Not long into "The Wall," two U.S. soldiers find themselves pinned down by sniper fire in a remote part of Iraq.Written by first-time screenwriter Dwain Worrell, "The Wall" follows a two-man sniping team (Aaron Taylor-Johnson and WWE star John Cena) in Iraq in 2007 who are ambushed by an unseen Iraqi sniper. Only a low wall separates the adversaries. Shot over 14 days in Southern California, the film really becomes a cat-and-mouse game between the hidden Iraqi and Taylor-Johnson (Cena spends most of the film unconscious, face-down in the sand. Sgt. Allen Isaac, our hero, is in bad shape. "The Wall" borrows from other sniper films, including "Shooter" with Mark Wahlberg and "Enemy at the Gates" with Ed Harris and Jude Law.It's too boring to be an action movie and it's too silly to teach anything about cultural differences.
