I was listening to radio 4 the other day and during one of the programs they were discussing the film kajaki . This film is about a Company of Para's sent to defend Kajaki Dam, in Afghanistan During 2006. On this deployment there was a large incident where a catalogue of errors lead to a very grave situation. This was a massive learning point for the British Army and many lessons were learn't from the events that took place that day. So much so a major inquest was held and lead to eventual change of S.O.Ps in the British Army.

Additionally the interview on radio 4 went on to explain how the actors met the soldiers they were playing and also how some of the film was actually recorded in the same place the events took place which is especially impressive.

I don't want to give to much more away as it will spoil it for those of you who choose to watch it but it is proper edge of the seat stuff that made me really appreciate how quickly COIN operations used to go.

It is currently on Netflix so dont miss out.

This film shows why medics have one of the highest rates of PTSD out of anyone in the Army, absoloutely amazing film.

The vocab and manerisms is (in my opinion) spot on

CGI is a bit meh, but its a BFI film, so thatS normal.

WATCH IT, WATCH IT, WATCH IT!

Watched last night safe to say it is a brilliant film definitely worth the watch. [Disclaimer: you may actually get PTSD from watching it.]

I literally just watched it on Netflix. I hadn't been that anxious since my first kid was born. Superb film. Watch it, unless you have a heart disorder...

Despite it being on Netflix I wouldn't suggest to use it for "Netflix 'n Chill";
The story is very easy to understand: the accents not so much.
