I just watched this one on DVD. As for it being "horrid lies and false propaganda", it never once suggested it was real or true - it's a work of fiction, nothing more. Being angry that it told supposed "lies" just makes you sound like someone who wishes it were real Anyway, the film was okay. I like Cage, and I thought he did an okay job. It's the final third that sinks it though. You could tack that end on a hundred othr action/thriller movies and not miss a heartbeat - which is a shame considering this is supposed to be one of those "I can't believe Hollywood made this!" films. Others here have said it is "dark" and/or "disturbing". That was the problem with it for me, it was nowhere near dark enough or disturbing! You see nothing in the film really, and nothing that shocking is even hinted at - other than that central film. Peter Stormare was awful, imo. He looked like a ridiculous caracature, as campy and stupid as hell. He was a weak point. The tacked on marriage thing for Cage's character was lame (erm, he's a murderer now, feel safe?) And the gun with the slippery grip was a joke. But as an odd action film, it has some good things going for it - so it would get maybe a 6 out of ten on a generous day.
