War is nerve-wracking enough when the unseen enemy surrounds you—but what about an enemy that hasn't existed for a quarter-century? Such is the paradoxical predicament endured by a platoon of British troops in Kilo Two Bravo, a relentlessly tense Afghan war drama by first-time feature director Paul Katis. The platoon is patrolling for Taliban insurgents in a remote, beautifully stark region near Afghanistan's Kajaki Dam in 2006 when one soldier steps on a mine, losing his leg in the process. As the rest of the unit comes to his aid, more mines explode, causing further injuries. To make matters worse, the minefield they have stumbled into was laid not by Taliban or Coalition forces; it's a derelict leftover by the Soviets from their 1980s invasion, meaning there are no surviving maps of the mine locations. With rations and morphine running low, the injured platoon is forced to take ever-greater, heart-pounding risks to survive. Using mostly unknown actors, Katis focuses not on particular individuals, but on the heroic teamwork and painstaking procedures used to keep the grievously wounded men alive. Shot with unflinching realism and leavened with surprising moments of gallows humor, Kilo Two Bravo, based on true events, is one of the most harrowing antiwar films of the post-9/11 era and a devastating commentary on the forgotten legacy of the Afghan conflict.
