    Awesome action movie with great cinematography and firefight scenes. Reminds me of Tears of the Sun, but in Afghanistan.
    Definitely recommend this movie.

    This tale of an elite military unit assigned to rescue a war correspondent kidnapped by the Taliban is as frenetic and ultimately mind-numbing as a "Call of Duty" videogame, only without the thematic depth.

    Dedicated to French servicemen and wartime journalists, Special Forces aims to inspire but ends up wallowing in melodrama.

    There's nothing terribly surprising about Special Forces, a moderately gripping action flick about a group of commandos on a mission to rescue a pretty blonde who has been abducted by the Taliban. Nothing, that is, except that it's French.
