Worth Watching.
8 December 1999 | by See all my reviews

I really liked this drama production (or TV movie, whatever). This captured the feeling of the book while adding its own dramatic interpretations as to these events. A lot of people have the preconception that the SAS or any other of the armed forces are always right, but this really opened my eyes as to how mistakes are made.

In light of other remake of the Bravo Two Zero events, "Brave Two Zero" with Sean Bean, I believe this to be the better film. The music is really great, and manages to keep our attention when nothing really interesting is happening.

A good cast, watchable action sequences, and the always good Paul McGann earn this film a decent grade.
