A completely missed opportunity ... a great story, access to Andy McNab and Chris Ryan for interviews etc. - but screwed up by the worst video and editing ever.

Editing has been done by someone who thinks that you need to switch the picture 5 times per second, which is very frustrating to watch. Even worse, there is over-the-top simulated camera shake done in all of the reconstruction scenes (even the text that they overlay on the video is artificially shaken & degraded). I found much of the video essentially unwatchable, and after a while of trying to put up with this nonsense I ended up just listening without watching.

In summary - a wonderful opportunity lost due to clueless editing.

Brilliant from start to finish both Andy and Chris speak about there experience in Iraqi, and what happened to them behind enemy lines. Sometimes the torture that Andy went through is mind blowing. And Chris the "200 mile walk "that nearly killed him". Its a must buy DVD. 10/10.

quite an interesting documentary of the failed mission.lack of proper planning and arab customs.
it may have suceeded if they had an arab interpreter with them.also this is a job for single men
not married ones.the armed forces shouldnt let the soldiers marry if they are in combat zones.
maybe they should have learnt from the the spartans.
