Storyline

This is the true story of the most highly decorated British patrol since the Boer war: an eight man SAS team inserted behind Iraqi lines during the Gulf War in January 1991. Their mission was to take out the scud missiles which Saddam Hussein was using to terrorize his enemies, as well as to sever strategic communication lines between Baghdad and North West Iraq. This top secret mission was called "Bravo Two Zero" and it was commanded by Sergeant Andy McNab. Of the eight who went out, only five returned. Dropped into "scud alley" carrying 210-pound packs, McNab and his men soon found themselves surrounded by Saddam's army. Their radios didn't work; the weather was brutally cold. And they had been spotted. For the SAS, the Bravo Two Zero patrol has always been seen with mixed feelings. On one hand, its most famous ever action is a tale of remarkable endurance and heroism; on the other hand, only one of the eight-man patrol managed to escape death or capture (as told in The One That Got...

Trivia

The rifle Andy McNab uses in the film is an M16A2 with an M203 40mm grenade launcher. See more »

Goofs

At approximately 36 mins, Andy checks a compass attached to his rifle. This would not happen as proximity to a mass of metal (such as a rifle or a steel helmet) could affect the reading due to magnetic interference. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
BBC Announcer: For Allied Forces in the Golf the preparation is over. The real battle, only days away. This relentless activity is a reminder that if final-hour diplomacy stumbles, then action against Iraq will be both certain and uncompromising. Saddam Hussein says it will be the mother of all battles. President Bush demanded that conflict must be swift and decisive.
President George H. W. Bush: This will not be another Vietnam. This will not be a protracted, drawn-out war.

A grim yet solemn glimpse into the gulf war.
20 September 1999 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I was impressed by the realism and character representation of this film. In ways, it views like a documentary, and considering the fact that it is a true story, played out with true to life quality acting instead of conventional over dramatisation, thinking of it as a documentation is not altogether inaccurate.

It's unfortunate that the Australian censorship board did not allow this movie to reach Australia by any commercial means. I had to have it sent by someone who taped it off the BBC. The justification was that it would offend the middle eastern residents of Australia, however this is an unjust violation of free speech
