Storyline

Battle-scarred and disillusioned by the war, Corporal Chris Merrimette is put in charge of a unit whose next mission is to resupply a remote outpost on the edge of Taliban-controlled territory. While driving through the hostile Helmand province, a Navy SEAL flags down their convoy and enlists the unit on an operation of international importance: they must help an Afghan woman famous for her defiance of the Taliban escape the country. Without tanks or air support, Merrimette and his team will need all the courage and firepower they can muster to fight their way across the war-torn country and shepherd the woman to safety.

Goofs

The convoy of four vehicles are driving down a road which may be in enemy hands with possible IEDs yet the vehicles are less than 10 feet apart. In this situation, an explosion on any one of them would damage at least two of them. There should be more separation between each vehicle. See more »

Surprisingly not that bad.
11 August 2014 | by oomblongdadaSee all my reviews

So first off, this isn't really a sequel. It shares some themes with jarhead and its about Marines, but the storyline is completely unrelated and has a lot more action.

This is a relatively low budget attempt at a great war action/drama and although the writing lacks a lot of polish, the combat scenes are okay, the camera work is okay and the actors all seem to be doing their best with the clunky dialogue. The storyline itself isn't very original but again, its okay.

The film follows a Corporal who is considering leaving the Marines and explores ptsd, survivors guilt, etc. basically war is hell but it forms great bonds. Again, this isn't done exceptionally well but it does keep the movie from becoming a brainless action movie and brings a sense of drama to the film.

As a sequel to Jarhead this movie fails, but as a standalone action/drama flick it's actually fairly enjoyable.
