I really wanted to see this on cinema release but was unable to. I have just seen the R1 version and feel slightly disappointed with the film. Not saying that it's bad, just that as **entertainment** it was a tad uneasy viewing. I think that the gritty realism of it all was not what I was expecting. Very basic storyline and probably paid too much homage to Saving Private Ryan in style (Tom Sizemore reprising his character didn't help matters ). No gung-ho happy endings here, but 3 out of 5 from me.
