The character Ellen Abramowitz, a Lieutenant in the British Army, does not know how to pronounce her own rank. British pronunciation is, literally, "Leftenant", for complex historical reasons. This is the case in the British Army and the Royal Navy, and in the Royal Air Force rank of Flight Lieutenant.
Sgt Brandon Beckett:
One shot, two kills
OK for an action movie
This movie has good quality action, good sound effects, and not too bad
for an action movie.
Script is very weak. Poor dialogs and poor acting is pulling the
quality of the movie down. I guess actors are inexperienced but doing
their best with limited talents they got (or limited by the script –
Storyline is all right. It has a little twist but it becomes apparent
at the start of the movie. No deep emotions and drama element,
although, there was enough room for it in the story.
If you are looking for a thriller or a serious action movie, this is
NOT it. This is something little better than a tele drama, which will
keep you occupied till the end.
There are few "adult elements" in the movie: a short sex scene,
shooting, blood, and display of child soldiers.
