“There were times when I wondered if this film was actually a subtle parody of patriotic action movies, because surely nobody could be this shameless about it.”
It's certainly not a bad movie, but the filmmakers way overcomplicated things, adding pointless political commentary and contrived twists, creating tons of plot holes to annoy Mr. Mendo. Here are his biggest nitpicks!
