Another brief one.  I’ll be resuming full reviews as soon as time allows it.

A small unit of military men get betrayed by an unknown in the CIA, left for dead in Bolivia before encountering an agent who can get them back for revenge.  Sounds like everything you’ve seen before, right?  Well, it is, but it has enough wit and humor to keep you entertained.  The action is fast paced and frenetic at times, and the characters are well rounded enough that you can care for all of them (though when they had to float their names in the beginning, I was worried: normally floating names to point out who is who doesn’t bode well for a movie).  More enjoyable than it should have been.

Now, I just need to go back and find the comics for this series.  The movie definitely had the look for it, even though it’s hard to pull off Jock’s illustration on the big screen.  Kudos to the production team for doing that.
