For every action film featuring elite warriors, such as “Zero Dark Thirty” ($132 million and a ton of painful controversy) or “Lone Survivor” (more than tripled its budget with nearly $150 million despite its horrific true story), there is a boatload of bombs — “War, Inc.,” “The Messenger,” “Stop-Loss,” “The Green Zone” ($11 million average).

 there’s that intriguing Scottish cop (Denis Lawson, replacing James Bolam), who is constantly in conflict with the one remaining cast member, Dennis Waterman.
