POSTERS

Preview: Special Forces (2012)

Synopsis:

As a special forces team extracts their target but finds their escape mode destroyed, they must make their way across the harsh climes and dangerous deserts of enemy-occupied territory in order to escape.

  • Poster: C+

Review:

I've praised the sunglass reflection concept before, but here it seems cheap as the entire design looks like a rote exercise in poster design without distinctiveness or originality.

  • Trailer: C

Review:

The trailer design is just as bland and uninteresting as the poster design. You can predict each beat as it occurs and should that be drawn out to feature length (a likely prospect), there's nothing to redeem it.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
