Storyline

John Porter leads his unit into battle trying to rescue the CEO of a British weapons manufacturing company captured in Iraq, just before the invasion started. His team is joined by Hugh Collinson, operative of British military intelligence. The operation almost goes awry when Collinson kills larger portion of Porter's team, and blames a teenage suicide bomber, As'ad, Porter previously saved. The surviving members of the team manage to rescue their target, and Porter rejects Collinson's offer to joint Section 20, a new unit within military intelligence, doubting Collinson's account of the rescue operation incident and resigns from the SAS.

Goofs

Simply shooting someone in the head would not guarantee that their thumb would stay on a dead man's switch.

Even if his muscles stayed contracted, the triggering device could of been knocked loose from his hand when it hit the ground. See more »
