Special Forces

Amidst the savage battlegrounds, Afghanistan war correspondent Elsa Casanova (Diane Kruger, Unknown) is willing to risk everything to get her story, even her life. Taken hostage by the feared Taliban she faces imminent execution. As the news reaches government officials an elite commando force is despatched. But when all their radio equipment is destroyed during conflict, Elsa and her rescuers find themselves stranded. Relentlessly pursued by enemy soldiers, their only hope of escape is to trek across a hostile, unforgiving mountain terrain in a deadly quest for survival.

    A rather compelling story about a Special Forces team that goes to retrieve a war correspondent that has been captured by the Taliban. There are a few familiar faces in this film such as Diane Kruger, Djimon Hounsou, Denis Menochet and Tchéky Karyo. Apart from the actual depiction of a country torn between western influence and fundamentalist ideologies, it's a really cinematic film with stunning landscapes and a great story. I think that the director of the film, wanted to give a none-Americanised view of what the men in a special forces unit have to go through and what the give up, so that others can live there life. In a genre filled with bad war movies, this stands out and really is a good movie about war, mostly thanks to good actors and a good story behind it.

    4/5. Fransmännen gör det alltid lite bättre än USA. Trovärdigt utan att bli tråkigt. Bra tempo och fängslande. Se.
