You're always sick.

You were sick

when you were my age.

Evening, sir.

Evening, Victor.

I didn't realized that you're still here.

I'm just keeping James company, sir.

If that's all right...

Very kind of you.

- Are you better, son?

- Still cold, Father.

It's just a mild fever.

You'll be all right in the morning.

- You always say that.

- And you always pull through, don't you?

Now ... take your medicine.

Elizabeth !

Elizabeth !

Your father's drunk again .

You should help him home, Victor.

It's not my name he's calling, sir.

- Father!

- Stay where you are, James!


I told you never to come back here!

James ...

There are things you

don't understand.

- Don't...

- I need him them to know!

Please no!

- No...more...lies!

James ...



He...he wasn't your father ...

... son.

What are you?

- I didn't mean it! I didn't...

- Yes, you did!

He deserved it!

And you give it to him.

We're brothers, Jimmy.

You realize that?

Brother's protect each other.

You have to be hard now.

Hard that nothing can't ever touch us.

I want to go home.

We can't. We stick together no matter what.

and take care of anyone

who gets in our way.

Can you do that little brother?

They're coming...can you run?...Ok.

Keep on running.

Don't look back.


Enough! Enough!

Stand down, soldier!

Stand down!

Victor, NO!



Wake me when it's over.


My name is Major William Stryker.

You were sentenced to death

for decapitating a senior officer.

Is that correct?

Apparently we have some

issues with authority ...

- just keep aon it.

- Sir.

The tells me that your sentence

was carried out

by a firing squad at 1000 hours

- How that go?

- It tickle.

You Boys tired of running?

Tired of denying your...true nature?

- What do you care?

-Oh I care ...

I care cause I know how

special you are,

how valuable.

Look ...

You can stay here, locked up

like freaks of nature.

or you can join me.

I'm putting together a special team

with special privileges.

Now tell me...how would you like

to really serve your country?


- You wanna know why?

- No.

It's memorable.

Sure, it's little bulky, to have

to get 'em on a plane

a couple of swords

on your ex-girlfriends wedding,

They will never, ever forget it.

That's funny, Wade.

I didn't think you like girls.

Right it is...it's probably not

as intimidating as having a gun or

bone claws or the fingernails

of alady...

- Manicure?

- Victor...easy.

Speaking of sharp,

Fred got a new tattoo.

- I'm concerned.

- Oh geez, Fred you just met her last night.

- I love her.

- You love her after one night?

She's a gymnast.

Bradley, take us down.

Are you gonna puke?

If we meant to fly,

we'd grown wings.

Oh, don't worry man. See, more

dye driving than flying

How about from empaling.

Hey, be nice.

Or be approximation of nice.

Would you like a bucket?

Gentlemen, wheels down in Lagos

in five.

- Why are we here?

- All in good time. Zero ...

- Victor, .

- Having fun yet?

- Fred ...

- Tank?

- Tank.

- yeah, I like that.


Stuck in the elevator with five guys

on a high protein diet.

- Oh Wade! Dreams really do come true.

Would you just Shut It! You're up next.

Thank you, sir.

Look very nice today.

It's the green.

Brings out the seriousness in your eyes.

- Oh my God, you ever shut up pal?

- No. Not when I'm awake.

Bradley? Top floor, please.

Cover the elevator!

The Elevator!

Time to go to work.


People are dead!

If you haven't that mouth on you, Wade

you'll be the perfect soldier.

Take the diamonds, they're yours.

I don't want your diamonds.

I want this.

That? That is nothing. A souvenir.

Where did you find it? I want the source.

A small village, far inland, three days from here.

Tell him that this rock is more valuable

to me than his life.

Ask him where he found it.

He says he came from the sky.

He's telling the truth.

- You don't know their language, Logan.

- It's a meteor fragment.

I know what it is.

I ask him where he found it.

Sir, Base wants our location.

Shut him down.

Tell him everyone here will die

unless he tells me where he found the rock.

- He said that is sacred.

- Okay, fine.

Victor ...


Don't even think about it!

We didn't sign in for this.

Put him down.

What are you doing?

We finally got a good thing going here.

Don't you screw this up.

- Enough, it's enough. We've done enough.

- Who do you think you are?

This is what we do.

Well, you'd rather be...rot

in a hole somewhere

till they figure out a way

to do to us, is that it?


I'm done.

You coming?


We can't just let you walk away!



Why are you up so early?

Come here.

See you baby.

Oh that's nice! Yeah!

No. Come on.

Hey,what do you do?

You turn off the light, you win a prize.

- Two tries for a buck.

- Come on, I wanna do it!

Um, that's obvious.

That's two.

- That's a stupid trick.

- It's not a trick, man.



Show's over!

I said show's over!

The show is never over for us, Bradley.

- Victor ...

- Aren't you gonna invite me in?

Yes, come on in.

You know, I've never said anything

to anyone...about what happened.

I'm leaving a totally different life now, but uh...

No need to bring up the past.

You know ...

I always thought it would be Wade

coming knocking at my door.

Well, Wade's gone.

I'm not afraid of you, Victor.
