(ru) wrote: This is destined to become a cult classic and really is screaming to be played in a theater for a midnight movie with a like minded audience. It's like Fellini, Jodorowsky, Lynch and the Wachowskis got together to make a visually arresting bad action movie.

(gb) wrote: An incredible fast paced suspenseful movie with an even better soundtrack.

Little bit of a spoiler here, but the only scene that really stood out to me, I can't even remember it too well, but it's where Gibson gets emotional and says he should have died with the soliders he was leading in battle. Through the movie I kept getting annoyed at everyone hiding and getting shot every time they moved, but Gibson is walking around all casual and not getting shot at all. I was thinking the movie is trying to suggest something stupid like Gibson is such a good solider he knows how to avoid bullets or some nonsense, but in that scene I realized that he did have a death wish and its his acceptance of death that made him so brave and calm compared to everyone else. He wasn't dodging bullets, he was trying to get hit.
