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 »

A Big Question Mark
14 August 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After watching this movie I came straight back on IMDb to see if I could make sense of what I had just watched. But after reading all the comments so far, I am none the wiser. It definitely did remind me of 'Blair Witch In The Desert' (with an Apocalypse Now style narration throughout) albeit without the hand camera so at least you don't feel queasy at the end, just a tad confused

Having said that, it did command my attention until the end, and I did enjoy it. After about 1/2 an hour its pretty obvious that the ending isn't going to be neatly wrapped up so it shouldn't leave you too disappointed
