The true story of an SAS sabotage team as they attempt to escape from behind-the-lines Iraq in the Gulf War. The eight man team had to march cross country in sub-zero temperatures after they abort their mission, all the time being pursued by fanatical Iraqi pursuers. The film focuses on Chris Ryan (Paul McGann), as he was the only one of the team to escape.

Really TERRIBLE acting and production all round, embarrassingly bad. If you've followed the B2Z story and read all books then is pretty disappointing to say least!!! Would avoid and just accept you haven't watched it. The Sean Bean film only 2 stars also - v marginally better but equally terrible acting.

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.

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

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.
