    This is a bit of an odd one. Tonally it's all over the place, moving between a gritty, political, emotional war movie and a lighthearted and humorous romp in the desert repeatedly with a frenetic, hyper-kinetic energy. It's disorientating and off-putting at times, and I can't help but feel it might have been a better movie if it picked a tone and stuck with it, but there's no denying that the resulting combination actually works in a weird, wonderful way. 9 years ago

    This movie is just confused. Either that or it had 3 different directors who never spoke to each other throughout filming. One moment it's trying to be a wartime comedy, the next a depressing Apocalypse Now-esque film, the next a heroic "goodies vs. badies" shoot'em out.

    Try to take the movie for what each part is and it's quite good. There's definitely a good film hidden in there.
