Verdict on Land of Bad

Land of Bad is an action thriller following a special force team whose mission gets compromised. They are guided from the skies by a drone pilot, as they look to survive against a ruthless enemy. However, the race against time proves to be a lot more challenging than anyone imagined.

This movie feels like an updated version of ‘Behind Enemy Lines’ using a lot more of the modern conflict methods. The action is intense and ruthless once the mission goes wrong. Meanwhile, the drone team has a much more complex reflection on how casual certain members of the team are. Even if this can draw back the intensity of the movie, as one side of the story becomes comical at times.
