Goofs

The Sergeant (Chris Obi) has a mixture of ribbons from the Air Force Basic Training Ribbon (on top row for God's sake) to the Bronze Star (on the position of the least ranking -- it is the 20th military ranking of all military awards and is usually found on the top (highest ranking) row. There are other service and auxiliary ribbons that could be from JrROTC to Police/Fire to Foreign. All it takes for wardrobe to set these ribbons correctly is to look up the proper military service "Order of Preference." See more »

Far too many shill accounts on IMDb to consider reviews honest on new movies
25 May 2016 | by allenandginterSee all my reviews

Well, I knew it was a long shot that a movie with under 20 reviews ( It has 29 at the writing of this) was an honest review. Friends of cast,cast, employees of production companies, etc. I get it though. A falsely inflated review get's you to spend that cash only to be face palming 2 hours later. The Cinematography was solid. No back yard iPhone movie here. The intro CGI was done well. The CGI in the movie was BAD...the acting was worse. Thee were 2 people whom could act, the others...just were bad. Right down to the final, badly written and poorly acted, scene The plot was as transparent as glass with nothing "Surprising" in the entire movie. In my day we would have called it a "Straight to video" movie. IMO, this should have been a straight to youtube movie.
