Goofs

News announcer quotes Vladimir Putin that "the loss Georgia was a major geopolitical tragedy of the twentieth century" (apparently meaning the South Ossetian War 1991-92). Putin has never said that. In fact, in 2005 he referred to collapse of the Soviet Union the main geopolitical tragedy of the twentieth-century. See more »

This movie has a huge potential.
19 December 2015 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Overall i would recommend this movie to everyone .It has true historian events in the foundations of its plot. One thing that i didn't like in this movie is the usage of unreal scenarios (holywood heroism , cliché action thriller stuff).I believe that if you as a writer and director using a true story as a basis to you movie you need to make the movie as real as possible.I liked that the scenes were shot very well ,the fights and (almost) all thats happening was shot very good for my taste. I also like when the story of a film is something that we can actually learn from ,needless to say that these "minor" sorties that nobody heard about or did but two days later forgot about it , are stories worth mentioning.
