Battle-hardened O’Hara leads a lively mercenary team of soldiers on a daring mission: rescue hostages from their captors in remote Africa. But as the mission goes awry and the team is stranded, O’Hara’s squad must face a bloody, brutal encounter with a gang of rebels.
This was awful and really dissapointing.
Megan Fox being hot did not even help this movie.
Not sure why anyone would make a movie about the most useless mercenaries on a hunt for people in africa... There are som people eaten by lions and thats is fun, but it does not make up for boring story, poor performance, shaky camera etc.
Stay away from this. If you manage to watch the whole thing you should get a diploma

Megan Fox leads a squad of mercenaries tasked with rescuing the daughter of the local governor from the rebels. When the mission goes sideways, they find themselves stranded, and caught between the rebels and lions.
Actually, lions, unless something is really wrong with them, avoid humans. The film makers don't let that interfere with this by-the-numbers effort, in which Miss Fox is swapped out for a more standard male action hero.
Not that it makes any difference. At first I thought this was going to be a take on the Anabasis, aka Plot #3, with perhaps some philosophizing on western efforts in Africa, but no such luck. I was surprised to discover this was actually shot in South Africa; the low lighting levels -- to indicate fear, of course -- make it look like it was shot on a sound stage.

This place feels wrong
Sam (Megan Fox ) leads a group of mercenaries in Africa who are paid to rescue the governor's daughter. The rescue goes awry and they have to do a Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid escape. They end up at the lion farm we saw in the opening scene. CG mamma lion is on the prowl.
The film is intended to bring attention to the issue of lion farms in Africa where people pay to hunt a lion that will be easy to shoot. Megan always knew where the camera was. Lots of shooting.
