Storyline

When an allied charge on the German lines goes horribly wrong, one man finds himself stranded in No Man's Land. Reuniting with two other survivors, together they must help each other as they charge into the unknown across the muddy wasteland as the Germans quickly hone in on the desperate trio. Tensions rise between the soldiers as they are surrounded by explosions of grenades with the constant rattle of machine guns in their ears. Time is running out as they make their way back over enemy lines as an impending attack could soon take them out. Written by Lionsgate

Trivia

Originally, the film ended after the prison sequence. Test audiences felt the ending was too bleak, so the filmmakers went back six months later and filmed the additional 'home' scene that caps the film. Directors Johan Earl & Adrian Powers have said that if they had a director's cut, they would return to the original ending. See more »

Goofs

Sgt Major Wilkins looks at his watch several times during the film, the watch is of a much more modern style than found at the time and it is also a quartz movement as is evident by the the ticking of the second hand which jumps one second intervals instead of a steady sweeping movement made by mechanical movements.

Dramatically not there
23 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Alright attempt for a low budget film never the less it flows more like a TV movie.

The character development is very poor, as well as some of the acting in key scenes. The side story of the wife is very corny with an under developed path.

The sound track was was an over kill I really felt that they could have backed off a lot I think it was over used.

Set aside the horrible British accent. And bad special effect (though I understand on such a tight budget that that the special effects is as good as they could hope for) the film for me lacked any real substance.

But good try.
