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.
Colonel John Cambridge:
You know, this doesn't have to be a bad time in your life. Going to war is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It could be fun.
The bombs pictured would not have to be "disarmed" as portrayed. The military munitions were fused with primer cord. Simply cutting the primer cord would have isolated the bomb from the electrical cap ignition circuit, thereby making it inert. Primer cord explodes but with the force of a M-40 firecracker, not high explosive force. Primacord is, in fact, a high explosive that explodes at a velocity much greater than a firecracker, approx 23,000 fps.
There are no opening credits, not even a title.
