The hunt for Osama Bin Laden, but on a really tight budget in this trailer for CODENAME: GERONIMO

The second that Osama Bin Laden took a bullet to the skull, several Hollywood executives received a massive rush of blood to their genitals and said to themselves “We need to turn this into a movie”.

Kathryn Bigelow and Universal Studios have done just that, as their take on the Bin Laden raid, Zero Dark Thirty, is out in December. That’s a film with some top class actors and a decent budget behind it. Codename: Geronimo however, is none of that. But hey, it is out sooner, right?

Directed by John Stockwell, Codename: Geronimo features a who’s who is available of actors that no one knows or gives a damn about, except for William Fichtner, that is, who apparently needs some quick cash.

Grabbing bits from the upcoming Bigelow film, but on a $2 million budget instead, the only thing cheaper in this film is the sheer amount of stereotypes and clichés within it.

America? Check! Soldiers training to take down the most dangerous man in existence apparently? Check! Brothers in arms who will die to save one another or their nation? Check! Said soldiers talking to concerned loved ones and hugging their kids? Check! Middle Eastern terrorists! Check and check!

You could turn this into a drinking game if you wish. Have a shot every time you get that clichéd  deja vu, or William Fichtner shows up. You’ll be catatonic by the second minute.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
