NOT voyeuristicBy a customer from his front room , 27 Oct 2003
[Highly rated reviewer]Horrific and terrifying violence, but this is not a slasher pic ... it's gritty realism serves as a graphic illustration of the difficulty of subduing a hostile population with US military might. Bush & Blair might have paused for thought a bit longer before committing themselves to Iraq if they had these images fresh in thier minds.
Scott keeps the tension and action moving, so that at the end you feel wrung out and drained.

Somewhat ConfusingBy flickwitch (49 reviews) from Hinckley , 01 Jul 2009I didn't inten to watch this as I rented it for my husband but I happened to be home at the same time and sat down to watch it with him. However, I found it hard to follow, even getting some of the characters mixed up. I wasn't even sure what country they were in or why. I suspect some of the characters felt the same way as their leader wasn't particularly impressive to my mind. If this is post-9/11 propaganda to make the US look good then it failed to do that job.
interestingBy a customer from Edinburgh , 02 Jun 2009An exceptionally violent movie, that, as usual, depicts the Americans as heroes and the people they gun down as violent, soulless terrorists. I have no idea how it got a '15' age restriction, I found it far too violent for that. I mean, James Bond gets a 15 age restriction but James Bond does not depict that level of explicit violence. It was, however, interesting, from the point of view of showing the historical circumstances and the results of military arrogance. Because of that aspect, and its depiction of the Americans as mortal, it has my respect. It seemed to show some flicker of recognition of a world beyond their own, in which everything is not just rosy. Not a movie for the kids, but easily bordering on being a classic.
Action PackedBy Daws (1 review) from Leeds , 11 May 2009The words 'action packed' were the definite words to use to describe this film. Action upon action, but in my eyes far too much of it. Beware if you have anything bigger than a 22' TV, because it will leave you disoriented, and quite perplexed as too what has happened. A little confusing at times and there seems as though the editting team have been hard at work cutting random bits of the film which need to be there. Overall, if you love action and cheesy one-lners this is the film for you.
