Trivia

A first version of the movie headed by the producers was presented during the Sundance Film Festival. But following, the mixed reception of the audience, the movie was reedited by Moors point of view. 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 »

No military adviser on set???
25 December 2018 | by combatproven-12615See all my reviews

These studios that want to make military movies need to hire advisers, I'm sure there are a million vets out there that will do it just to see that it's done correctly, I would gladly. I got 4 mins into the film before I turned it off. Specialist insignia upside down on uniform, people calling an NCO "sir". C'mon now, it's 2018. There's probably more war vets alive in the history of America than ever before, least you can do is get it right if you're going to portray us!
