Being a former S.F. soldier with 20+ years, I have a passing knowledge of how things go in real life.
The basic storyline is fine overall; however, the film misses, in so many ways of actual S.F.
operations prep. and execution. It may make for great Hollywood presentation, but closer
adherence to reality would have been better. It was supposed to be a film about what really
happened. So, show how it is really done. The intense, in-depth preparation that an S.F. team
does before even going down range.
Does the term "Brief Back" mean anything?
It should. But it's not even mentioned.
Specific oversights? Okay, in last battle scene: the hero(s)
never have to reload their weapons! No M-4 that I know of carries an four hundred magazine.
Next, everyone speaks good English . . NOT. That's why S.F. takes months (years?) learning
the local languages. It would have been better had they spoken Pashtun with English subtitles
(Ala: "Dances with Wolves").
