      Richard Low budget action movies abound but this one is actually based on true events of a really interesting story. Delivers on its promise and then some. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/12/24 Full Review Brian K Terrible movie. We turned it off about 20 minutes in. Very choppy and low end film. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/10/24 Full Review Lloyd S ALLAH AKBAR!!! BOOOM! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ This is more like a conedy than an action movie. Reminds me of Scary movie 4.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/02/24 Full Review John M I love Emile Hirsch and he was outstanding in Into The Wild, Lone Survivor and Alpha Dog...but this film was so poorly done and characters were not cast appropriately. Emile looked like a fish out of water trying to portray this character. I would expect so much more from him because I know he's talented. The acting was some of the worst, most lackluster and boring that I've seen to date. I could not even finish the movie. I fell asleep halfway through and I never fall asleep watching movies. Poorly filmed, poorly directed, poorly executed. This story had potential to be interesting and gripping .... but it failed miserably. I would not recommend. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/19/24 Full Review SaboFudge The story was good however the acting was atrocious. Terrible gunplay throughout and it's obvious there was no real training in how to look and act like you know what you're doing. The movie ended and it was lacking. The credits rolled and I felt like my time was wasted. I also wanted to add this, I never leave reviews. The acting in this movie was so terrible that I am leaving a review.

      Dennis Harvey Variety Feels very much like an American B-movie stab at turning Israeli anti-terrorist operations of 30 years ago into formulaic action fodder β€” without much action, even. Aug 16, 2023 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Doesn't raise any excitement, as it fails to build suspense. Rated: C+ Sep 2, 2023 Full Review Todd Jorgenson Cinemalogue ... never musters much suspense or intrigue despite a true-life backdrop that suggests both. Aug 18, 2023 Full Review Avi Offer NYC Movie Guru Yet another B-movie with a compelling premise, but lackluster execution that fails to generate suspense, thrills and intrigue. The Engineer makes Blown Away and The Siege look like a masterpiece. Aug 14, 2023 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation An important piece of recent history undermined in the telling by slack pacing and a film agenda that seems intent on changing the subject re: Israel today Rated: 1/4 Aug 10, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
