Did You Know?


The producers wanted the film to star Omar Sharif and Gerard Butler, with the war scenes to have the same special effects as the Oscar winning 'Hurt Locker' and be filmed in 3D for the proposed £100k budget. Needless to say the producer's wish list was not fulfilled. When questioned as to why that could not happen, writer/director Paul Knight simply replied 'I can perform many things but miracles ain't one of them'. See more »

Good low budget movie
7 October 2019 | by trudyjgrantSee all my reviews

It's always good to step back from the Hollywood mainstream 'money is no issue movies' and watch a movie made on a low budget with a lot of passion.

The writer/director has been very public about the goings on behind the scenes so I know how much hard work went into this project and the crazy £3.000.000 Tax fraud story that overshadowed the debut film from Andrea Mclean of 'Loose Women' fame.

Looking passed the low budget and some wooden acting by a couple of the cast this was an enjoyable watch with an interesting story.
