    We don't really learn anything new about the military or its operations, of course, but with the slick scenes and snappy one-liners coming in rapid succession, who really cares?

    The half-tense dramatic payoff is a pleasant surprise, but the bluster -- oh, the bluster and machismo are palpable.
  3. It pulsates with the requisite flash and dash we've come to expect of a Bruckheimer outing, in this case rather like "JAG" on steroids. But at the end of the day it rings emotionally hollow.

    Anyone who saw Team America, the movie send-up of all things Bruckheimerian, will find E-Ring hard to take too seriously. [24 Oct 2005, p.41]

    Hopper [is] so misfitted for this role that he seems perversely perfect.

    So disappointing that such a great show was taken off the air. Perhaps it told the truth too well.
