A story worth knowing
4 October 2020 | by shaunnico2See all my reviews

The story of a group of young combat assault troops who'd only had 10 days training before being thrown into action. Some strong performances by the younger cast with Megan Fox doing a decent job. You do care for the characters and want them to survive, which is not always the case in some movies. The battle scenes were very well put together and quite intense with a good mix of real explosions and special effects, the way it should be. In fact you can't tell there's special affects so again, we'll done. This ranks as one of the better war movies, highly recommend for any war movie fan.
