That's the thing I don't like about most TV / movies. All the police forces / enemy forces / allied forces are portrayed as incompetant boobs who couldn't hit the broadside of a barn.
Reality is that most forces are reasonable to well trained and would put somebody down.
At least in "24" they portrayed their forces to be pretty decent in a combat situation.
Even in "Enterprise" the MACO's didn't drop like flies. The sheer number of MACO's that died are very few, even the extras got some real fight time that made them look competant.
My main issue is with Hollywood and making badguys / goodguys look like fools to make the other side look good. Everybody should be following the "24" mentality where both sides are competant and show them to use brains when approaching a situation.
I know it's a little bit difficult to ask, but make both sides intelligent for once. -_-
