Is It Any Good?

This movie mimics many far better films about macho former military-trained personnel who are brought back by the CIA or FBI to carry out some important secret mission or other. These are guys who can take care of themselves in tough situations, who communicate in profanity-laced dialogue, often punctuated with a "Roger that!". In this case, the nature of the mission doesn't matter much -- a nuclear warhead is involved -- because it's the ambushes, betrayals, switched allegiances, and unreliable alliances that are the focus of this mishmash of a plot.

Written and directed by Matthew Hope, the narrative is as unclear as the many night scenes he shot, during which people who look and dress alike are all shooting at one another in the shadows. Gibson ably handles a rather one-note role. He may well have what it takes to be a compelling leading man, but All the Devil's Men does nothing to showcase his potential.
