A group of Polish troops led by Major Keller leave their base, against their superiors' commands, in order to help their colleagues from another unit. I liked the film - the action is swift and the characters' portraits are realistic. The events taking place are quite truthful: if someone gets shot he screams and bleeds, if his wound is fatal, he does not talk for another hour, but he dies almost instantly, as it usually happens in real life... Although it is not a masterpiece, it CAN still provide some entertainment : ) Apart from being an action movie, it also reveals the intricate peace-keepers'-specific dilemmas. All in all it is worth seeing.
