An intermittently compelling but ultimately disappointing drama that loses track of its own point of view in favor of more generic storytelling.

This well-acted debut feature from Michael Connors (a former Army captain) is too limited in ambition and scope to satisfy our expectations.

What begins as a drama devolves by the halfway point into an overly long chase film, which only grows more and more boring.

The plot ticks along steadily, if predictably; but we've often seen these soldiers before.

There's little insight here, but rather a generic cat-and-mouse scenario that progressively gets more far-fetched.
