|01.31.11||Netflix|| The politics in this lessened its impact in my opinion. I guess I was just expecting a random action movie along the lines of The International. Instead, I get Matt Damon single-handedly proving that America forced its way into war in a convenient two hours. There's a good guy CIA agent, a bad guy CIA agent, a passionate Afghan citizen, an evil general, a vapid reporter, and no-nonsense Matt Damon caught in the middle. The script is really pretty weak. I (of course) attribute this to Brian Helgeland.|
"Let's get the story right this time. xxoo"
Oh well, guess I'll have to rent The American to hopefully get my decent Action fix
