This compact and tense two-hander might be a war movie but it more properly belongs in the psychological thriller category alongside Phone Booth and Buried.
A pair of US soldiers (Aaron Taylor-Johnson and John Cena) on a lengthy stakeout in Iraq are targeted by an enemy sniper, and a crumbling stone wall becomes the only refuge from the would-be assassin’s bullets. Directed by Doug Liman, this economical exercise in suspense quickly turns into a war of words between the marksman and his prey, which Taylor-Johnson fights with dusty desperation, steely resolve, and a barrage of expletives.
