This has got to be one of the worst book adaptations, ever.

Especially since the guy who lived it supposedly consulted on it.

Few things other than the big firefight between the SEAL team and the bad guys were palatable, and instances of the firefight were totally Disney-fied.

Days were condensed, background/backstories were omitted or ignored, and just about anything and everything that made this book compelling was shit on.

An absolute sell-out (and the acting was atrocious, too).

Fuck. This. Movie.

:half: :nohole: :nohole: :nohole: :nohole:

Hah! Shit, sorry, I didn't think to look if there was already a thread until after I made one:

viewtopic.php?f=10&t=3210

I am glad we both share our hatred for this.

Seeing Wahlberg and company repeatedly throw themselves off a cliff unfortunately reminded me of this...

Unfortunately, the movie crew didn't toss themselves off a cliff repeatedly.

This movie is an insult to anyone that served. Fucking horrible.
