Trivia

In certain key scenes real ammunition was used during filming to get the realistic effect. See more »

Goofs

The Foley artist chose the wrong sound effect for the camera used by the recon team in Somalia. The camera used is a Canon 20D digital SLR, while the sound produced when the operator releases the shutter is that of a 35mm film SLR with a motorized film drive. Since digital SLRs use an imaging sensor instead of film, they do not need a film advance drive and would not make that sound. Instead, you would hear the click of the shutter followed by a much more rapid whir of the shutter curtains being reset. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
LT Rorke: Before my father died, he said the worst thing about growing old was that other men stopped seeing you as dangerous. I've always remembered that, how being dangerous was sacred, a badge of honor. You live your life by a code, an ethos. Every man does. It's your shoreline. It's what guides you home. And trust me, you're always trying to get home.

Real military existence with a very small dose of Hollywood dramatisation
25 July 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have seen some of the low reviews for this film and they are obviously from people that have had too many Bourne, Rambo or Arnold movies, this film does have some glamorisation but in the whole, you see and feel what it is really like. You don't get to see a hero who never gets stuck in the thick of it, who isn't impenetrable.

There is a real world out there and this film mixes a bit of Hollywood glamour in very, and i mean very, small doses, and reality in larger doses without making it dark and depressing, this film focuses on REAL people.

I am an ex serviceman and this film for me was close enough without being melodramatic. To me there was a sense of REALITY about it, I always feel that their is no point weeping for the people we have lost, but weep for their family, left behind, that have a life time of their loss to face, this film brings that reality along for the ride.
