Goofs

During the failed helicopter extraction at 0:33 the team uses a couple of great techniques to make them more visible to the inbound helicopter crew. They attach "chem-lites" to their gear and with one attached to a length of chord, twirl the chem-lite into what is referred to as a "buzz-saw". The only problem - they use green chem-lites which are virtually invisible to night vision goggles the aircrews would be using. True buzz-saws and other markings are done with either red or infrared (IR) chem-lites which are very pronounced under NVGs and harder (red) or impossible(IR) to see with the naked eye. See more »

Gripping throughout.... good 90 minutes.
21 August 2008 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

What else do you expect from "Blair Witch Project"'s director. A true gripping, suspenseful, thriller drama that leaves a few bits hanging lightly to viewer's imagination.

This movie has a perfect beginning to become a suspense masterpiece. The setup, the music, the acting, everything comes together throughout the movie... till the end. It seems as if the director and his team were going for greatness and then decided to be normal in the end... maybe it was shortage of funds or ideas.. who knows.

No matter what the others say about the movie, it is one that shouldn't b missed. A true worthy entertainment.
