Thanks Jstokes... the fact that you liked this, and hate Malick - means everything is right in the universe.
The movie was originally a recruitment commercial that they kept expanding. They don't do things like fly the same team across the planet to keep working on linked missions. It's for the action scenes, which are pretty much spot on.
Not everything has to be an Oscar Winning movie.
