Trivia

Will Poulter was originally casted as Brandon Bartle, but dropped out to star in the Comedy 'War Machine' alongside Brad Pitt. See more »

Goofs

Bartle and Murphy address non-commissioned officers as "sir" numerous times throughout the film. NCOs are referred to by their rank (sergeant, staff sergeant) in the US Army, Only commissioned officers are referred to or addressed as "sir" (warrant officers can be addressed as"Mr (their last name)" or as "sir" . This is a serious error in protocol and would have been correct by the NCO being addressed immediately. See more »

Army, not Marines and Airforce
24 June 2018 | by See all my reviews

Can the morons that make these movies try to research a little before the make these inaccurate wastes of our time. Army Soldiers dont call Sergeants Sir, thats the Marines, and the Army has Posts, not Bases, thats the AirForce. The movie was very slow and boring. Maybe OK to watch on free tv or cable, but dont purchase it on Pay Per View.
