    Highly fictionalized made for TV movie based on the mission Bravo Two Zero, this film was based on Andy McNab's bestseller that recounts his experience during the failed SAS mission to destroy Saddam Hussein's Scud missiles during the Gulf War. McNab was hailed as a hero and his book was praised as an authentic account of the events. However, he made up some key aspects of the mission that have been hailed as pure courage. With that being said, this is a flawed movie that covers up the facts. I'm a sucker for military authenticity as I was born in a military family, and I appreciate and respect what servicemen do, but this account covers up the facts and that just doesn't give the true story justice. In terms of a movie, this is a decent to mediocre affair that looks more like a B movie version of a Rambo film than anything. I had mixed feelings about this film, and though Sean Bean is a good actor, I felt he really didn't offer anything to the screen to make this one a standout war film. If the real facts would have expressed on camera, then Bravo Two Zero would have been a successfully well executed war drama about a failed heroic mission of the British SAS. I read the real facts, and it is a more compelling and exhilarating story than what Andy McNab has written in his book. Understandably McNab wanted to glorify the mission and bend the truth to the point it was laughable. He clearly just wanted to sell books, and in the long run his memoir was critically acclaimed as accurate and the best work on the SAS. Well, it isn't. This film should be seen as a mindless action made for TV war film that is entertaining, but is heavily flawed due to the ignorance of the real facts. If you have nothing better to watch, give it a shot, but be warned, everything you see here is more fiction than fact, and if you want to know more about the mission read Michael Asher's book The Real Bravo Two Zero and Peter Ratcliffe's memoir Eye of the Storrm, which has been hailed as THE book on the SAS. In the end, this made for TV version of McNab's work may just spark an interest in the patrol and make you want to find out what actually happened, which is not that bad. If only the real facts would have been presented, then the film would have really been something quite worthwhile to see.

    As a fan of both Sean Bean and Andy McNab, I can say that this is one of the best adaptations of a true war story I've ever seen. It captures the essence of the men without dramatizing the plot. From what I've read, as far as McNab's book and declassified documents, everything is as it was.

    <b>Bravo Two Zero is one of my all time Sean Bean Favorite Movies. First of all because it is based up on really facts, second I read the Book before I saw the Movie. I can say they really didn`t change much. I think you can learn from this Movie or if you prefer to read the Book. Absolutely Great. So far from Liloh.
