Just Plain Boring

Honestly this movie just felt like it was ticking off a checklist. Gun shoot out. check. Car chase. check. Underwater scene. check. It just kept going. I went into the film with a good expectation especially from such a well known cast, but it fell flat. No chemistry among the cast, Dominic Cooper just didn't have the presence or physicality you would expect of a SBS Agent. The villain was underwhelming and even at the end of the film I'm still not sure what the motive was. Even with all the great locations and scenery, it couldn't carry the bland and unimaginative story line. Do not watch.

Cooper is no Action Hero..

A British Special Boat Service commando tracks down an international terrorist cell. Simon West once upon a time directed action films such as The Expendables 2, The Mechanic, Tomb Raider and Con Air now he makes films such as Gun Shy and Stratton and i gotta say this film was boring from start to finish. First of all the acting from Dominic Cooper was bland as hell i mean the guy is good as Howard Stark but he is no "Schwarzenegger" type of action hero and that shows a lot threw out the entire film. Talent goes wasted completely since actors such as Derek Jacobi and Connie Nielsen (Wonder Woman) find themselves and their talent going threw the damn window. The action sequences are boring and useless (especially the Opening one) and what the hell is Draco Malfoy doing in here? Overall Stratton is a boring mess of an action film where money talks and talent gets wasted a lot. (0/10)

Why the Hate?

After reading many reviews about this movie, I was a little hesitant, but ended up being pleasantly surprised. Somewhat understated instead of the crass flash-bang of most American films in the genre, Stratton put up a believable story-line with a worthwhile cast. The moaning and complaining about Dominic Cooper is puzzling, with constant gripes about his lack of physical presence. Anyone with an inkling of the nature of Special Forces soldiers, especially non- American ones, would know that they aren't all 6ft plus full of rippling muscle but are frequently 'normal' looking blokes who are capable of extraordinary things, much like Cooper's portrayal. Mark Donaldson, the Australian SASR VC recipient is a classic example. As for his firearms skills, another sage suggested that "Half the time he uses a weapon he seems to be trying to emulate John Rambo, hip-firing at any opportunity.". I'm not sure what movie that individual was watching, but Cooper, Hoechlin and Stowell all shouldered their weapons sighting through the optics attached as is the usual case with modern operations. One 'expert' reviewer mentioned the use of 7.62mm NATO rounds being incorrect. I'm guessing a little too much time spent playing CoD here. Sorry, wrong again. Gemma Chan's character quite specifically mentions a sniper rifle, with this chambering being quite popular with the application. Equally so, Connie Nielsen's 'atrocious' accent. I couldn't see the problem myself. She spoke with a grace and dignity one would expect from a woman in her role. The action scenes were 'action', the drama as so and the humour or lighter moments equally appropriate. One might think the amount of negative reviews were from opponents of either Dominic Cooper or Simon West or those who were disappointed with Henry Cavill's lack of appearance. Either way, horses for courses and this course suited me down to the ground. Recommended.
