About the Film
BAFTA nominated ‘Kajaki: The True Story’ follows a small unit of British soldiers positioned on a ridge overlooking the Kajaki Dam in Helmand Province in 2006. Acclaimed across the board and declared as the ‘British Hurt Locker’ (Charles Gant, 'Heat'), never before has the brutality of war been so beautifully shot in this tense and powerful story of a three-man patrol unit who sets out to disable a Taliban roadblock. Faced with unimaginable terrain and miles from home, this band of brothers end up in a dried out river bed where one of their unit detonates a land mine, resulting in life changing injuries. Confronted with adversity, the rest of the unit does what they do best; they do not give in. Setting in motion a desperate and determined rescue mission, where time is against them if they are going to survive the aftermath of this deadly mine strike. From the BAFTA & Academy Award Winning producer of ‘The King’s Speech’, ‘Kajaki the True Story' ‘… may well be the best war film ever made’ (Jeremy Clarkson, 'The Sun').
Not normally my type of film but when watching it I couldn't leave my seat! I've never seen a film so tense and gripping! 100% going to watch it again.
A truly amazing story
I went to see this film in the cinema not knowing anything about the story; ordinarily this is not the sought of film I would watch. However, this true story shows how some people go from being ordinary (as ordinary as anyone who puts their life on the line for their country can be) to extraordinary within only a few hours. The bravery and determination of these soldiers is an inspiration for all of us.
A truly amazing story......a film everyone should watch.
A truly incredible story
I left the cinema in a daze wondering how the hell the human body and spirit could endure what these guys did, with such courage, camaraderie and most incredibly, humour.
This is SO not a Sunday afternoon RomCom. This film deserves 100% of your attention.
It’s years since I watched a film that made such an impact.
