One of the best foreign films I've seen
27 July 2017 | by TheTopDawgCriticSee all my reviews

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
