Directed by Pierre Morel (Taken) and written by Brandon and Kurtis Birtell, The Ambush is the story of Emirati soldiers caught in an ambush which has destroyed their armored vehicle patrol, but its all a trap to take out more soldiers and an Apache chopper that is coming to rescue them.
Morel is great at getting across the action in this, as the troops have to avoid rocket fire, a sniper and landmines if they want to survive. It looks like someone will have to make a sacrifice if anyone wants to survive and if more losses won’t be added to the day.
If you’re looking for a modern war film, this will definitely fit the bill. It’s not anything groundbreaking, but the action is pretty thrilling and I was biting my nails watching the helicopter avoid all that rocket fire!
The Ambush is available on blu ray and DVD from Well Go USA.
