About the Movie
When a new sergeant, James, takes over a highly trained bomb disposal team amidst violent conflict, he surprises his two subordinates, Sanborn and Eldridge by recklessly plunging them into a deadly game of urban combat. As the men struggle to control their wild new leader, the city explodes into chaos, and James’ true character reveals itself in a way that will change each man forever in a movie that the NY Daily News says “deserves to stand as one of the defining films of the decade.”

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: There is much that is fiercely modest about its ambitions. And, for a war film, it is often disconcertingly quiet.
Fresh: An important, intense, nail-biting experience -- really quite unforgettable.
Fresh: It is visceral filmmaking at its best.
Fresh: It's a film about why some soldiers love war, a theme that's rare in war films made by men.
To see the 2004 bombing of Iraq in a suspenceful motion picture with great actors and special effects, its hard not to feel as if your in the shoes of the new appointed sergeant officer James. To see this movie is not to show that you are not an action thrillist, but a sympathetic person to the soldiers out in the middle-east. This movie is one of its own and deserves all the awarads it recieves.
