This was the first ‘grown film’ I have watched in a while and I remembered why. It was obviously a man’s film, nothing that I didn’t already know but what I did expect was some kind of build up in the tension, maybe even feel a little something towards the characters, but no that was never going to happen.
We all know the CIA are as corrupt as the criminals they are protecting us from, well at the very least in the films, can’t say I have any personal contact with the real thing. The way the CIA went around shooting people at random with no thoughts to the consequences was laughable, though was that the point, totally over the top government agents that are above the law. It was done very tongue in cheek, well I hope it was.
