Elevator Pitch A retired Black Ops specialist is targeted by gunmen, and finds that he and others who were involved in an operation in Guatemala are at risk. He has to get the band together and take on the CIA to survive and to find out why they are being targeted.
Content Numerous set pieces involving shoot outs with automatic weapons, some explosions and one or two car chases. A bit of hand to hand combat. Just a bit of drinking, no nudity or sex but a bit of a snog at the end (sorry – a spoiler).
A View This was more fun the second time of viewing. It is just a bit noisy but I felt that the top grade cast did pretty well, and although I’m not much of a judge of acting, I thought they had chemistry together, particularly BW and MLP. So worth you time if you like action movies.
