1.0 out of 5 stars Misguided., 22 Jan. 2015
First thing, the poster is misleading. At no point in the film is there an SAS soldier wearing a uniform like that, there is not a helicopter dropping SAS soldiers in or explosions in sight of Big Ben. I expected this to be a tacky low budget film praising the SAS for being superheroes. Not quite, because in this film they are bloody awful and I'd wager serving regiment soldiers would get pissed off just watching it.

I wasn't expecting the film to be anything but bad, but I thought it would at least portray the SAS a little better. Oh and the script writers are at fault as much as the Director (the budget isn't the fault here, more money however might have bought a better production team.) Right when an explosion happens in the film a news reporter says "Large particles have just been showered over police vehicles." No reporter would use the word particles in that context, it's just stupid, I can only assume the writers lacked the vocabulary to think of the word debris, or rubble.

2.0 out of 5 stars Seems to have a use by date., 19 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For the first 8 months the laptop was quite good, now however it seems to consistently cause me issues. I am frequently doing system restores as various systems fail, that is if it lets me do even that. Things stop working for no apparent reason and without warning.

Whilst the laptop specs are still excellent for the price I paid I don't expect I'll be buying a laptop from Lenovo again.

Good quality mask but like others have said it is oversized,and that's coming from a fully grown adult with a somewhat large head. I'm not personally unhappy with it but if it's for a child or young have a small head,stay away.

1.0 out of 5 stars Simply terrible., 1 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This used to be an extremely detailed app tailor made for tablets. Now it seems nothing more than a simple copy paste of the actual magazine.

Which would be fine, but when using a 7 inch Kindle Fire HD one almost has to squint to read what lies on each page. There doesn't seem to be anyway to zoom in, I'm sure it's fine for people with large tablets but with the large amount of small types on the market now there are sure to be hundreds more disgruntled by this lazy, I mean 'simplified' application.

As well as it being tiny there is the issue that the app does not save your last read page. Sneaky tactic to make us look through the horrendous amounts of advertisements again? Perhaps, I however feel it far more likely that whoever took over the digital version design did it with minimal enthusiasm and even less interest in basic ergonomics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping,intense and honest., 19 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whilst not much of this book has big battles and the like, the raw emotion transferred through Blakeleys writing really makes you feel just what he has gone through. But if anything,it almost made me feel guilty for not being a soldier.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating,realistic and gritty., 12 Feb. 2014
Well written throughout, decent plot twists and thoroughly captivating. My only gripe was its predictability in the last chapters events. Still bloody good though.

Strong plot,strong character development. Only let down with spelling errors here and there and a little confusion in how either group is defined at the beginning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great series, great boxset,pretty nice glass., 29 Dec. 2013

Nothing I could say would describe how brilliantly well made Mad Men is, but I would recommend it to anyone. The Madison Avenue whiskey glass is very nice too, though I'm hesitant to put it through the dishwasher.

It truly is a shame Major Napier lost an arm at Ciudad Rodrigo because if he had been present through the following campaigns this book would be even better. An excellent read.
