If you are not laughing from that last sentence let me be clear: Bill Plympton quilts loving madness and sentimental debauchery into stories of love conquering all over a Salvador Dali fart joke. Madness is on the menu alone, but the spice to this madness for this film is morality questions. In that, I find comfort as I laugh at faces melting and boobs flying.
Marshall M (ag) wrote: It would be easier to swallow if this was an adaptation of a soldiers memoir. The fact that this is sheer fiction opens it up to harsher judgement for its failure to express the moral complexities of U.S. military intervention in African politics, its unfaithful depiction of level of severity required by Navy SEALs, and the lack of agency or depth it assigns virtually all of the African characters. That said, I've never been one to let morality, reality, or pathos ruin a good action movie... but sadly the director seems dead set on doing that for me by refusing to revel in the action scenes. He handles the storytelling with all the reverence due to a documentary about war heroes... which this isn't.The dialogue is uninspired, but usually believable even if the characters themselves are not. The cinematography is adequate for conveying the repetitive jungle scenery. The acting is just adequate as well, aside from Bruce Willis who turns in a performance bordering on excellent. The attempts at conveying the inhumanity of humanity actually seem to be a bit naive. I was expecting the bad guys to do a lot worse than it ever shows them doing. When the bad guys are allowed to do their worst and it isn't as bad as what I expect... the film probably isn't gritty enough. The cliched quote before the credits was as unnecessary as the stock African music they insisted on playing over every establishing shot. Overall, the film manages to maintain tension and keep you invested in the characters for two hours, leaving you with the sense that you've been entertained, drained, and manipulated for little reason.

Lorraine S (us) wrote: This is a most amazing film which shows that the USA is no different to th LRA in that they have child soldiers in training. I am totally disillusioned with the USA after the big fuss try made about th LRA when they have their own LRA tactics in their country. One would not expect a first world county to be party to such disgusting child abuse.

Tristan M (mx) wrote: I do like Sean Penn, and this movie wouldn't be the same without him at all. He is a very talented actor, and played an mentally disabled man trying to raise his daughter in a great performance in I am Sam, and I feel this movie also has a similar feel due to his presence and very impressive acting. He plays a retired Goth rockstar, who is a very interesting character who I can only explain as depressed, and he does a fantastic job and steals the show. But unfortunately it really only him that makes this movie work, as the basic story although interesting lakes much excitement or entertainment. We do have a few laughs, and awkward moments with people he meets, but it could have been filmed and shown a little differently I feel, it just needed something. The script is good, and the story is good, and Penn is great but it's lacking a good pace I guess. I can't really say what it needs or is missing the most though, but it could have been done better. Maybe it's a lack of real Nazi hunting other than asking around for a German, but this wasn't a problem and the story isn't actually that bad. The ending was kinda weird, like watching the old man walk out naked in front of his house in the middle of literally nowhere, it looked like the salt flats, and Cheyenne drives away without killing him. It's not inconclusive, it's just a weird scene that doesn't make much sense to why he made the old man do it, as it wasn't really humiliation as only him and one other Nazi hunter saw it happen. Also the fact that Cheyenne drives a big crew cab Dodge truck is interesting as it really does not fit his character or appearance. Overall a ok movie, Penn saves it, but everything around him just kinda falls flat unfortunately.
