    Guy Richie continues his rich reign of form with the always watchable Gyllenhaal as John Kinley, who while on his last tour of Afghanistan is assigned interpreter Ahmed (the excellent Salem) who goes to great lengths to risk his own ife in order to save Kinley after being ambushed by the Taliban. Being based on a true story gives it an extra emotional punch especially when Kinley returns to Afghanistan to save Ahmed & his family from certain death.

    I worked with many 'terps overseas and none, and I mean none, would have the guts and combat experience to pull off what this one did. Still, it wasn't bad. Worth a watch to the average viewer, I'm sure.

    A strong and action packed start which bonds you with the characters; a gripping and tense mid chapter that has you on the edge of your seat; for desert a finale that mixes the starter and main courses to create a film that is a true rollercoaster of emotion. Excellent cast, excellent film, strong message.

    The storyline was good. The acting was incredible. However it was a bit slow for my taste. I expect a faster camera action from a shooting action movie.

    Excellent film! This is based on a true story. So you can't help but feel a connection with the people in the film. Making it more heartfelt and intense. There is action throughout this movie, and it will keep you on your toes. I highly recommend that you see this movie.

    One of the most well done war movies of this generation. I’d put this right up there with American Sniper in terms of most realistic.

    This will be my first review of many. I'll make it quick. This whole entire movie leaves you on the edge of your seat right up until the end wanting to knoe what's going to happen next every second. The flow of the movie is perfect with three acts making the last act a chefs kiss. This movie was so good that towards the half way point I wanted to get on my PC to play a mil-sim but i insistedon finishing this awesome movie. Now, if you're still reading, stop, and go watch it yourself! Watch with a friend or family member who likes war movies!

    The rescue really strains credulity (food? water?) but the message is well-taken and the action solid.

    BERUHT AUF WAHREN BEGEBENHEITEN In Afghanistan geraten amerikanische Soldaten, auf der Suche nach Taliban, unter Beschuss. Nur der Master Sergeant und ein Dolmetscher schaffen es gerade so zu überleben. Doch die Taliban verfolgen die beiden erbarmungslos. Schwer verletzt müssen sie einen Weg zur nächsten Basis finden. Ich mochte die erste Stunde unglaublich gern, jeden Schuss hab ich gefühlt und Jake Gyllenhaal spielt wie immer grandios und man nimmt ihm die Rolle zu 100% ab. Die Action passt, keine Wackelkamera und die Charaktere glaubwürdig. Was mir nicht gefiel war die zweite Hälfte des Films, da dann viel geredet wird und es geht um politisches. Kleines Highlight war noch das Anthony Starr (Homelander) zum Schluss noch Auftritt.
