Trivia

Although much of the filming took place near White Sands Missile Range, the scenes involving military encampments were not part of an actual US army installation. The structures were leased from AKS Military, a private company. AKS also provided the military structures for Transformers (2007). See more »

Goofs

Since the BM-21 Grad multiple rocket launcher is a long range weapon, there is no point waiting for its reload time to attack the weapon. At close range, operators can be taken out any time. See more »

True story... yeah right!
23 May 2020 | by reddice26See all my reviews

This story presents itself as a true story, but rest assured, it is not. Imagine a PG-13 Rambo riding on a horse and destroying rocket launchers, tanks and an army of 15.000 soldiers and you've got this movie basically. The Afghani are all cannon fodder, equal to the Rambo series.

Now why the 7 stars? Because of the action. Just sit back, relax and enjoy this total piece of fiction that has been marketed as a true story to draw in hordes of Americans. The action is pretty good, despite its silliness.
