[Highly rated reviewer]
[Highly rated reviewer]What a great action film with real poignant moments throughout, Djimon Hounsou a personal favorite of mine was excellent with a strong supporting cast diane kruger did surprisingly well. The film does a good job of a portraying the harshness of war.

Well done "les bleus"By a customer , 16 Dec 2013Excellent movie - action, emotions and drama. This film gives you a first hint how merciless war can be... definitely worth watching!
Well made nonsenseBy coryaka (4 reviews) , 16 Dec 2013This is incredibly well made nonsense. Astonishing to look at with very tense moments and action scenes. The problems are with the plot and character motivations. The Taliban are just mindless morons, led by a very unTaliban like leader(who apparently doesn't like to speak his own language!) . The French soldiers are too good to be true self sacrificing Rambo wannabees, who disregard their own future lives for some Journalist who will probably only do the same thing again in the future. The director is very talented and should direct a Bond movie or something at some point but certainly needs someone to teach him about plot credibility!
Starts well, gets silly towards the endBy mj55 (175 reviews) , 15 Dec 2013Initially this looks like a shoot-em-up video game - lots of action from a really efficient special forces team. Part way through however it turns into a foot chase across the Hindu Kush and loses a lot of momentum and interest. Towards the end it gets a bit silly and you start asking yourself questions about the credibility of the plot and journey,
Excellent FilmBy a customer , 13 Dec 2013Good film - well worth a watch, especially as it's on Instant. Much better than the average 3 stars it's been rated as.
Good tactical fire fightsBy a customer , 13 Dec 2013Good tactical fire fights and emotional ending. I can't speak for everyone but as someone who has seen their far share in real life and on film definitely worth a watch! Straight into action so the no character build up.
