Storyline

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.

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

An MRAP (possibly a Buffalo or Cougar) appears in the motor pool during the first scene which is set in 2003, MRAPs were not in common use until around 2007 onward by the US military. See more »

Felt like a good documentary
13 July 2017 | by TheTopDawgSee all my reviews

Lots of war-type films have come out over the years, and most are OK to meh, but something about this one was done better than most. Aside from the exceptional directing by Fernando Coimbra, it's not like it had top actors in it, but his directing gave it a feel of a documentary/drama, and added interesting action and drama twist to it. Better than I expected, although slowly paced. It's a 7/10 from me
