American forces occupying Iraq are ambushed in a Baghdad neighborhood.
April 2004. The US 1st Cavalry Division has recently relieved the 1st Armored Division in its occupation of Sadr City, Baghdad. Everything seems peaceful until one day a platoon is ambushed in the city while on patrol. The platoon holes up in a house and reinforcements are sent to extract them. However, the relief column is itself ambushed, the main aim of the initial ambush. What follows is a life-and-death struggle against overwhelming odds. Based on actual events.
Here is why I dislike this production. Movies/TV series made during active wars have historically been received badly. Most of them deserved the reviews. The last, remotely good series was Fox' "Over There" (2005). At least the Fox series had perspective and several very sympathetic characters.
This series lacks even such characters and it is blatantly a propaganda piece, intended for younger audiences, who have not even been alive long enough to have a perspective. It translates "GWOT" into another product, like big macs or tooth paste - something to be borne and dealt with depending entirely on one's economic circumstances. Safe to say few of the rich kids of instagram waste their precious time on GWOT since it is so readily ignored. The poor kids though, as always, have a different row to hoe. What's the quintessential American one-liner? Answer: Fight the Vietnam war... then wait 30 years to do it again. I was looking forward to this new series, being an avid war story fan. But what a disappointment.
There have been a number of very good mini TV series form the US over the past few years that have taken bold steps to try and show the rest of the world that the film industry can shake off this old Hollywood stereotypical view of America but this is not one of them. The characters in this first episode might as well have walked around for the first half hour waving the star spangled banner and eating apple pie because not one of them came across as being real. And the story is so predictable that I found myself searching the filming location on IMDb because it had lost my interest.
Needless to say I wont be watching the next episode. a5c7b9f00b
