"Better than you’d expect."
3 stars

Typical "solder with a soft side" movie with some pretty good action.

Soldier Dennis Quaid joins the Foreign Legion to kill Muslims in ex-Yugoslavia after his wife (Natassia Kinski) is killed in a Paris bombing. He regains his humanity when he escorts a Serb mother and her bastard Serb/Muslim child around the countryside where they are attacked by all sides. Quaid is actually surprisingly good in a film that doesn’t pull its punches despite some cliched scenes such as one where he must hold his hand across the baby’s moth to avoid capture.

Nothing too original, but done well enough. Should please actions fans a little more than others. (Gawain
