Did You Know?

Trivia

In the Scotland training scene, Mac, the instructor says "..and for those of you who don't know me, you're in for a big f***in' surprise." and "...now let's try for our first heart attack, shall we?" These lines are almost identical to those spoken by RSM Sandy Young (Jack Watson) in The Wild Geese (1978). See more »

Goofs

When identity discs (dog tags) are taken off the bodies of deceased soldiers, both discs are taken. In fact, only the red disc was supposed to be taken, with the green disc staying on the body to identify it. See more »

Unfortunate undeveloped story and cast
27 June 2011 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

I set out watching this movie with minimal expectations given that many war stories typically revolve similar themes. The beginning of the movie all the way through to the mid sections surprised me with strong character plays and development from Sean Bean and the revolving cast. The story line while not new, managed to capture my attention with good acting and keeping the story on the go.

Unfortunately as it nears towards the end, the story seems to have been "chopped off" with a somewhat quick ending to a nicely built up story. I believe this could have been better done with a proper ending to the story.

Good acting though.
