This group of actors would have been hard pressed to give a performance better than a group of 10 year old students at a school play. The acting was amateurish, except for Armand Assante and Tom Sizemore. All the female actors were absolutely dreadful. The storyline was basically good, but the directing was awful. Doesn't work to have the director being the writer. The whole thing was flat. That is the easiest way I could describe it. The music did not match the would be tension of the scenes. I kept watching in the hope it would improve. Unfortunately it did not happen. It looked like a very low budget movie with a group of actors that maybe hadn't worked in a long time. The set itself looked as if it was filmed in a studio, no real rough terrain as you would find in Iraq. Also the actors and their uniforms/clothes remained spotless all the way through, which considering they were supposed to be operating in a dirty dusty environment, was laughable.
