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.
Jeremy Renner tripped and fell down some stairs while carrying an Iraqi boy on the film's set. Shooting was stopped for several days while Renner's ankle healed.
Staff Sergeant William James:
I'm gonna buy another DVD, okay? But... if it's shaky - look at me - or out of focus, or any way not 100%, I'm gonna chop off your goddamn head with a dull knife. How do you feel about... I'm just kidding, I'm just kidding.
Staff Sergeant William James: Here. You're a good kid.
Staff Sergeant William James: ...
When James pulls his side arm on the cab driver, the pistol he holds is not the military issue M-9, or civilian Beretta 92F, but a much older Beretta 92 model that has never been issued by the US Millitary. It looks like it's an old model 92 with a round trigger guard, frame-mounted safety, and a deep blued finish. The modern Berettas have combat trigger guards, slide-mounted safety/ hammer drops, and a mat finish. The Beretta 92 has been out of production since the 1970s.
There are no opening credits, not even a title.
