Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. What a piece of shite.
Picture Nicolas Cage trying to do an impersonation of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone at the same time. Picture John Malkovich trying to do an impression of Anthony Perkins and Anthony Hopkins. Picture John Cusack trying to do an impression of Steven Segal and Al Pacino. Picture a scriptwriter trying to do an impression of Ray Showgirls Esterhauz. Get the picture?
This is "shoot hit kill bleed" porn for boofy blokes who like explosions and aren't too hot on picking up plot holes, shallow characterisations, bad dialogue and other minor irrelevancies like that. It's a good, trashy flick for the boys, which even manages to fit in a damsel in distress (for heroics) and a girlie fag (ostensibly for realism, but really for humour). It's heavy on family values and glorious American history. It's a piece of crap, but an entertaining piece of crap, if you like this sort of thing.
