actually not a bad film overall. it takes the die hard mold and does some interesting things. seagal dies early in the film which is a surprise. the role of the american military in making the film is interesting to note as well. the president in the film was written out of the script in order to get the pentagon to help with the production. it’s also a film about islamic terrorism before such a thing was popular in american film. there are plenty of cheese ball moments, but if you go into it knowing that you’re going to watch something bad then it might surprise you.
