If I’m honest there isn’t much to say about this film. Overall it is a huge amount of meh. Nothing more, nothing less.
Maybe I should at the very least try?
Basic blot outline, Sonny and Ricardo are undercover agents, and after one an interagency force gets discovered, they go undercover in order to find out what agency is responsible for the leak, and how the drug dealers discovered this. So off they travel, to some poor drug-ridden, crime-infested South American country. And get the gig, now they are in with the baddies. But not quite trusted.
And then Sonny starts to fall for the main badguys’ girl, who is also a very efficent “business woman”
But I just didn’t care. Scenes and scenes of talk, talk, and wait for it, yes, a little more talk. Interspersed there are some very pretty shots. But scenery and talking doesn’t make for an entertaining film… actually I was entertained by Cave of the Yellow Dog which was very much scenery and dialogue, so I guess you can. But not here. It is all just so pointless. There’s no tension or drama. And while the action scenes do look great, they don’t feel great.
My final verdict? I’ll paraphrase the woman who left the cinema just after me “In all fairness now, that was fucking woeful.”

I guess the real question is, when is Colin Farrell going to get a good agent who can find decent parts for him? I don't think he's a bad actor and I've seen him in things I've liked but its been a loooooong time.
Well this one and The New World meant working with good directors, so maybe that is the appeal. I liked alexander, so won't give out about that, but it has been a while since he was as good as his Tigerland days.
Love the James Jean header!!!
Me too Carl. It was actually a little hard to find images that would fit and still look good. You can choose which headers you'd like by clicking on the different styles up top. There are four I think to decide between.
