||Afghanistan 2006. One of a patrol of British soldiers accidentally steps on a mine. Others rush to his aid. There are more explosions, and several of them are lying there with limbs blown off, others marooned on the spot. This is a Soviet minefield left over from their invasion of the country. There seems to be no answer as the injured lose blood and conciousness, the others helpless at the edge of the wahdi.
||A desert scene. Soldiers casually dressed – its supposed to be an easy billet. Several explosions, many distressing scenes of injuries, soldiers with legs missing and punctured chests.
||This is difficult to watch for much of the time. Doubtless the drama is as close to real events as possible since the tension is relentless, right up to the end. It is the first film I have written about which made 100% for the critics reviews on Rotten Tomatoes.
