Not bad at all
The poster makes it look like one of Tom Sizemore's run of the mill direct to DVD b-action flicks but that's not really what this movie is.
It's a (pretty wild) comedy-drama with a bit of a satire undertone, about 3 very different people who get locked in together accidentally in a time-locked military base in the middle of a war-conflict in the Middle East.
1 is a Lebanese-Australian Muslim (Bernard Curry), 1 is a Israeli Jew (Oz Zehavi) and the third and last is a Christian American redneck (Tom Sizemore) but somehow they have to find a way to stick together without killing each other.
So most of the movie takes place in one building... But it does have a couple flashbacks, visions and the like some that feel a bit out of place but overall it works.
Now, even though a lot of the dialogue surrounds around politics, one does not have to be too read up on politics to understand what's going on (I for one am not interested in politics in the slightest).
The acting is fine, although some scenes appear to have moments of improvisation in which the opposing actors occasionally seem to get thrown off guard by it but overall it's fine.
And it's cool to see Tom Sizemore committing himself to the role, he's really entertaining and it feels like it wasn't just a movie that he did for the money but one that he actually wanted to do because he liked the message of the movie and stuff.
There are some flaws, the ending felt like they didn't really know what to do with it and had 3 alternative endings planned but didn't know which one to go with so they piled them up after one another BUT overall yeah it was an entertaining 83 minutes.
