Storyline

This is the true story of the most highly decorated British patrol since the Boer war: an eight man SAS team inserted behind Iraqi lines during the Gulf War in January 1991. Their mission was to take out the scud missiles which Saddam Hussein was using to terrorize his enemies, as well as to sever strategic communication lines between Baghdad and North West Iraq. This top secret mission was called "Bravo Two Zero" and it was commanded by Sergeant Andy McNab. Of the eight who went out, only five returned. Dropped into "scud alley" carrying 210-pound packs, McNab and his men soon found themselves surrounded by Saddam's army. Their radios didn't work; the weather was brutally cold. And they had been spotted. Written by Joanathan Amiran <pinkman@plastiv.com>

Trivia

Reference is made to Breaker Morant. Breaker was a Australian Solider who was court-martialled and executed by the British commander in South Africa, Lord Kitchener, during the Boer War. Morant's famous last words before being shot were "Shoot straight, you bastards! Don't make a mess of it!". See more »

Goofs

At approximately 36 mins, Andy checks a compass attached to his rifle. This would not happen as proximity to a mass of metal (such as a rifle or a steel helmet) could affect the reading due to magnetic interference. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
BBC Announcer: For Allied Forces in the Golf the preparation is over. The real battle, only days away. This relentless activity is a reminder that if final-hour diplomacy stumbles, then action against Iraq will be both certain and uncompromising. Saddam Hussein says it will be the mother of all battles. President Bush demanded that conflict must be swift and decisive.
President George H. W. Bush: This will not be another Vietnam. This will not be a protracted, drawn-out war.

Fascinating and riveting
22 February 2005 | by jnefinnSee all my reviews

I first saw a documentary on the Discovery channel about the mission that is portrayed in this movie. I know a lot about the history of the Gulf War but I had never heard about this particular mission. I was completely fascinated as to what these soldiers went through and how they managed to deal with their incredible situation.

Then by pure coincidence, about a week later I stumbled across this movie on cable. The movie dramatized the mission slightly and gave it a very personal feeling, which is captured wonderfully by the actors portraying the soldiers. The movie gives a very real sense of the comradery, dedication, and professionalism that Special Forces troops exhibit. I would definitely recommend this movie if you have a fascination or appreciation for the military.
