great movie whit wonderful efects
great tactical realism, awesome job by technical advisor eric haney. Excellent portayal of how soldiers are political pawns. This is one of my favorite movies, along with Heat and Apocalypse Now. If you are a fan of slickness and realism in terms of action scenes, and you didn`t like this movie, its prolly cuz u think too slow to figure out whats going on. shame on you. watch it again. I`ll just buy it.
Waste of time-Val Kilmer`s acting was horrible(usually you can count on him to be great). It sounded like it would be a rivoting plot but not much excitement here at all. Ed O`neil gave a strong performance but he wasn`t on screen much.
Best thriller in years. Constant series of surprises and twists.
Exactly what eveybody else is saying. I was laughing all the way through at the horrible dialog, and when I wasn`t laughing I was sleeping from sheer bordom. Stay away from this movie if you like good cinema.
Definitely the worst movie I have seen in years!!
This movie was horrible, quite possibly one of the worst movies I`ve ever seen! Absolutely attrocious dialogue! it sounds like a good movie, but the acting is absolutely brutal!
a pleasant surprise..lots of twists and turns.
looks like some people go to movies for different reasons than others...I don`t go to see a "Mamet Film" because the "actor is cute" or "the acting was good!" I go because Mamet films have so many wonderful twists & turns that keep you guessing, which is soooooo refreshing with so many FORMULAIC scripts floating around!!
i completly hated it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A potentially good plot ruined by cheesy acting and bad screenwriting. See this if you are in the human slavery business and want some tips as to what not to do.
Possibly the worst movie I have seen in awhile. It was like a long trailer-teasers of plot development, but no one concept stuck around long enough to develop any tension. Definitely worth missing.
i just went to see spartan. it totally sucked! was worth what i paid for it. i`ll give you that val kilmer was cute.
I loved this movie balanced action and emotion very well. I thought Val Kilmer`s performance was remarkable but of course not surprizing as he is an amazing actor.
The acting was terrible and it seemed like half the movie was edited out. I`d skip this one if I were you.
It was a great movie
It Was So Cool and Awsome to think that happens in the world
Not amazing but pretty good
