If you have seen The Hurt Locker and handled the unbridled gore, then you should be able to cope with the blood and guts in British film, Kajaki: Kilo Two Brave.
However, it is the excrutiating suspense and randomness that may just get to you.
This incredibly realistic depiction of a true story is the latest modern war movie to hit the DVD outlets.
It's an almost too close-up portrait of a harrowing event in the midst of the Afghanistan conflict.
The movie is based on the true story of Mark Wright, who courageously entered an unmarked minefield in an attempt to save the lives of other injured soldiers in Kajaki, Afghanistan, in 2006.
One by one, brave soldiers lose limbs - and lives.
If ever there was a movie deserving of the R18+ rating, it's this one, so be aware the content is brutal and confronting.
n Kajaki: Kilo Two Bravo, $24.95 (DVD), $29.95 (Blu-Ray), available at DVD stores.
