In the middle of the desert, in an area filled with 33 million blast mines scattered everywhere, Marine sniper Sargent Mike Stevens (Armie Hammer) is on a mission to locate and neutralise the leader of a terrorist cell. After three months and six days in the desert, one single moment of hesitation was enough to blow the entire mission, and now Sargent Stevens has stranded in a hostile guerrilla territory all alone, and to make matters worse, with his left foot stepping on an active mine.
Against the harsh environment, without food and water, the Sargent must stay glued to the spot and use his Marine training, his resourcefulness and his perseverance for the next 52 hours until a convoy arrives in his area. Between the scolding heat of the day and the freezing cold of the night, if Sargent Stevens wants to survive, he must fight not only against the mighty forces of nature but also versus the greatest adversary of them all: himself.
Written and directed by Fabio Resinaro and Fabio Guaglione, and also starring Annabelle Wallis, Tom Cullen and Clint Dyer, this looks like a simple, but cracking thriller.
Mine is due out in the US on April 7th, but as of yet there’s no UK date.
