Stratton: International military operation shown in a lighter vein
Stratton is an action thriller that serves nobody’s interest. Based on a series of novels by Duncan Falconer, the movie fails to attract attention. It is a simple tooth for tooth formula and the old world chase of insurgents in deserts and greens and also in the high streets of Greater London. It is an old wine served in a new bottle.
It’s all about revenge
M16 operative Jack Stratton is a proud member of the Special Boat Service in UK. He goes on an assignment in Iraq where he loses his longtime friend and partner. The Iraqi operation results in disaster for the army as it loses several of its commissioned officers. Friend of Stratton was one of the officers killed during the operation. Back home, Stratton misses his friend and also vows to do justice with his friend. It is an age old formula for creating film stories.
The story moves on with emotions
