Goofs

When the teams are calling in heavy bombers to engage targets, they state the target is "danger close". Danger close is within 600 meters, and the targets in this scene appear to be about 75-100 meters away. The bombs are dropped and the enemy is taken out. In fact, the bombs would also have killed the friendly forces, as the concussion of 250-lb. bombs (the smallest carried by heavy bombers) would kill within a 100-meter radius. See more »

A hero's Story
29 May 2018 | by CivillitSee all my reviews

Perhaps not the best war movie ever made and a bit predictable, but a truly well done and well acted insight into the first response to 9/11. Yes we win. Guess what? We won in real life too. It's about the journey not the well known destination. It's a ride, on horseback. Enjoy it for what it is. The one star reviews are simply ridiculous. Somewhere between a 6-8 is reasonable and rationale.
