Goofs

When initially inserting in an open MH-47G, the team can be heard singing "The Ballad of the Green Berets". In fact, the inside of an aircraft like this is much too loud to hear people talking to you unless you are very close to them and practically screaming. See more »

Dumb
21 February 2021 | by mkellymercSee all my reviews

Totally asinine and unrealistic. I've been to Afghanistan. The Afghans act nothing like these actors. And real soldiers SF or not don't act like the Americans portrayed here. This movie is worse than old 80's Goran and Globus action flicks. Don't waste your time. This flick SUCKS!
