Trivia

Kajaki Damn, the place the cast and the real servicemen were positioned to protect, was important as a fourth turbine was due to be installed and bring power to most of the province, due to the danger of the area, and high enemy activity, this fourth turbine was never assembled, and the parts remain there to this day.

Goofs

The Chinook seen in the film clearly fake. When in flight the rotor blades are all drooping down, as if static on the ground. Real helicopter rotor systems "cone" upwards in flight. Scenes with the helicopter on the ground also appear to CGI and lack the correct details of a real CH-47. 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 »

You will cringe, laugh, cry and hold your breath in shocked disbelief and utter horror: one of the most intense and most touching war films I have ever seen
14 November 2015 | by gogoschka-1See all my reviews

There's only a handful of so called "war films" I consider to be films about the actual reality of war. HBO's mini-series 'Generation Kill' is probably the most realistic when it comes to the depiction of modern warfare - but 'Kajaki' (also known as 'Kilo Two Bravo') gives it a run for its money: this criminally under-seen masterpiece should be considered a modern classic. The production values are fantastic; the cinematography, the script and the direction are absolutely flawless - but you won't notice them. What you will notice is the outstanding ensemble of actors, portraying characters in a way you forget you're watching a movie. They will make you cringe, laugh, cry and hold your breath in shocked disbelief and utter horror.

This film had me literally on the edge of my seat the entire time, but what really grabs you by the gut is not just the suspense and the horror; it's the relationships between these soldiers and how they look out for each other. How close men become when their lives depend on each other has probably rarely been depicted on screen with the intensity and no-bullshît, keep-it-real attitude as is the case here. And knowing that what you're seeing actually happened only adds to the experience (for this film IS an experience). Definitely not the kind of war film that you come across very often. Superb. 9 stars out of 10.
