Corporal Evan Albright (Charlie Weber) joined the elite Marine Corps Security Guards to save the world and see some action-not necessarily in that order. But his first assignment, protecting a U. S. Embassy in a seemingly safe Middle Eastern capitol, relegates his unit to wrangling "gate groupies" protesting outside the compound and honing their marksmanship by playing video games. So Albright and his team are caught off guard when well-armed and well-trained militants launch a surprise attack aimed at killing an informant in the embassy. Heavily out-gunned, they will have to muster all the courage and firepower they can as their once routine assignment spirals into all-out war.Written by
I often wondered why some actually not bad or even serious movies would insert a totally unnecessary cast, a comic-relief like jerk in the screenplays to completely ridicule and ruin them. The worst outcome is putting such clown figures in an action movie. We had seen Bruce Lee's martial art Kung-Fu movies stupidly arranged such totally unnecessary and inappropriate role and degenerated those supposedly suspenseful action movies into not quite serious enough ones. This "Jarhed 3" was another victim by such stupid arrangement in its screenplay, allowing a totally unnecessary character, Blake, played by the annoying Filipino American, Dante Basco, to mess up with and almost ruined it soon as this jerk-like guy holding a camcorder, appeared on the screen.
I am not so sure about the connections between the screenplay writer(s), the director, or even the executive producer(s) with Dante Basco, but one thing I could definitely assure is this sore-thumb like character completely torpedoed this, by general standard, not too bad, albeit quite serious action TV movie. Of course, there are many flaws and loopholes inherited from the screenplay's scenario and plot, but except this jerk-like stand-alone Blake character, all the other players did their jobs quite seriously. The clown character in a serious U.S. Embassy is not just possible but unthinkable, that stupid arrangement simply and totally ruined the believability of this movie, even there were many settings, furniture, bullet-proof windows and glasses were so vividly and realistically destroyed.
The Chinese got an old saying to describe such inappropriate careless arrangement that doomed the outcome: "A whole well-prepared pot of porridge is ruin by just one piece of small rat dropping", Blake/Dante Basco, is indeed that piece of rat dropping.
