After a failed assassination attempt, a soldier finds himself stranded in the desert. Exposed to the elements, he must survive the dangers of the desert and battle the psychological and physical tolls of the treacherous conditions.
In the middle of the desert, an area filled with 33 million blast mines scattered everywhere, marine sniper Sergeant Mike Stevens is on a mission to locate and neutralize the leader of a terrorist cell. After three months and six days in the desert, one single moment of hesitation is enough to blow the entire mission, and now Sergeant Stevens is stranded in a hostile guerrilla territory all alone, and to make matters worse, with his left foot on an active mine. Against the harsh environment, without water, the sergeant must stay glued to the spot and use his Marine training, his resourcefulness and his perseverance for the next 52 hours until a convoy arrives in his area. Between the scalding heat of the day and the freezing cold of the night, if Sergeant Stevens wants to survive, he must fight not only the mighty forces of nature but also the greatest adversary of them all: himself.Written by

The objective lens does not have a "Sunshade", at best at 7;29 minutes the "Sunshade" is only about a 1/4th inch. The flip up cover does not provide any form of "sunshade" either. The learned modification is to use a piece of rubber hose from a vehicle radiator hose to create a "Sunshade". The shadows of the targets indicate that Mike and Tommy are looking towards the Sun.

It was too obvious, it did not have any surprisingly turns ore twist of any kind. And the main actor is to typical American patriot, i go to war and i don't know why, i am a soldier and so on.. And all the time you know whats coming next, and that makes it boring.. waste of time if you are not very narrow and just want to waste time and eat popcorn.
