During the Afghanistan war, several outposts were placed to control the Taliban movement and their supply chain. Camp Keating, situated in a valley surrounded by mountains, was one them. While being shot at by the Talibans was business as usual, they tried to gain respect from local village elders and have them help stop these skirmishes. One day, when 400 Talibans rallied for a surprise attack, it was up to them to leverage the poor defenses and lack of ammo and manpower they had, to ultimately survive and go back to their loved ones.Written by

After the ending credit song starts, the pictures of the KIA soldiers are shown along with a clip of the actor that played every one of them in the movie. After the song ends, there are various clips and interviews with the real soldiers and some of the actors, including two clips from the TV show "An Unlikely Hero" with Ty Carter and some words from him at the very end.

Great war movie, don't get demotivated by the naysayers
This is a great movie. Indeed there are, but there are a couple of great things about it:
this was a movie based on true events
the action scenes are exciting and provide an engaging visual felling
there is no sugar coating, the actions depicted on the movie real and truthful
It follows a similar line to 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, which I liked a lot too. The storytelling around the lives of each soldier are built differently, but the goal here is not to explore the lives of each of them, but to understand the challenges of fighting a war in a place clearly indefensible. There are no protections against the mountains and everyone knows it, even the viewer as you get the first glimpse of the environment the soldiers were put in.
I recommend this movie and I think you will like it if you also like movie based on true events.
