Wow, that looks great. Loving how they used the original voice-over words!

Except they changed "soldiers of fortune".

I just now watched Ridley Scott's "Body of Lies", which was shitty.

So, it turns out this was my Movie of the Year, I reckon.

Hilarious, brilliant action, amazingly cast. Let down by a fairly simple plot and BA going pacifist, that's still not enough to stop it being a brilliantly-paced action flick. 10/10.

I enjoyed this at the time, too. I re-watched it yesterday and... it's shit?
It's a weird mix of Michael Mann gritty action and Peter Jackson bouncy cartoon action, Jim Carrey-style antics and solemn discussions about honour and violence. At least half of the team are obnoxious, the villains/love interest are boring and obnoxious and the story is dull as dishwater.
Action movies in 2011 must have been terrible for us all to have enjoyed this so much.
