Goofs

Early in the movie when Issac is removing blocks from the wall to make an opening to look through with his scope, the blocks fall and crush his hand, specifically his right index, or "trigger finger". That finger is shown bloody and misshapen, possibly broken, for a vast majority of the remainder of the movie. At the end, he is able to make a shot at the enemy sniper using that same finger and it is shown to be uninjured. Precise trigger control is critically important to making accurate shots, particularly for a sniper. Making a long range shot like that with an injured or broken finger is highly unlikely.

Matthews: [sighting through his scope from a bush] Nothin'. Hit n' run. Whoever it was they're gone. War's over, he got the memo.

Matthews: Allen? Ize!
Isaac: [on his radio] What?
Matthews: We got no movement, not a sign of a shadow... How long we been here, man? 18, plus?
Isaac: 20.
Matthews: [sighs] Jesus. There's nobody fuckin' out there, man.

Two American soldiers are trapped by a sniper with only a wall for protection. What follows is a cat and mouse game of twenty questions. Sadly by the end you never get an answers. I am NOT A FAN of ambiguous endings! If you are going to tell a story, then tell a story. This film was half-assed. Skip it. There are much better films about servicemen and women than this.
