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!

Excellent series, there's a few weak plot problems, they're minor things, hopefully can be fixed by the next season. Ryan phillipe does a good job, should be rewarded for his efforts. Will be interested in what they do with next season.

While this is an entertaining action flick, it's nowhere nearly as good as the book ("Point of Impact"; "based on" in the credits means extremely loosely - as usual with movies made from books, of course; names of characters are there, and a couple of events, but mostly it's a different story all together). If you've read the book, be prepared for this to be a joke. If you haven't read the book yet, do that and see how much a better action adventure it is than this. And then read the rest of the Bob Lee Swagger stories ...

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!

Lots of action. Will definitely satisfy Mark's fans.

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.

Senator Charles F. Meachum: There's always a confused soul that thinks that one man can make a difference. And you have to kill him to convince him otherwise. That's the hassle with democracy.
