Hard for a vet to watch.
Verified purchase
Hard for a vet to watch. Not because it's traumatic to do so, but because it is drivel and fantasy. Undoubtedly produced by those whom cannot even recognize rookie gun-handling or the all-to-common hijacking of the term 'special forces' by movie-makers who seem totally incapable of understanding what elite units actually do, or comprehending how professionally and tight-knit that they actually operate. It's an okay movie I suppose, but like so many others made by people that fantasize what warfare is like, use those misconceptions to make up story lines, then fail to correctly implement what is so glaringly obvious to anyone with a modicum of experience, this turns out to just be another capitalization on those whom have served and presents a bogus look (IMHO ) of the real struggles that vets actually face. It's entertainment only, like Rambo or Tropic Thunder.

A SUPERB AND HIGHLY MOVING FILM
Verified purchase
NO SPOILERS. THERE IS A REASON THAT AMAZON GIVES A MOVIE A FULL FOUR STARS. THIS IS A HIGHLY VISCERAL, WHICH WILL GIVE YOU A SHOT TO THE GUT, AND VERY COGNITIVE FILM, WHICH WILL MAKE YOU THINK INTROSPECTIVELY ABOUT YOUR SELF AND WHAT IS OCCURRING IN THE WORLD. IT MOREOVER CONTAINS QUITE A BIT OF ACTION, BUT IT IS INTRINSIC TO THE PLOT AND GIVES THE FILM FURTHER GRAVITAS. WHEN A TWIN SISTER RECEIVES NEWS FROM THE ARMY THAT HER BROTHER HAS
PASSED, SHE FIRST MOURNS AND THEN SEEKS TO UNCOVER THE TRUE PURPOSE OF HIS MISSION IN WHAT WAS THEN CALLED BURMA. THE ACTING IS OSCAR LEVEL AND THERE IS A SERIOUS STORY AMIDST THE BREATHTAKING ACTION. JOSH MCCONVILLE
IS THE MALE PROTAGONIST AND PLAYS HIS PART, INCLUDING HIS BOUTS WITH PTSD, TO PERFECTION. THE FOREIGN LOCATION
PHOTOGRAPHY IS VERY CONVINCING, ALTHOUGH CERTAINLY TAKEN IN ANOTHER S.E. ASIAN COUNTRY. THE DENOUEMENT AND
FINALE ARE BOTH SATISFYING AND REALISTIC. QUITE PHENOMENAL A MOVIE.

Awesome Movie About PTSD
Verified purchase
I wouldn't call this an action movie, although there is certainly some action involved... It's a really well done flick about PTSD and worth a watch... camera work is good, audio is good, special effects are good, acting was REALLY good, plot / story is cool...

It's actually pretty original too, which is rare these days... Worth a watch...

Good movie: good moral: technical flaws.
Verified purchase
The movie portrays 4 Australian Special Operations Soldiers on a mission, which needs to be accomplished for numerous reasons, moral and in the national Interest. High point is the survivor, coming to terms with his PTSD.
Technically (tactically, they did not portray trained soldiers on a mission: e.g. talking and arguing amongst themselves, bunching up, etc. The 'enemy soldiers' were often standing around, waiting to be shot--this after contact and hostilities had begun. Strong, but tenuous ending--just like life sometimes.

Thou shalt not kill
Verified purchase
Excellent acting, set, grip, captioning, writing, and theatrical flow. Captivating, gruesome, and desperate. Horrors of war versus joys of life. Basically, an outstanding film. Bravo...
