We've spent over a decade slogging it out with the Taliban. Now no more British soldiers remain at Camp Bastion, we scrutinize the British army's role in Afghanistan. Was this ever our war? It's the question emerging director, Tom Petch, asks us in this clever, reflective movie.Petch takes us back to 2006, a year of heated conflict; a small unit is sent on a three day patrol. An unexpected ambush from allied special forces in the region triggers an increase in Taliban attack, which prolongs the patrol for nearly two weeks. As the heat of the conflict intensifies, the unfortunately named Operation Icarus pushes individual to reach their limits.An already declining morale really builds speed when likeable Welshman, Taff, who is always cracking jokes and diffusing the tension in the unit takes a direct hit to the chest and is rushed to the trauma centre. The bullet hits all the boys hard and an out of touch captain fails to patch up the punctured morale, which bleeds away.A former tank officer in the Queen's Own Hussars, Tom Petch's army experience shows in the film. The familiar army characters are all very believable and the dialogue spot on, particularly the military lingo and the cutting banter, trademarks of the British army. As the conflict intensifies with more attacks from the Taliban, however, that friendly banter turn viscous and everyone starts taking personal digs.There's a story of class struggle and a captain's inability to discipline his unit. When a solider refuses to go on patrol, staff sergeant 'Sol' (Nicholas Beveny) fronts up and says 'Do you know what the f**k you're saying soldier?' Captain Richardson (Ben Righton) takes a more sympathetic tone, crouches down and tells him he can stay at the base helping the lieutenant with signals. Sergeant gives a disapproving nod to his captain.The captain comes across like a school teacher trying too hard to fit in with the kids and failing to earn their respect. He takes favourites and goes easy on people with softer voices. As one soldier remarks 'we all get the same medal, just some of us get shot at.' It highlights a palpable tension between ranks.But everyone in the unit struggles and the cinematography does a brilliant job of capturing the sense of isolation and abandonment that all the soldiers experience. The soldiers are 'out there like sitting ducks', as sergeant Sol puts it, without armoured vehicles, lacking ammunition and low on basic supplies. There's a sense they've been abandoned in the barren purgatorial landscape. And they're just holding up until it's time to go home.The Patrol isn't going to be everyone's cup of tea. Although the plots aimlessness may be a deliberate attempt to capture the soldiers sense of aimlessness, it does tax your patience. And like the soldiers on patrol you find yourself struggling to stay alert, feeling the sand settling in the corners of your eyes. The monotony of the patrol is occasionally broken by very realistic and heart thumping firefights, but there just isn't enough of it. Still, it's a great debut for a low budget film and paints a candid portrait of the war, highlighting how many of the boys' hearts just weren't in it.

But the ending simply isn't satisfatory, leaving the wheel too early and a raw feeling in the stomach.

Matt H (ca) wrote: Making Astaire amd Jane Powell brother/sister really drains the dramatic tension out of the film, especially since they do the majority of the dancing together. Winston Chuchill's daughter Sarah is a bore, at least in this. Just a bottom of the barrell musical, not even Fred's dancing on he walls scene can help to save this movie. All of the musical numbers are subpar. and even Astaire's dancing suffers. He also looks older here than he does in later films like The Band Wagon.
Adam R (fr) wrote: Some skilled camera work and stunning visual effects, but I really didn't care for this movie. There wasn't much of a plot and the pacing didn't work well at all. Most of the film was boring until it got really weird at the end. (First and only viewing - 5/16/2010)
Alexandria J (us) wrote: I saw a little bit of this movie on television a few years before and was disappointed by it. I couldn't keep my eyes on it and so, I ignored it. My experience of the movie back then was that it wasn't what I expected.In the beginning, it has Nim narrating the story. Nim is a spirited little girl who inhabits an isolated island with her father, who's a scientist and communicates with a reclusive author of the novel she's reading. So the plot wasn't great neither.This film is a tad too annoying, too funny, too fun, too suspenseful/serious, and fascinating. The music was too dramatic which was of course due to the film. The actors, compared to the poster were a pretty bad pick, though they all did well. I give it a 6.1.
