Action shambles - Elite Force: Operation Mekong review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
22/08/2017

Although filmed on an epic scale, this story of the battle against drugs on the Mekong River is a mess of a movie. Filmed with a scattergun approach to both plotting and cinemaphotography, it’s difficult to follow and, although based on true events, difficult to care about. Action set pieces are ruined by shakycam and rapid editing. A shoot-out in a cave could have been interesting but the footage only lasts a few seconds, which is typical of the film not being able to distinguish between what works and what doesn’t. It’s as if director Dante Lam has been watching too many Paul Greengrass films. It’s real disappointment from him after films such as The Beast Stalker.
