I can't believe I missed this movie until now.
I think the action, Wilson running, his pursuers, reminds of another movie where Hackman was on the run.
Well, turnaround is fair play. Wilson is sarcastic at the beginning of the movie. You cannot tell if it is going to be a comedy at the first.
His character develops, both cinematically as well as personally. This shows the raw change that a person can go through when facing an ordeal.
This is a movie that inspires courage. I consider it to be very watchable. The war scenes are not shoot-em-ups, they tend to add reality to the story.
