    This commander is ask to defend the local village against the taliban forces, tthe under lying theme is while this soldier gives up alot to defend ur country military families r almost forgotten.the end is somewhat interesting..the routine mission caught in a heavy crossfire,in order to save his men. co Pederse must make a decision .that is curical. Highly recommended

    A must for any Afghanistan or even Iraq War veterans. Outstanding acting and well written script that vets certainly can relate to and understand without over dramatics typical to many mainstream movies.

    First off this movie is made in danish. We changed the language to english, and it was just hard to watch and follow. The actors mouths and the translation obviously don't match up, and that drives me crazy. We made it 20 mins in before I had to.shut it off.

    Not your typical war story. Shows the difficulty of making a quick decision on limited on hand information. Is it more important to protect your troops or risk collateral civilian casualities. Interesting to watch once but not a keeper.

    THE MOVIE WAS BASED ON AN INTERESTING IDEA... HOWEVER THE FACT THAT IT WAS DANISH AND HAD TO HAVE THE AUDIO SWITCHED TO ENGLISH KIND OF MADE IT TOUGH TO WATCH AS IT DID NOT MATCH UP WELL. SORTA LIKE AN OLD GODZILLA MOVIE.

    One of my new favorite war movies. Great, realistic depiction of combat coupled with a moral dilemma. Cross between Black Hawk Down and Restreppo.

    Dutch is the first language. Once you switch it the English sounds horrible. Don't buy unless you know dutch
