I saw that Dermot Mulroney and Adan Canto were in this movie so I decided to give it a chance. I was also pleased to see that Jason Isaacs was also in this. All three are good actors. The only loose end that was a red flag was the presence of Mel Gibson. I used to like Mel Gibson, but, unfortunately, he, like Bruce Willis have been starring in a lot of low budget dreck lately. Very low budget and poorly written and directed cheesy movies that are really bad. To a lesser extent, Liam Neeson has also been starring in a lot of lousy movies lately. But, at least Neesom's movies seem to have a bigger budget and better script writers.
This movie has to do with Mel Gibson as a big wig at the CIA recruiting new agents that all have one thing in common. They're misfits who have failed at their endeavors and he hires them for a secret mission. Right away I figured something smelled fishy. Turns out he's a corrupt CIA boss and is using them for a dirty mission that only he knows about, which seemed really hokey for a plot that was meant to be taken seriously.
I won't give spoilers to ruin the secret plot that is taking place, but, I will expose the nonsensical hokiness about this movie. Part takes place in a CIA Black Site and the two senior agents that appear to be in charge are totally caught off guard by the events taking place and don't even take action in response to ensuing events to counter them. Isaac's senior and experienced character sees some obviously wrong activity taking place, yet he's too naive to take any action.
There's a scene where Gibson's character contacts a military drone unit on his desk telephone and asks to take control access to an armed US military drone and the military operator turns over full drone control along with missiles without question or verification that he 1) Is who he claims to be 2) Has a Clearance with authorization and need for access to the drone. Plus this all seems really stupid to believe that a CIA bureaucrat can take personal control of an armed drone and use it for any purpose that he wants. And, after he blows up some people, he simply makes a phone call and doesn't bother to contact the drone control unit and give back control of the drone to them. He just leaves it to continue flying blindly after he's done with it.
There's another scene where 2 of 3 agents on an agency plane seem unconcerned that their flight has been diverted for no apparent reason and they don't know where they are going or for what purpose.
Then there's the CIA agent that wastes ammunition by firing at empty space when she cannot see the person that she is trying to kill. And, the 3 agents all pointing guns at a person who simply fires some shots and runs away, and not one of the 3 agents can get a shot at her.
And for the low budget "lack of" special effects, there are the machineguns and pistols that produce obviously bad/fake looking, CGI muzzle flashes. And fiery explosions that are obviously fake CGI. This movie is low budget and only worth 2 stars. It's too bad, though, because there are some good actors.
As for Mel Gibson, if you want to see a few examples of his recent, low budget, bad movies, check out "Force of Nature" and "Dangerous." As for Bruce Willis, check out "Breach" and "Marauders."
