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!

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.

Good action but plot could use some work.

This movie has some good action packed scenes, decent dialogue, and Mark Wahlberg does a fantastic job. This isn't a movie for everyone, but I think it is worth watching. I would recommend this to action fans, as well as fans of conspiracy movies.
