Kilo Two Bravo

This harrowing look at the legacy of modern combat tells the true story of a squad of British paratroopers in Afghanistan who find themselves trapped in the midst of a long-forgotten minefield.

Hailed by the British press as one of the greatest war films in recent history, Kilo Two Bravo marks an extraordinary feature-length directorial debut for filmmaker Paul Katis. The fact that not one shot is fired in this excruciatingly tense film set on the battlefield is doubly remarkable. When the story begins, a fresh platoon of soldiers has just begun its tour of duty at a hilltop outpost in Afghanistan’s Helmand province. Life is fairly quiet there, and their deployment threatens to become rote until the area’s troubled history of conflict violently shakes them out of their routine. While on a patrol in a dusty riverbed, a soldier detonates a landmine, losing a leg and revealing to the others in his unit that they have inadvertently wandered into a deadly minefield left over from the Soviet-Afghan war. Told with an unrelenting sense of reality that will give you a sense of the procedural nature of war while keeping you on the edge of your seat and featuring an excellent ensemble cast led by Game of Throne’s Mark Stanley, Kilo Two Bravo is a unique thriller that will not be easily forgotten.
