Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Paul Katis' debut feature is a tense, rigorously realized portrait of British soldiers trapped in an Afghan minefield.
Fresh: It's a relief that one can report that, strictly in aesthetic terms, it is indeed a well-made piece of work, executed with better-than-average levels of craftsmanship.
Fresh: Few war films are entertaining in a traditional sense. This one is so relentless that recoiling from it is nearly impossible.
Fresh: An intimate, unforgettable examination of war.
From an Afghan War Veteran
Like many others, I had difficulty understanding the actors. Ultimately, the situation they were in, and their actions brought tears to my eyes. They did a great job conveying the helplessness of the situation, and their willingness to sacrifice for their brothers. Honestly, it touched me much more than other war movies (Black Hawk Down, We Were Soldiers) and documentaries (Restrepo, Korengal). Give it a rent.
It’s very difficult to watch, much more intense than The Hurt Locker, Full Metal Jacket, Platoon, Thin Red Line etc.
And it must be watched. Out of respect, at the least.
There is no genre for this, it is extraordinary.
this is a tough review to write. i had to turn on closed captioning to understand these guys. the accents, the lingo and military slang were all just impossible to understand. i don’t mind CC because i watch a lot of foreign films, but this would be a drawback for some people. i simply could not have gotten everything i needed to know any other way. that’s the reason for 4 stars instead of 5.
if this were a scripted movie, i would have said at several points ‘enough already. this is just too much. how much more horror can these men go through?’ but it’s TRUE. it happened. and these men’s courage and brotherhood, in the most horrible situation you could ever imagine, is just awe inspiring.
