Diggin' up a demon

"Nope,this isn't the male-bonding Coast Guard film starring Kevin Costner&Ashton Kutcher.It's Mario Van Peebles as a Gulf War veteran who must fight an evil unleashed during that conflict (yes,a demon named Tlal who was imprisoned for 3000 yrs,but was inadvertently freed)There's the "Chaos" drug,dirty cops,and a little boy prophet named David.
The plot has more holes than Swiss cheese.There are slow-motion battle scenes,and Van Peebles' female counterpart looks&dresses like Trinity,Neo's girlfriend in the Matrix trilogy.Poor Mario spends most of the movie baffled-until he gets possessed by Tlal.The boy prophet David from Iraq (who's supposed to bring unity between Muslims and Christians) says the magic words,Mario falls from a great height to his death,destroying the demon,and his wife awakens from near-death.Huh?Did I miss something?Oh yeah,the plot."
