5.0 out of 5 stars critical view of SAS role in Gulf War
the interesting thing about the film of The One that Got away ' is the significant difference form the book or from Andy McNabb's acount in 'Bravo Two Zero'
The film makers almost seem to have hijacked Chris Ryan's story to emphasise discord among the troop and a cowboy attitude of some of the troopers and portrays a partially sympathetic view of the Iraqi's...

1.0 out of 5 stars The One that got away (Chris Ryan), 13 Jan 2013

This review is from: The One That Got Away [Region 2] [import] (DVD)
The one that got away(supposedly Chris Ryan,s version of Bravo Two Zero) is extremely bad, worse than a B Grade movie.Chris Ryan himself on You Tube stated "don,t waste your money the movie is not remotely the story he told to film makers.Due to conractual arrangements he was unable to change the final cuts.I am a military historian and to make an 8 man team of the best of the best SAS look like a mob of boy scouts with their officers pulling every stuff up in military history and the actors very bad portrayal of these heroes is pathetic. If you want a much slicker version of the events which is very watchable and closer to the truth watch Andy McNab,s version "Bravo Two Zero"starring Sean Bean. IT,S GOOD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting early work from Mr Greengrass, 17 April 2009

This review is from: The One That Got Away [Region 2] [import] (DVD)
Quite effective for a low budget TV piece. Certainly very different from the other British TV movie about this incident, and portrays Ryan as very much an outsider compared with the rest of the group. Not sure about McNabs portrayal, which comes across as rather negative. Some of the action sequences do show snippets of the style that would be more obvious in Mr Greengrass's later films

1.0 out of 5 stars badly portrayed, 10 Jun 2003
By 
will (United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This 'film' is not as Chris Ryan intended and has since appologised in the newly revised version of 'The one that got away'. The makers took what parts of the story they liked, and disregarded what they didn't. Anyone really wanting to know this story, should read the book as it is a more reliable account of Chris Ryan's escape in Iraq.

This review is from: The One That Got Away [Region 2] [import] (DVD)
I didn't realised (because it wasn't specified when I purchased it) that it wasn't in English. And I didn't receive an invoice slip, so had no details to return it.
How do I get an English language version?

Very poor soundtrack, found the background music over riding the speech especially at the beginning. Also during combat scenes. Disappointed.
