About the Movie
Equal parts infuriating and illuminating, THE KILL TEAM looks at the devastating moral tensions that tear at soldiers’ psyches through the lens of one highly personal and emotional story. Private Adam Winfield was a 21-year-old soldier in Afghanistan when he attempted with the help of his father to alert the military to heinous war crimes his platoon was committing. But Winfield’s pleas went unheeded. Left on his own and with threats to his life, Private Winfield was himself drawn into the moral abyss, forced to make a split-second decision that would change his life forever.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A military platoon bent on murdering Afghan civilians for pleasure is the target of this chillingly frank documentary.
Fresh: This chilling war-is-hell expose [is] must-see viewing.
Fresh: It all adds up to a harrowing picture of the casualties of war - and the unchecked madness that may drive those entrusted to defend us.
Fresh: A blood-boiling documentary whose constrained viewpoint on its subject -- U.S. soldiers' sport-killing of Afghan civilians in 2010, and the prosecutions that followed -- doesn't prevent it from moving viewers to the point of despair.
An eye opener
As someone who worked in Afghanistan I can tell you that I went in as bright eye, do gooder American and came out with the most cynical view of our military and the very nature of the American psyche . The first time I heard from an Afghan that Americans were much worst than the Russians, I put up a strong defense of all that is American but took about a year to realize that the Russians had been less brutal than us!
The Kill Team is a must see, essential, eye-opening documentary. It gave me new heart wrenching insight into war and how it can affect the mindset of those fighting it. Definitely not your average war documentary.
