The crew of a medical helicopter suffers an accident when helping a joint force of USA and United Nations troops under Spanish command division in Afghanistan. The Spanish army has only one night to organize the rescue of the crew and injured, but what seems routine turns into hell once they receive the order to rescue the helicopter as well. Things only get worse when during the night a huge concentration of Talibans begin surrounding them.Written by

One of the best foreign films I've seen
I have to admit, I had no idea going into this film it was a foreign production and subtitled.
At first I was "oh no, I hate seeing subtitled films" and had partially given up 15 minutes in, but still gave it a chance. I'm glad I did! It really elevates the senses once the conflicts start.
This 'based on true events' film was executed quite well. The directing was excellent, the cinematography and editing on point, the set locations amazing and the acting was very convincing.
It was even interesting that the AS332 Superpuma helicopter used for the film is the same helicopter that actually crashed in Afghanistan.
It would have been nice if it was dubbed in English so I wouldn't have to look down to read the subtitles and either miss the scenery or the action, but nevertheless, overall it was an intense film that I thoroughly enjoyed.
A well deserved 9/10 from me
