Really good watch, could watch again, and can recommend. The introductory scene and general premise is ridiculously depressing, especially since it is a real world problem. While it does setup the movie fairly well, they did not get good enough cg for the lion. And that's without comparing it to Disney's uncanny valley of realistic animal animation. I was thrilled to see Megan Fox show her range in this though. As someone who was not a fan of her early career, I'm increasingly impressed with her. This is a great example of a good para-military movie. It really makes me wish they had left out the lion bit altogether. Overwhelming odds against a noble objective for money makes for a great movie concept. The actual execution has some great production value (minus the lion), and the cast does a fantastic job. The writing is compelling both from a character standpoint and immersive strategy survival standpoint. If you like firearms action, rescuing princesses from castles, or just Megan Fox, then give this a shot.
