"A film about bravery, courage, heroism and the ultimate sacrifice."

"FUBAR" is what best describes the story of Kilo Two Bravo a.k.a. Kajaki (the original British title), a war movie that depicts a real-life incident that happened in 2006, involving a small group of British soldiers deployed in Afghanistan that get trapped in an unmarked minefield in a dried-up riverbed left by the Soviets back in the 1980s. After one of the soldiers of the squad sent out to neutralize a Taliban roadblock detonates a landmine, a chain reaction of horror and heroism is set off, as the others engage in a desperate and increasingly dramatic rescue mission, fighting an unseen, unpredictable and deadly enemy.

Dealing with a part of war that is less seen in films, Kilo Two Bravo is one of the most intense anti-war movies out there. The action is really intense and sometimes hard to watch - it is extremely graphic concerning battle injuries and the desperation reaches critical levels at times. With extremely fine ensemble performances by the no-name cast, this little low-budget gem is a rare and incredibly well executed film about the physical and emotional traumas of war, that keeps its audience pinned to the edge of its seat.

Plot summary from IMDb: Kajaki Dam 2006. A company of young British soldiers encounter an unexpected, terrifying enemy. A dried-out river bed, and under every step the possibility of an anti-personnel mine. A mine that could cost you your leg - or your life.

Awards: Nominated for 1 BAFTA Film Award. Another 4 wins & 4 nominations.
