Quite realistic...
5 October 2017 | by harald-hofer-1971See all my reviews

Why do I give it a 9 out of 10? There are several reasons: a) It's quite realistic. b) It's very close to what really happens (as far as the public knows today) c) It's in general well made. Why not a 10 out of 10? We know that the SAS trains with live rounds, as it was shown in the movie. But their targets wouldn't stop the projectiles. During their practicing in the bus the bullets would hit the target, go through, hit something else and from there on they would be unpredictable. No one would sit behind those targets and just watch the training. Same applies for the "house" made of wooden frames and fabric. bullets go through, nobody in the hanger would be safe.
