Trivia The IR Camera that Ben uses has the same settings (.95/20/0 degrees C), day or night wherever and whenever it was used because the on-loan IR camera was dropped and broke during the filming. Then IR footage was created using video effects to resemble actual IR camera footage. (According to director Daniel Myrick). See more »
Goofs During the failed helicopter extraction at 0:33 the team uses a couple of great techniques to make them more visible to the inbound helicopter crew. They attach "chem-lites" to their gear and with one attached to a length of chord, twirl the chem-lite into what is referred to as a "buzz-saw". The only problem - they use green chem-lites which are virtually invisible to night vision goggles the aircrews would be using. True buzz-saws and other markings are done with either red or infrared (IR) chem-lites which are very pronounced under NVGs and harder (red) or impossible(IR) to see with the naked eye. See more »
