    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    So a couple of things about this:

    1) Have to give it credit for making me empathise with Iraq and Taliban insurgents/guerilla fighters. Which I'm sure is the opposite of the movie's intended message.

    2) Have to give it credit for killing the main character in the way they did. No last stand. No heroic charge. Just a headshot. Very realistic. Good to see a movie go that way for once.

    Other than that it's a pile of shit.

    Trying to figure out how to rate this is hard (like the cabin scene har har). It's not good, but it's definitely one to watch again. Mads was amazing.
