A small unit of U.S. soldiers, alone at the remote Combat Outpost Keating, located deep in the valley of three mountains in Afghanistan, battles to defend against an overwhelming force of Taliban fighters in a coordinated attack. The Battle of Kamdesh, as it was known, was the bloodiest American engagement of the Afghan War in 2009 and Bravo Troop 3-61 CAV became one of the most decorated units of the 19-year conflict.
For me, what could have been an acceptable movie was ruined by the worst scripting I can ever recall. Should I try it without the sound? I might actually like it better that way but I’m not spending another 99 cents rental cost to find out.
This movie is full of weird clichés by the end. I think the beginning is interesting it could’ve went somewhere but it didn’t. I thought the last scenes was way too long it made it less impactful. Then it had a hero cliché I just thought was misplaced and annoying.
I’m so mad that I paid for this movie. When the director could not do any better then a Walmart kids soldier costume he should have stopped there. But no he continued and gave the garbage lines with garbage war scenes. Then to finish it off he didn’t even dedicate the movie to any of the people who’s story he was trying to spread. As a combat vet please don’t waist your money on this movie.
