It's hard to believe that this astonishingly inept film ever got made, and yet here it is, reducing complex political and social problems to pablum, turning harrowing events into TV-movie-like clichés. Guy (an appallingly stiff Quaid) is a happily married husband and father, until a terrorist bomb kills his family and he goes postal in a mosque.
With no other options, he and best buddy Dominic (Skarsgard) join the Foreign Legion (yes, really), where they kill innocent civilians with unfeeling dispatch. Eventually, they wind up in the Bosnian war, and Guy begins his drawn-out return to the human community, belatedly comprehending that senseless violence is a bad thing once he hooks up with the sultry Vera (newcomer Ninkovic) and her newborn. Were this ham-fisted movie not concerned with important issues, it would be laughable. As it is, it deserves the deepest sort of scorn.
