A soldier enlists just before the 9/11. He is not a brave man--simply volunteering to defend freedom. Arriving in Iraq in 2003, just after the occupation of Bagdad, with a few soldiers of his infantry platoon, he is sent to provide water to a village whose infrastructure was destroyed. Simple things however, such as water transportation, water distribution and the reconstruction of the plumbing became a challenge in war environment.

Did You Know?


Writer Chris Roessner said that Henry Cavill was perfect for the role because besides his respect for the military, he had the perfect look for the character. Roessner said, "He sure as hell looked the part. I mean the guy is Superman. You've seen the films. He's in ridiculous shape. And these Special Forces soldiers, when they aren't on missions they're working out. That's the lifestyle and the body type follows. So that was clear." See more »


Both M-60A3 main battle tanks and AH-1 attack helicopters are shown being used by the US Army in the movie. By the time of the invasion of Iraq in 2003 both had been replaced in service by the M-1 Abrams and AH-64 Apache. See more »

22 April 2017 | by Saleh AliSee all my reviews

it is actually a very good movie considering it has been filmed by a TV network (netflix) the movie writing wasn't great but it got some good lines and quote and funny moments too ... and the directing was kind of fine but it could be better... What i hated the most that they had some good actors but they didn't use they full potential such as Henry Cavill and Nicholas Hoult and speaking of Henry Cavill hell i still seeing superman when i look at him! finally it is a good movie and i recommend it if you have no thing else to watch....
