Use of naval terminology is not a mistake. These are not soldiers in the U.S. Army, they are U.S. Marine Corps. Marines use naval terminology. See more »
A Worth watching experience, after a long time came across a genuine movie describing how life is there in world's most hatted prison, the movie explains how abnormal life becomes and also uncovers the panic situation when you live in a prison where rules are set by other's as clearly and effectively said by Peyman Moadi "It is there life not our's, You want us to follow your rules".
There is no violence in the movie yet it explains a lot about the life in prison and how disturbing it is, and I believe this is the beauty of this movie...well done to Producer and Directors.
Note: I do not support Al-Qaeda, ISIS or any other such organization but I am aware of the fact that there are many people out there who are imprisoned for life, yet they are innocent and world's so called peace loving countries are not willing to free them in fact have ambitions to pile up more and more such cases. Dr. Afia Siddique is one of such example.
