Since it was based on a true story and all, kudos to having balls and saving lives, but still...something about this character bothered me to the extent that I would have a problem with the guy in real life. People who think they are 100% right in any topic usually have some very important screws loose; I tend to avoid these types of folks.
The film wasn't as dramatic as the trailer made it out to be and it seemed a bit short as well. I found it unbalanced and way too concentrated on the primary so I wouldn't recommend it.

I think someone could edit down all the funny parts into a longish trailer and you'd get the same level of enjoyment from only 5 min of investment.

What got me was the trailer and the great music that went along with it. I did watch reviews but I dunno why I just picked wrong. The game is reminescent of Planetside 2 in that you die a lot and you never get to really see the person who takes you out. The mechanics are crap and I know the flow of this game isn't something I like. You die a lot in this game and none of it makes much sense. If you go head-to-head with some other dude, you get owned really quickly even though you're unloading on them just as fast. Sure, I get how SMGs and shotguns are better at close range and all, but more often than not it seems rigged in some way. Maybe it has something to do with the leveling system?
One other thing is that the aiming is really crappy. You can have a mob right in your sights, take a shot, and it won't even register a hit. There's bullet drop on sniper rifles, but the rate of misses is plain rediculous.
Overall the main, single-player campaign is short but decent. It does a good job introducing the player to the game but it's not worth buying just for that. Graphics are good and modern, but gameplay mechanics suck. Just get ready to get totally owned unless you're playing with friends in a squad...if no communication is going on you'll get ran over. Solo multiplayer is shit.

I'll just quickly summarize that it was kinda nasty. Do you know that feeling when you tried V8 for the first time? Yeah the feeling that this stuff gives you is like that; just sorta wrong. I could not get used to the consistency and flavor of the product to eat it everyday for every meal. Was I able to get away from eating occasional meals and just sip on a mixture of this? Yes, but sparingly. Sometimes I really didn't know what I wanted to eat so I just drank this stuff and continued on my day, but other times I really wanted to eat x, y, or z so I went out like a normal person. Did I lose any weight? Kinda, yes. One week is too short of a time to really evaluate the weight loss potential of a new food source, but I think it was more "base" in terms of nutrition and what was inside of the package so that cleared out a lot of filler that is normally in food.
So in a nutshell if/when they ever create a cheap drink, like in a soda-sized container, where you can just grab one vs making a large, one-week amount from a powder, then it may be worth it. Don't feel like going out to eat for lunch? Just grab one of these, drink it, drink water or soda to flush out the aftertaste, and continue on with your day. But yeah you really need to be in the 'I don't care' mood or else your memory of what this tastes like will affect that decision to just grab a burger instead of being lazy.

I think they tried to make it dramatic at times when it didn't need to be, but overall it was good. It's funny but the movie would actually be a good one to watch on a plane because it's not too flashy, fast, or think-heavy.

I was never a fan of Doctor Strange though, so I can't say much more than that. He was always an 'eh' type of hero character in the comics.
