From aboard the IMDboat at San Diego Comic-Con, Kevin Smith talks to the cast of "Teen Wolf" about the solemn yet celebratory panel for the upcoming season. This news and more in our Guide to Comic-Con.
The crew of a medical helicopter suffers an accident when helping a joint force of USA and United Nations troops under Spanish command division in Afghanistan. The Spanish army has only one night to organize the rescue of the crew and injured, but what seems routine turns into hell once they receive the order to rescue the helicopter as well. Things only get worse when during the night a huge a concentration of Talibans begin surround them.
This movie plays in the same league as Hawsack Ridge,Zero Dark Thirty, The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, Michael Bay, o Lone survivor. With a mastery use of suspense and cinematic tempo, Spanish director Adolfo Martínez uses all elements of the story, based on real facts. 90 minutes that traps the audience, you do not get a pause, everything is in crescendo.. The narrative is rich and varied; from the military and the role of the doctor, to the enemies that surge from dark and the use of dust as an innovative cinematic element, not mere decorative. A film not to be missed.
