Goofs

The Air Chief Marshall's Aide is portrayed as a Major General, which is far too high a rank for that kind of role, plus the actor is too young to be playing a general. In fact, a typical Aide to a general command would be a Captain or a Major. See more »

I really wanted to like this...

... but overall it just falls flat. As others have pointed out, the locations are excellent. They nailed the period in set and costume. But, the dialogue and storyline are simply terrible. Amateur writing, with characters spewing lines that were meant to be clever but just fall flat. The acting surprises me, too, because these are veterans that should know better. But, I suppose with a script that is just unsalvageable and bad direction, even good actors can't save it.
