Did You Know?

Trivia:
Sir Ranulph Fiennes, an English adventurer, polar explorer and former SAS man is the author of The Feather Men, the novel from which this film is adapted. Although he has often claimed the novel was a true story, the families of the real dead SAS men named in the novel who died on SAS exercises and the SAS themselves publicly attacked it as sick exploitation and complete fiction. The SAS even went on the record to disown both Fiennes and the book, with Lt-Col Ian Smith telling the Daily Mail 'It was utter b****, the figment of a fertile imagination. What was really upsetting was that it was making a story out of a tragedy.' Maggie Denaro, the widow of one of the dead SAS men said of Fiennes 'It's time he grew up. He's made his money out of the book. He should come clean. When the book came out saying Mike had been murdered, we knew it wasn't true. But that didn't stop our children from being upset when other people believed it.' Although Fiennes claims he sent a manuscript of the book to both the SAS and the families of the dead men, who gave their approval, they have all unequivocally denied his claim.See more »

Much better than I expected; excellent pacing, 15 January 2012
Author: snowboarderbo from Las Vegas....baby!

Decent acting from the supporting cast, an interesting story that is thankfully absent any clichés, and a lack of any "gotcha" in the story certainly help this movie stand out. But really it's the pacing that made it for me. Things happen FAST. They happen logically, and reasonably (well, reasonably given the nature of the story) but they happen quickly. The movie does not have any periods of introspection for our main characters. It suggests that they are having those moments, but doesn't linger on them or play them up at all; they are just facts, like everything else that happens in the movie (fights, deaths, kidnappings, etc.).

The story is complicated, involving at least 5 separately motivated factions, but at no time was it confusing (so there was no need for an "aha!" moment).

The fight scenes were all exceedingly well choreographed and fit the story so well that there was never a time when 2 people were facing off just so we could see them fight; I really appreciated that.

All in all, a very satisfying film: lots of action, lots of very good acting, and lots of attention to detail (it really looked like it was the early 1980s).

I was going to give this a 7/10, but as I was writing and thinking about it, I upped it to 8/10.
