Marius's character is played by a real Commando Marine of the french navy. He was commando than drill instructor for commando during 22 years. He do not play, his role in this movie is what he did for a long time as R Lee Ermey in Full Metal Jacket. See more »

Good start, moderate in the middle, fail at the end
Movie started very good by giving sense you are really part of the special forces team. All the humor in order to get over the fear of the operation. End the start of the operation was pretty good it was a simple plan but with a good execution except the sniper part since I haven't a sniper without a buddy to watch operation area.
After the operation int evacuation part it was really a messed-up story. Two choppers full of soldiers are afraid of some tali**ban punk with a rocket launcher (not Stinger) by the way rocket-man had wasted its only ammunitions... I think one mini gun should sweep them off even if it did not kill them all I am pretty sure that all tali**ban cockroaches gonna sh**it their pants ...
After this point everything got pretty illogical in every way possible both technical and emotional.
To sum up :
Still watchable. Acting and the scenes are quite good. But script play and reality is below average. if screenplay was good it would 7-8 over 10
