Bravo Two Zero is a war film directed by Tom Clegg based on the novel of the same name by Andy McNab based on a British Special Air Service patrol behind enemy lines in Iraq during the Gulf War in early 1991. An eight-man team, lead by Sergeant Andy McNab (Sean Bean), had been dropped into hostile territory in order to stop not only the scud missiles used by Hussein but the communication between Baghdad and Northern Iraq. With a dangerous top-secret mission, the team had to deal with malfunctioning radios, harsh weather conditions, and spotty equipment. When a shepherd boy who then alerts the local militia spots the group, the men try to make their way to friendlier borders in order to get out of Iraq. Based on the true story of how eight men entered and only five survived, Brave Two Zero shows what happens when a mission turns sour and everything, even their environment, is considered hostile.
