After a failed assassination attempt, a soldier finds himself stranded in the desert. Exposed to the elements, he must survive the dangers of the desert and battle the psychological and physical tolls of the treacherous conditions.
In the middle of the desert, an area filled with 33 million blast mines scattered everywhere, marine sniper Sergeant Mike Stevens is on a mission to locate and neutralize the leader of a terrorist cell. After three months and six days in the desert, one single moment of hesitation is enough to blow the entire mission, and now Sergeant Stevens is stranded in a hostile guerrilla territory all alone, and to make matters worse, with his left foot on an active mine. Against the harsh environment, without water, the sergeant must stay glued to the spot and use his Marine training, his resourcefulness and his perseverance for the next 52 hours until a convoy arrives in his area. Between the scalding heat of the day and the freezing cold of the night, if Sergeant Stevens wants to survive, he must fight not only the mighty forces of nature but also the greatest adversary of them all: himself.

The objective lens does not have a "Sunshade", at best at 7;29 minutes the "Sunshade" is only about a 1/4th inch. The flip up cover does not provide any form of "sunshade" either. The learned modification is to use a piece of rubber hose from a vehicle radiator hose to create a "Sunshade". The shadows of the targets indicate that Mike and Tommy are looking towards the Sun.

So what's the plan? Over.
There's a convoy pinned down by fire from a group of guerillas just over the border. If everything goes well, they should be passing by your current location in about 52 hours, Sergeant. Over.

Sir, with all due respect, if everything goes well, I don't know if I can survive for 52 hours like this. Over.
Get ready to signal your position when the time comes. We'll try to contact you via radio to make sure you're... still there. ...

Additionally to all the goofs and error that other people pointed, there is a stupid scene repeated to death with his wife (already mentioned, but as a good thing) that I couldn't understand why it was included. Anyway, I decided to finish it with a bit of FF in the middle. By the time the movie was at middle, it was too late to start another.
I watched it because I really liked Kajaki (man, that is a tremendous movie) and the 6 points here. I think that all those who contributed to that 6 should't give me back my time too.
