Senior Isaac McWilliams would 10/10 recommend this movie to anybody. “It was one of the best war movies I have ever seen. It was action filled. I especially liked when the soldiers would ride in on the horses, I thought it was pretty cool. The special effects and the accuracy of the movie really surprised me.” McWilliams stated.
The movie itself kept you on the edge of your chair. Every time our country was on the screen, it left you wondering if the soldiers were going to make it out alive, let alone the horses. The soldiers would ride in on the horses while the Taliban had tanks and huge missiles they were launching. However, the United States ended up winning the attack with everyone surviving, and only one or two horses being killed.
