    Washington Post Michael O

    There's nothing terribly surprising about Special Forces, a moderately gripping action flick about a group of commandos on a mission to rescue a pretty blonde who has been abducted...

    New York Daily News Elizabeth Weitzman

    It's an odd showcase for Diane Kruger. She is never very believable as Elsa, a war correspondent who has been kidnapped by the Taliban.

    The film walks a questionable line between Important Issue seriousness and antsy video-game machismo.
