Has anyone else seen this movie? I was blown away. It was short enough to keep the action continous and keep the viewer addicted. I went with my buddy because there is no way my wife would ever go...if you're looking for a good guy flick give this a look.
I went last night with (pardon the name dropping) Ernie Langdon and Gordon Carrell from the S&W pistol team, along with a good friend of ours who is currently a USMC Major. Unanimously enjoyed the movie.
As we were leaving the theater we found ourselves in a group of Arabic-speaking young men who were chatting excitedly about the movie, as well. Which raised two good points: (1) different people enjoyed different parts of the movie, and (2) were were glad all four of us were carrying ... and yes they were all Smiths. 8)
Ernest came in 2nd CDP Master. If this Nationals proved anything, it's that the day of the 1911's reign as King of .45's is over for practical/tactical guns. CDP Champion was shooting an XD, 1st Master a Glock 21SF, and 2nd Master was shooting an M&P 45.
In the FWIW Dept., Ernest is also one of the best all-around pistol instructors I've ever met. He doesn't do much teaching anymore given his other responsibilities at Smith but if you ever get a chance to take a class from him, do it. Unlike most people in the field, Ernest has proven his expertise with double-action, single-action, and striker-fired guns.
I went to see it last night. Ok movie but not realistic. A AK with a rail from one of the bad guys? gun that shoot forever without reloading?Same old hollywood.in some of the explosions,the concusion should kill you.
The movie is just a snapshot of the bigger issues. The gist is that our interests in the region have everything to do with oil. But it shows that we really don't have friends over there. We co-exist with some where its mutually beneficial, but at the root of it we really don't like each other, and some downright hate us. That point hit home with the closing scene in the movie. I was glad to see that our enemies were sufficiently portrayed as such.
My wife and I went to see it last weekend and really liked it. Of course we both like movies with lots of shooting. It's the 1st movie I've been to in a very long time since I dislike most Hollywierd actors.
