Pooch: "Okay. You know that if we do this, we're waging a war against the Central Intelligence Agency."
Cougar: "They started it."
release year: 2010
viewing setting: home Bluray 11/24/17 and home DVD, 5/10/11 and theater, 4/24/10
synopsis: A team of soldiers is betrayed and apparently killed, so they decide to get revenge on the person who set them up.
impressions: I don't see many movies in the theaters anymore (due to the idiot factor as well as the sheer cost) but this film is an example of why I still occasionally venture out to see movies. It's the perfect action movie: solid plot with twists, plenty of fighting, some good humor, and good characters. I don't want to give away too much, but this is worth watching in the same way that Taken and Shooter were.
something this movie has that no other movie has: .
acting: Jeffrey Dean Morgan is the grizzled veteran leader of the team. Chris Evans is the computer-savvy member who combines tough-guy and comedian. Zoe Saldana is one bad-ass warrior chick. Jason Patric is the bad guy.
final word: Imagine "The A-Team" with an "R" rating and actual fatalities - this is that.
