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
