This is a kind of sci-fi tinged military drama set in Afghanistan. Jonas Ball, bearing an uncanny likeness to Burn Notice's Jeffery Donovan in voice and mannerisms, is the CIA operative sent in to lead a team of special forces troops into the desert and find a mysterious target. The CIA fears that Al Qaeda has got their hands on a nuclear bomb or other radiation source, but Ball's CIA goon is under orders to pretend they're going in to get a statement of support for the war from a holy man. And that's as far as I can go without giving away the plot (believe it or not all of the above is laid out via exposition in about the first 5 mins). After that the film is light on plot but heavy on atmosphere. Blair Witch co-helmer Daniel Meyrick tries to make the best of a (very) low budget, and succeeds to some degree. There are well executed eerie scenes in a village that highlight the cutlure clash gulfs to such an extreme that the villagers in Burkas almost feel alien. There are also a few brief combat scenes later on which feel quite realistic. Amusingly one of the plot elements has managed to make it easier for Meyrick to get by on a low budget and few special effects by explaining away generalised mysterious events as part of the overall plot. A few bizarre encounters are dealt with well, although at times this feels like it's borrowing very heavily from Blair Witch (wooden structures in odd places, map reading issues, a group fractuing under the stress of being in a gradually wierder situation etc). The mystery itself is interesting, and is handled well, but while the cast feel nicely varied and reasonably believable as well disciplined military figures, you do wonder why some of them don't freak out just a little more.
Overall, this is not high excitement or high drama - or even high action. It is however a well handled, desert set low budget drama with some nicely handled strangeness, sparing but effective CGI, and good acting.
