Goofs

The tiny cylinder implanted in the girl's hand is too small to be a GPS tracking device. It resembles a RFID chip. The latest RFID technology can be read at about 50 feet maximum. A functional GPS device like that you would attach to a bicycle or pet collar is at least 3/4 inch x 4 inches. See more »

Quotes

Deklan: What now for the hollow-hearted soldier?/When the beast of battle digs in its claws and a soul sets sail in eternal pause./Survival's true cost is growing older./Where to for the man without a mission?/When the cries of combat cease to sound and the ones once brave all lie in the ground./The warrior's new war is attrition./What hope an entire war cherish?/To brave a new battle or to perish.
Deklan: Brother... /When you raise your shield,/So will I./Sister... /When you charge at the enemy,/So will I./...

For anybody who decided to only read all the bad reviews....
25 March 2018 | by MadRotaryOne_DDCgodSee all my reviews

I never review movies here. All I want to say about this movie is that I was suspicious of this movie from the start. I was almost certain I was going to be turning this off after 5 or 10 minutes. But an hour in and I'm still watching it. I actually paused it to look something up about the movie, and happen to catch some of the reviews.

So I read in a few of them that this movie is basically a revenge fantasy for gun nuts(That's an actual quote(paraphrased) from one of the reviews). Well this isn't a spoiler, and I'm only saying it becuase it's only spoken for a second and then forgotten, but the 2 older brothers are rangers. That's all I have to say. The rest of the movie is exactly what would happen if 2 rangers had their sister kidnapped, and they knew where she was.
