A big fat zero for plot. Three stars for action sequences. Wasted the talents of various actors and actresses.

I stayed awake for the whole Movie! That's how I know there wasn't really a plot. It's really fun to watch Marky-Mark in action, and since it didn't take any energy to figure anything out, I just relaxed until the feeble ending and wondered why they screwed the movie up so bad.

Most "shoot-em-ups" are pretty pointless, but this one seems to be sort of self-referentially pointless, since the whole point of the 22 mile long shoot-em-up is, well, pointless ...

After about 30 minutes the character played by Wahlberg, and his over-acting, start to get onto my nerves. What a mess of a film. For a good thriller try Sicario instead. A waste of my time.

The best thing is the Bogota setting (first major Hollywood movie filmed in Bogota per Special features) and the fast moving black-op Overwatch mission which is to transfer a walk-in informant (the package) from the US embassy to an airplane at an airstrip 22 miles away. Not a bad story but the ending could have been easily made more spectacular instead of an afterthought twist (which is not.) 4 stars for the story but 2 stars for how it is told.

They were tricked and defeated in the end because he was a triple agent. So if you want to waste 1.5 hrs rooting for the good guys and then losing, watch this movie.

The Berg-Wahlberg movies keep getting more and more ridiculous. This one is incoherence at its finest.

Entertaining, but nothing else.

We live in a new world. These are bloody times. Evil exists. Horror exists. The great game continues. If you have patience, you wouldn't have expected it to end, so... Most governments have very little patience. What is a government anyway? Does a government have a heartbeat? Does a government have ten fingers and ten toes? A government is capable of vengeance. Is a government capable of slaughter?

The definition of a war zone is an interesting thing. Being a cop in Baltimore might be every bit as dangerous as being a cop in Baghdad. The cops played the politicians and the politicians played the cops and I don't think anyone ever knew who is on whose side.

You ever read Hiroshima, by John Hersey? Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, essay on the atom bomb. 'Cause John Hersey wrote about the survivors, all right? He wrote about how he reached out to take the hands of women in the wake of the bombing in Japan and their skin slipped off like gloves. And then you know what happens next? Your kidneys fail. Your lungs collapse. You cannot breathe, you cannot think. Your thyroid just evaporates, all right? Then your lymphocyte cell count takes a nose dive.
===
Caesium-139 is Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined. Only you don't need sophisticated planes to place it. You only need a kid who can empty an envelope on a sidewalk.

The end of an operation is euphoric. It's placing that last piece in the puzzle.
===
Your job is not to predict tomorrow based on yesterday. That's what academics do. Your job is to prevent the end of tomorrow by using your brains and your imagination.
===
And let's not forget about your absolutely medieval moral compass and nasty thirst for bloodshed for which there has been no legal repercussion because you do not operate under any rule of law.

Do I believe in Santa Claus? No. Tooth fairy? Uh-uh. Did I believe that my three ex-wives meant it when they said that they'd love me forever?

Warriors don't wear uniforms anymore. There are no uniforms in war now. The little girl that looks like your little sister's hippie friend on holiday might be a weapon of mass destruction. The start of an operation is just like the start of anything else. Everything could go right. Everything could go wrong. Diplomacy is option one. Military's option two. When option one and option two are abandoned, there is only one thing left. Which is us.
===
I think there is no defense against someone willing to die. Someone capable of cultivating our trust by offering us the one thing that we want, and the one thing that we need, that's the real weapon of mass destruction. A killer who looks like a hero. The great game continues. Today was yours. I'll see you tomorrow.
