Lotta guns, lotta shooting, lotta evil, a little righteous good, lotta death and destruction. A really first quality blood, guts, and gore shoot-em-up movie. Only the end is hokey. And --- don't let the kids see it. They might get frightened or, even worse, cynical. Mark Wahlberg makes the movie, pure and simple.

I really enjoyed this movie with it's twists and turns. The conclusion was satisfying.

This is, oddly enough, a fairly decent shoot-em-up action movie.
The acting and cinematography are both very good, and the Director should be proud of himself.
I was expecting much worse and was surprised to have enjoyed myself.

Give me a break! Where did Walberg get all that money to purchase all those guns and what about background checks. LIE

Decent film, thought some parts were unbelievable. But hey it's Mark Wahlberg shooting!

Seriously entertains with explosive non-stop suspense action. A plausible plot. Widespread use of the F-word in a variety of expressions - anger, practical joke, resentment, triumph, etc. The role played by the 'FNG' - my interpretation for FBI new guy - is worthy of an 'Oscar'...4 stars.

Good action movie. Nothing like the book. Unfortunately Hollywierd had to put out it's liberal agenda. If you can get past that you should enjoy it.

A little quirky at times, but overall pretty entertaining. Good Twists!

I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. It's not my usual genre but it exceeded my expectations. One line in the film mentions something about personal moral convictions. Mind you, if mine were different I'd have rated this one at least a 4. I suspect mainstream America, and particularly conspiracy theorists, will love this picture.
