I loved the movie, great story, heart-stopping action, unexpected ending... why did you (when I say you I mean the people who wrote, produced and directed this movie) have to make that useless comment about French Canadians? Totally unecessary. If you care about all your fans and want them to keep watching, you should think that most French Canadians are bilingual. I absolutely love American movies, simply the best! But please stop making those useless jokes. They don't add to the plot, they just sour it for us. I was captivated watching this movie, until this comment came along. I still watched it to the end but I have to say, I'm disappointed. Thank you for maybe considering this matter.
Excellent movie! From opening credits to closing scene. Loved the story, the action, the characters. 5 out 5!
An interesting watch which gives glimpses of the hard contrast between two cultures. All intelligent meaning is lost by the end, however.
i dont think it was anti-islamic and how they are all terrorists and stuff...if you really understood what the ending was that...the fight will never stop...because both sides wont you know...
So! The reality is stretched. The truth is stretched. That's what I went to the movies for. OK.
If you just want to space out and watch flashing lights and explosions this movie will suffice. If you need a story and realism this movie ain't it. Come on... Garner is tactically clearing rooms of terrorists by herself??
One of the worst movie of the year! what a waste of my $ & Time. If i could find a "zero" star, I will rate this movie "0"!
I dont know why they make this kind of movie. What we showing them i realy don't know. Time waste.
Not sure where the 1-star people are - they must have been at a different movie. LOVED the opening credits with graphics. Overall just an enjoyable movie to escape in.
I don't get how these FBI agents can kill 50+ people in another country and get away with it?? Even if they were bad people I call B.S. Imagine if a Saudi Police team started shooting people in NYC, even if they were bad people. Stupid American Propaganda movie, and Jennifer Garner needed to be sexier...boo!
Way under rated I believe- this was a great portrayal of opposing cultures, quite realistic.
i think this movie was a waiste of time i did not like it........
I loved this movie, its a great show and i would go and see it
great movie. enough action to satisfy me along with a great story.
Very great movie...
Incredible movie. A lot of action, great acting with a little humour.
Good plot, dull characters except for the Saudi police guy.
A VERY WELL MADE MOVIE !! it has so much reality in it, this is the life we're living now, this is the situation at this moment, and this movie brought some real good points in a very professional way i give it a 10/10 i watched it once and will watch it for the second time soon
Finally, a movie that involves Islamic terrorism that doesn't pander to idiot liberal self-loathing as if it's profoundly insightful! (Pretention, thy name is Clooney)
By far the most incredible movie produced... I almost want to say that this is not a movie, but reality. To those who have no appreciation for this movie, I say to you.. You have no idea what life is like for those people , whether it being Westerns or Middle Eastern, you have the privilege to say "it's ok" or "it sucks"... This has become a way of life, its unfortunate that you see this as just a "Movie". Learn and see what really happens in our world today as we know it!
Really slow only about 10 minutes of action.
Too much talking. Another stupid war movie. Not enough action. Waste. And Jen looked terrible.
Better then i thought, won't ruin the end, but it was a great slap at both sides
Wow! That is all I can say about this fantastic moivie.
Very balanced. Has its funny moments and its action-packed moments. Very good movie.
Not a complete waste of money but close.Unbelievable action scenes where the bad guys can't shoot staight and the 4 agents in the movie should be sent to iraq to end the war.Stay home and rent Paradise Now a much better film.
it could have been much better, the action was great but Hollywood's influence was very clear in the plot and the characters. Don't expect to be educated through this movie it is full of propaganda. But if you have nothing to do and u looking for a good action movie it is not bad.
Good Action flick. I did find the camera work a bit suspect, but I can get over that because I think the perspective was warranted. Why can't these movie people learn to shoot? They always spray 30 bullets and always miss!
Definitely a good but not great movie. The music instrumentals were a bit long and the dialogue rang untrue at time but overall a sold movie. As for the whiners who complain about the 'handheld' camera effect, the effect conveys the chaos that the participants are involved in and all told last about 15 mins in total so quit complaining if you can't handle a movie like this...stick to TV.
It was okay... Interesting beginning... yawn a lot in the middle... then action at the end. Then the movie was over. Entertaining but save your money for rental. 3/5
is a really weird movie...they say the movie is intense in the last 30 minutes it is but they made the trailer look good by showing only the last 30 minutes. Wast of money
Blurry, unfocused and constantly moving. The handheld camera made my wife and I big headache for the whole night. Save the money and watch other movie. Told my friends don't even brother buying this moive DVD in the future. One of the worst movie of this year.
absolutly the best movie ive ever seen. its realistic and very well played out!
When did a hand held camera become fashionable or give a more realistic picture? When is the last time you took a walk and everything you saw was blurry, unfocused and constantly moving. I would rather not be nauseas when I go to the movies. Stop filming with these damn cameras. I do not care how much money you save from filming. You are going to lose even more when everyone stops going the the movies.
What a waste. Wat could have been a great moie was completely ruined by the hand held camera effect. I was completely nauseas.
If I want to see a hand held camera film I can let my six year old show me hers for free!
My wife and I thought this movie rocked. I can't beleive it only has 3 starts here. Go see it.
Really bad. could easily have been a LOT better. Very much a formula cop type movie. Yawn.
This was an awesome movie - definitely well thought and plannced out prior to production. They definitely provide insight to what we don't see on CNN...
It was informful but a little bit unrealistic on the action.
silly ,,, screw it
what the hell is wrong with the people who are reviewing this movie!!?? are u guys on crack or something because clearly you don't know a masterpiece when you see it! This movie was beautifully done and accomplished what no other movie could: it was 100% reality. Damn you idiots who rated this one star!
One of the best movies I've ever seen. Must see for everyone.
I enjoyed this movie simply on the surface of being a nice little "actioner", but will somebody please tell these directors enough with the "shakey" cam!! It literally makes me ill. Good performances from the cast, especially the man who played the Saudi police officer who befriends Jamie Fox. Great fight scene with Jennifer Garner. Will make a great DVD rental.
