Trivia Jonas says, "As it says in the Bible the enemy of my enemy is my friend." Unsurprising for this kind of a movie he doesn't know what he's talking about, since it occurs nowhere in the Bible, being rather an old proverb mentioned at wikipedia's "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." See more »
Goofs The Kurdish woman captive is shown from the back to be completely naked, but in the last shot, where she stretches to retrieve a gun, she's wearing panties. See more »
