REVIEW: JARHEAD 2: FIELD OF FIRE
OVERVIEW: A Marine unit stationed in the hostile province of Helmand Afghanistan wilderness faces a harrowing mission as they try to help a fugitive woman reach safety from the Taliban in Jarhead 2: Field of Fire.

SYNOPSIS: Jarhead 2: Field of Fire is inspired by Jarhead, the highly praised feature film that follows a naïve young recruit and his platoon mates from the intensity of boot camp to being deployed to a lonely outpost in a surreal desert setting. Jarhead 2: Field of Fire transports the action to the brutal battlefields and dusty villages of Afghanistan, where a band of Marines risk their lives to save a woman fleeing certain death at the hands of her Taliban pursuers.
Battle-scarred and disillusioned by the war, Corporal Chris Merriman (Josh Kelly, Transformers franchise, “Army Wives”) is put in charge of a unit whose next mission is to resupply a remote outpost on the edge of
Taliban-controlled territory. While driving through the hostile Helmand province, a Navy SEAL (Cole Hauser, Olympus Has Fallen) flags down their convoy and enlists the unit on an operation of international importance: they must help an Afghan woman famous for her defiance of the Taliban escape the country. Without tanks or air support, Merriman and his team will need all the courage and firepower they can muster to fight their way across the war-torn country and shepherd the woman to safety. Jarhead 2: Field of Fire is a thrilling action-adventure that celebrates the courage and patriotism of the men and women in the U.S. Marines.
