"Another pompous film.
Starts out sober and didactic with what purports to be a history lesson and has a promising first half-hour. Then it runs out of story and gets progressively more uninteresting till its pumped-up artificiality puts it on a level with the b-movie schlock it mocks.
Heroic rogue CIA agent single-handedly saves whimpering bureaucrat Yanks from murderous Muslim army. The blaring finish of checkpoints, chases and shouting is grindingly dull. Leave before the hugs and high fives.
