Where to start?
I must remember not to see movies when I've already read the book.
The Good: The shooting is fairly well done, the fighting scenes aren't so jerky that you get sea-sick trying to watch the film, and the female lead has pulchritude to spare.
The Bad: The screen-play appears to have been developed by taking a copy of the original book (Point of Impact) and handing it to DailyKos readers for them to edit and adapt.
Sweet Jeebus. As Chris said, "Nothing like getting your politics delivered by way of a trip hammer."
Every sodding moonbat talking point was stuffed down the viewers throat. Sometimes twice. War for oil? Got it. Administration lied? Yep. 9/11 conspiracy? Twice. Capitalistic military/industrial complex as The Source Of All Evil? Oh, yeah. Executive Branch with Imperial Intentions? Uh-huh. Abu Ghraib? Yeppers. The Eee-eeevils of Gitmo? Of course. WMDs? Yes.
If I want to get beaten (metaphorically speaking) about the head-and-shoulders by a copy of the Leftist Moonbat Playbook, I'll pop over to DailyKos or HuffPo and jolly well save myself the $7.00 matinee price.
The Ugly: Marky Mark does not have what it takes to convincingly pull off a role as either a Southern cracker or a USMC Gunnery Sergeant -- much less both at the same time.
And he probably could have. Lord alone knows that in a world where Leo DeWhoozits could make me believe for a second that he was a Rhodesian mercenary there's a good chance that a Bostonian underwear model slash rapper could convince me that he's a Southron Marine gunny -- but every time he got close, some part of Bahs-tan would sneak into his accent and spoil the whole thing.
In summation: Bad. Bad, bad. Rent the DVD if you must see it. Better yet, sucker someone else into renting the DVD and bring the popcorn.
