War films

War films are not always showing the war per se - often the main theme is the influence of the conflict on lives of people involved, but also their families and friends. War is seldom a local thing - the trauma, the pain, the death they put their mark on people from around the world.

Kajaki: The True Story (2014, United Kingdom)

Original / alternative title: Kilo Two Bravo

Running time: 105 minutes

Categories: desert films

Language: English


In 2006 patrol of British infantry soldiers walk into an unknown minefield in the middle of Afghan desert. Their commander tries to rescue them, but this only escalates the situation.



September 2016, the British outpost located near the Kajaki Dam in Afghanistan Helmand Province. New set of 3rd Battalion, Parachute Regiment soldiers are about to take over the post set on the top of the ridge. The area seems to be quite, but during the night Brits spot some activity on the nearby road - it seems that the Taliban warriors are putting a roadblock there. In the morning patrol of three soldiers under command of Corporal Mark Wright is sent to check the spot, but while they are crossing a dried out river bed at the foot of the ridge a landmine explodes and severely injures Corporal Stuart Hale. Rest of the platoon rushes down the hill to help their comrades trapped in the middle of unknown minefield, but they have no equipment to detect the mines. While they try to reach the patrol it becomes obvious that the mines must have been dragged here by the water before river dried out and they might be the relic of 1980 Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. In that case the whole river bed is not safe, so the only option is the airborne evacuation, but the only available helicopter is Chinook that is not equipped with winch that was the only solution. Soon another landmine explodes...

British war film based on the incident that took place in 2006 that lead to severe injuries to 7 soldiers and death of Corporal Mark Wright. It is very powerful film that shows how soulless is war and how one bad decision can lead to a great tragedy. As most of the films based on true events it is not a spectacular production full of action scenes, it is brutal look on the reality of war, where there are no superheroes nor happy endings, just a grim reality.
