Storyline

Based on actual accounts, this film portrays the days and hours before and during the invasion of the Falkland Islands by Argentina, which eventually lead to the Falklands War. As the Argentine forces land on the main island and make their way towards Government House, the British Royal Marines batten down the hatches and prepare to defend Governer Rex Hunt, his family and their fellow islanders from the invaders.

Trivia

The non-speaking roles of some of the Argentinian marines were played by the crew of a British round-the-world yacht which just happened to be in Port Stanley harbour at the time of filming. This was because the producers could not find an adequate number of resident Falkland Islanders willing to play Argentinian soldiers. See more »

True to life, realistic and a great film alround
4 February 2004 | by (Liverpool, England) – See all my reviews

Even if you never never heard of the Falklands War of 1982, you really need to watch this film. It was all filmed in and around Government House, Port Stanley in the Falkland Islands..

The film is fantastic, very authentic even down to the weapons used at the time.. Some great one liners, great dialogue and good action.

I highly recommend this movie! 5/5
