Storyline

During the Iraq War, U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Shane Matthews is a sniper who is sent to investigate a pipeline construction site in the desert of the country, with his spotter, Sergeant Allen Isaac. The pair patiently wait 22 hours on over-watch before determining that the site is clear. Matthews proceeds to investigate the site, but is shot by an Iraqi sniper. Isaac tries to rescue the dying Matthews, but he is also wounded in the right knee and has his radio damaged and his water bottle destroyed in the process..

The Wall
22 December 2019 | by questl-18592See all my reviews

This is a pretty simple movie, really. One man, a wall, a voice on the radio and an unending tension. That simplicity presents a strong challenge though. Aaron Taylor-Johnson has to carry the whole thing pretty much by himself and he does a great job.

It's an entertaining movie, well acted and paced. It's good, just not quite great.
