Storyline

In September 2006, a 3 man patrol of Paras sets off from their outpost overlooking Kajaki Dam in southern Afghanistan, to engage the Taliban. As they make their way across a dried out river bed one of them steps on a mine left from the Russian intervention some 25 years before. His colleagues rush to his aid only to find they are surrounded by mines and every move threatens serious injury or death. Written by Andrew de Lotbiniere

Trivia

At the film's first test screening, director Paul Katis was initially depressed as the audience traipsed out without saying a word. He thought that they didn't like the film, when in fact they were traumatized by what they had just seen. See more »

Goofs

When the initial patrol approach the minefield, an SA80 rifle is seen with both the SUSAT sight fitted and the Iron Sights Fore Sight also fitted. This is incorrect, if the rifle has a SUSAT sight, the Iron Sight Fore Sight is always removed. See more »

Crazy Credits

After the song is heard in the credits, the soundtrack changes to a recording of radio communications of an action in Afghanistan. See more »

Too painful to watch.
15 May 2017 | by alex-flachSee all my reviews

Having served this film is often too painful to watch (the reason for my giving it a 9/10). It expresses the suffering and comradeship of warfare.

This isn't just a film it's an education for a society disassociated from war. For those critics war isn't glorious or romantic. It's dirty and boring, and yes, people screw up. If you're stuck in a minefield without all the Gucci kit it's a bayonet and you're belt buckle, and it's hot and tiring and you make mistakes. Soldiers (at least the Toms) don't speak received English (so maybe you might have to pay more attention to what is being said)and yes they swear, live with it!

There are plenty of wonderful war films where the (usually American) protagonists win the day with either a fashionable injury or glorious death; this isn't one of them. There is however humour and pathos in war and this expressed in loads. If everyone knew what war was really like nobody would want anything to do with one.
