I often wondered why these guys wouldn't be recruited by the military forces, because they'd be the best candidates for the Special Force, the Rangers, or the Navy Seals. Their guts and their willpower to achieve the impossibility are beyond believability. I often found myself forgetting to breath during watching these documentary films, they are the ultimate thrillers, not those so-called movie thrillers.
