It’s hard to tell if the new movie Soldiers of Fortune is going for a comedy angle or a straight-to-DVD action movie vibe.
Christian Slater plays Captain Craig McKenzie, a former U.S. special forces soldier, who is hired to guide a group of millionaires (Ving Rhames, Dominic Monaghan, Sean Bean, and James Cromwell) who want to experience the first hand thrills of war. However, what is supposed to be a somewhat safe adventure goes wrong and the men get more combat time than they bargained with.
If you’re interested in this movie a fun bet to make before seeing it is whether or not Sean Bean’s character dies. Just try and think of a movie where Sean Bean doesn’t bite it – no, Silent Hill doesn’t count, and we’re pretty sure he dies at the end anyway.
Soldiers of Fortune hits theaters on August 3.
