Did You Know?


Glen Powell plays a loud and proud Texan soldier and was required to pack on 20 pounds in three weeks. He said that it took a suitcase full of protein powder and advice he got from Sylvester Stallone on the set of The Expendables 3 (2014): "Just get your forearms and traps to bulge and you'll look massive on camera." Powell showed off his beefed up physique in a shirtless workout scene in the film doing intense barbell deadlifts. See more »


The turrets of the Humvees in Ocres unit include protections (armored shields, ballistic glass viewing ports) that were not in use at the time of the invasion of Iraq in 2003. In point of fact those came about as a result of the experiences of American troops both during and after the invasion. See more »

Felt like a good documentary
13 July 2017 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Lots of war-type films have come out over the years, and most are OK to meh, but something about this one was done better than most. Aside from the exceptional directing by Fernando Coimbra, it's not like it had top actors in it, but his directing gave it a feel of a documentary/drama, and added interesting action and drama twist to it. Better than I expected, although slowly paced. It's a 7/10 from me
