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.
