1.0 out of 5 stars Oops, they used the cutting room floor footage instead of the movie., September 5, 2015

The first 5 minutes is pretty cool, but after that it becomes a bunch of what seem to be unrelated scenes. Either this movie has no plot, or it has so many sub-plots that there is no one core story. There's some young woman that is basically a jack-of-all-trades female James Bond. She and the main character, Tom Jones (that name is not unusual) are Government secret agents. Just to make the plot(?) more confusing, there are 3 or 4 women that look almost identical at first, and for a while I wasn't sure if it was the same woman acting as a double-agent with a (very obvious) fake Irish accent. The guy from Assassin's Creed keeps popping up, too. It's not REALLY him, but he's a bad guy and he's supposed to do something, or stop something, or stop someone from stopping something, I don't know. After an hour all I understood was that someone was trying to smuggle in yellow cake uranium, and there was a serial killer on the loose. Those two may or may not be related - by the time I gave up watching there was still no connection between them.

This started out looking like a really cool movie, but it quickly turned into a failed pilot for a CSI rip-off, complete with a quirky group of science nerds, most of whom could moonlight as models in a JCPenny's catalog.

To give credit where it's due, oh never mind... it's not due anywhere after the first 5 minutes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Plot traded for a false PC narrative, February 28, 2017

This review is from: Sons of Liberty (DVD)
I watched the film twice to ensure I didn't miss or misjudge something because my first take was to walk away feeling like I had been horse whipped simply for being born. I am truly tired of these post modern movies that do not resonate with real life and at best can be described as produced by the angst of someone's sexual confusion and/or anger. Yes, I get the message; girls are stronger, smarter leaders while boys are impulsive, errant fools who get shot. That isn't how military operators conduct themselves. The manner in which the actors portray the war on terror is an insult to the men and women who actually do get down into the dirt and risk their lives to keep nuclear weapons from detonating in U.S. cities. We see an increasing number of attempts to typecast society as this film does and the reason such films wind up as a streamed freebies and not big screen hits is because they are dripping with false narratives and Americans still aren't buying them no matter for how many decades they are slung at the audience. If you want to make a movie successful, leave what you learned from your preachy liberal arts professors in the closet with your graduation gown, their false narrative will never be real life. Settle for equality, you've got it; but society isn't going to be forced into a "weak man strong woman" paradigm so diligently sought by the bullies producing movies like this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Move Along, Nothing to See Here, September 5, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sons of Liberty (Amazon Video)
Well I lasted 35 minutes and that's with the show running and my playing scrabble on my phone, checking Facebook, and my emails. After the rip-rollicking fun of "Strike Back" this was such a let down. The plot is murky and confusing, all the women pretty much look the same so it's a challenge to figure out who is doing what (or perhaps I am just old and the young folk figured that out no problem), and gosh the acting is....flat. The action soundtrack sets you up for nothing. Good thing it was on Prime because otherwise I would have resented the cost of the rental.

    WE’RE OSCAR MIKE IN TWENTY MINUTES, August 30, 2014

    The Movie Guy (United States) –

    This review is from: Sons of Liberty (DVD)
    The film opens with a pseudo-history lesson during the opening credits. It starts in 1302 with the founding of the Ordo Mundi and in 1765 the Sons of Liberty were founded with the Tea Party complete with line about refreshing from time to time. We jump to Australia…and I am not sure how that played in and then a human clone in 1974 who takes over the 1302 order, the 1980 October Surprise, and then some stolen yellow cake. Your job Mr. Hall is to combine all this together in one story and then direct it. Good Luck.

    It seems the bad guys which appears to be part of this order wants to get U-235 and create some sort of bomb to explode…somewhere a “micro-nuclear terrorist threat.”. Our hero group is actually Homeland Security. They are following the trail of items being bought while investigating the murder of girls with markings (numbers?) carved into them.

    Tom (Adam Cardon) is our good guy on a crutch, but don’t fret, his newly recruited girlfriend who is scientist, small arms expert, and boxer can help out as a new special agent.

    I loved the opening. Good early plot points, okay graphics, and decent soundtrack. However after that, the plot seemed to have drifted all over the place, possibly from having too many script writers…too many chefs. It appears they had either a professional adviser or did bother to Goggle stuff, as they had most of the key words and phrases, but Co-65 doesn’t exist on the “Chart of the Nuclides” and would have a 1-2 second half-life if it did (i.e. they are not buying it and having it shipped.) U-235 does not have a “gravitational signature” but does emit an 80 kev photon.

    This is listed as action sci-fi. It seems one guy is a clone. I am not sure what he does. That is the extent of the “sci-fi” element. There is some action, but it is more drama than action. My bore factor crept up.

    No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. 2 Stars is generous.
