Summary: Pump those stereotypes, babee.
Surprisingly, this movie is a futile attempt by Hollywood to pander to the minorities. The white people are the evil ones, guilty and at fault for everything; the minorities save the day. And the towel-heads are once again shown as men of peace who would never do anything warlike unless you actually fall for that line of bull and then they become terrorists. Sad, really. Otherwise, this could have been a decent film. The action and pacing was done right, but the storyline was stupid. As for the US Army invading Brooklyn... give me a fucking break. No army in the world could do that. And everyone would just flee in ten thousand directions anyway. Over two million people live in Brooklyn, how's a few thousand troops gonna do jack with that?

Summary: Willis and Denzel wank off for two hours
Another movie that desperately needed a script, this supposed action thriller lacks both action and thrills. Even as a smartypants political piece, it's simple-minded and stupid. If you have a choice between watching this and cleaning the bathroom, go for the bathroom.
