In 2007 George Bush announced victory in Iraq. In reality a new war was beginning.

Sergeant Allen Isaac (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), spotter for Staff Sergeant Shane Matthews (John Cena) have spent the day looking at eight dead bodies, oil workers ambushed in the desert. Was it Iraqi militia or Juba, the legendary, ghost-like, Islamic superman sniper. Of course you don't see the wonder kid but he tunes into Isaac's radio for a friendly chat after he's dealt with Shane Matthews who moved into the open and it's one man down, Sgt. Allen Isaac a bullet in the leg and a crumbling wall the only refuge from super sniper. It's a one man show, with the super sniper waiting to finish the job.

Two men, one location, little movement and a wall has its moments but doesn't quite hit the bull's eye.
