In Army Of One, Gary Faulkner (Cage) is an ex-con, unemployed handyman, and modern day Don Quixote who receives a vision from God (Brand) telling him to capture Osama Bin Laden. Armed with only a single sword purchased from a home-shopping network, Gary travels to Pakistan to complete his mission. While on his quest, Gary encounters old friends back home in Colorado, the new friends he makes in Pakistan, the enemies he makes at the CIA—and even God and Osama themselves. Based on the article by Chris Heath in Gentlemen's Quarterly magazine. (Gary Reber)

Special features include a making-of featurette (HD 07:07, upfront previews, and an UltraViolet digital copy.

The 2.38:1 1080p AVC picture was photographed digitally and exhibits a generally natural appearance, but overall the visuals are mediocre. Colors are naturally hued and well balanced without stylized saturation. Resolution is generally soft, with little in the way of fine detail revealed. Blacks are decent, as well as shadow delineation. Overall, the picture is rather bland and without distinction. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is dialogue focused with additional narration. Dialogue is often quite forward sounding. Other than the music score and the occasional atmospheric sound effect, surround activity is limited. Still, the music is generally well recorded with a wide soundstage and at times nice depth. The soundtrack is rather chaotic at times and generally mediocre, without distinction. (Gary Reber)
