Guy's rifle is a Vektor R4, a modified Galil ARM made under licences in South Africa. The R4 and its variants are issued weapons to every branch of South Africa Defense Forces. It is identifiable from the slanted handguard and the scope mount slots on the port side of the reciever and the lack of a carry handle. The sights have also been removed but the R4 utilizes a larger protective hood on the front sight and is easily identifiable and can be used on the Galil. With good ammunition, the R4 is capable of superb accuracy. See more »

Great movie and easily Dennis Quaid's best work. Very tough to watch at times but in the end extremely rewarding and cathartic.
Its so appreciated that some artists in the world have something to say and do a timely, thoughtful movie to tell the world what they are missing or ignoring. You can either see what they have to say, or see the next assembly line CGI garbage. I suggest that any mature moviegoer give this a look.
There is some unexpected humor, a lot of horror and carnage and heartache, and I do suggest you keep the tissues close by for a some incredibly emotional scenes.
There is not a whole lot of dialogue which is also much appreciated. Most of the time actors are better when they have nothing to say but alot to express. The actors in this movie are all very natural and real. Not the least of which was the baby! One of the best performances by a new born I've ever seen..this child is beautiful.
Thanks to Dennis Quaid who probably made the equivalent of cab fare for this one..you did a great job in an invaluable movie.
