During the Iraq War, a Sergeant recently assigned to an army bomb squad is put at odds with his squad mates due to his maverick way of handling his work.
Jordan is such a safe location that the actors didn't want to have bodyguards, as was first intended. There was no Jordanian military acting as security for the film. Security, set dressing and onset, was provided by a private company.
Sergeant JT Sanborn:
Now push it in.
Sgt. Matt Thompson: I can't.
Sergeant JT Sanborn: What do you mean you can't? Pretend it's your dick, man.
Sgt. Matt Thompson: How about I pretend it's your dick?
Sergeant JT Sanborn: You'd never get it in if you did that.
In the scene with the suicide bomber, Sanborn helps James suit up into the protective gear. Sanborn attaches the protective gear to the helmet on both sides of the neck. When James turns to meet the suicide bomber, it is clearly seen that the right side portion of the protective gear near the neck is not attached to the helmet; but, right in the next scene, you can see it is.
There are no opening credits, not even a title.
