenwriter is far stupider than they think they are. Either that or Executive Meddling
on a scale never before seen with a main blockbuster film. The actors, effects, setting, concept, cinematography, in-film technology, even the characters - all fine. But whoever wrote the script is almost as bad as Stephanie Meyer, which is the harshest insult for a writer that it is possible to muster. But it's bad. Some of the lines are so terrible that you can see the actors trying to figure out how to deliver them without sounding like complete fuckwits. Sienna Miller had to deal with the most horrific lines, poor woman, even though she tries to make them sound sincere and adult. Any characterisation was similarly poor and befuddled, but some of the plot twists and set-ups are even WORSE
! For example, the Joe base is infiltrated by drills that come in straight through the walls. Solid rock walls in the middle of the desert with no security, bolstering or even a proper security force patrolling them! And then the bad guys - whose characters are so painfully obvious that calling them the "Villainous Group Of Villainously-Posturing Bad Guys Whose Idea Of Taking Over The World Is Villainous... And Stupid" wouldn't in the least be redundant - walk completely without hindrance or even the tiniest alarm straight into the heart of the base and into the office of the guy in charge
with no opposition whatsoever. They could have blown up the base and no one would have noticed! The entire sequence was so pathetic and so embarrassing that I had to stop the movie and only came back to it because I was both ever so slightly drunk and needed something in the background while I had to spend two hours of grinding for an RPG. And things didn't get better from there.
I recommend that if you are drunk or high or incredibly bored, yes, watch this movie. But don't, whatever you do, spend more than a couple of dollars of hard-earned money buying or renting it. Not that I endorse or in any way condone doing anything like using Bit Torrent
or watching it by streaming illegally online through any one of a number of third-party websites that will offer you a range of flash video outlets....
