I Am Soldier follows Mickey Tomlinson (Tom Hughes), a military chef, who attempts the most dangerous military selection known to man: The Special Air Service (S.A.S.) selection. The S.A.S. Is the United Kingdom's most renowned Special Forces Regiment, tasked with life threatening missions in some of the most dangerous places on the planet. Mickey has more military experience than simply being a chef, something he doesn't let on to the other candidates... Mickey is smashed by this selection process - his mind, body and soul scream for mercy as he endures torturous speed-marches over the steepest mountains, running for his life during 'Escape and Evasion' and then facing the most evil interrogation possible, during the deadly phase known as: 'Tactical Questioning.' Even after everything, there is still only one way you can really prove yourself: in combat... Many try to get into the S.A.S. Only the elite make it. Written by
Although here and there it surely reminds of other movies and although some footage leans towards TV quality, this film is essentially nice.
It's the story of an initiation and even if you never fancied of enrolling yourself in an elite corp you can't help but empathizing with the young man nicely depicted by writer/director Ronnie Thompson and nicely played by Tom Hughes.
You won't truly believe the story and in the end you won't be left with any moral lesson, have learned something new or deepened any knowledge you already had. The girl (beautiful actress Alex Reid) however is attractive, Noel Clarke plays a catching Staff Sergeant Carter and if your expectations are not excessively high you'll feel nicely entertained.
