I was supposed to have been on that helicopter

The documentary is about war reporter Alex Quade and her tribute to Rob Pirelli, an army engineer who died in a helicopter crash. The climax of the film we watch Rob's family see footage of the camp he designed. There is some actual combat footage. I had that uncomfortable feeling like when a friend asks you to watch their home movies. A great film if you are Alex Quade or part of the Pirelli family. I am neither.

Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity.

Combat Outpost Pirelli

Greetings again from the darkness. This is the third in a series of unparalleled looks at war from the front line courtesy of co-directors Christian Tureaud and David Salzberg. Their 2014 documentary The Hornet's Nest followed war correspondent Mike Boettcher and his son as they covered the most violent era of the Afghanistan War, and 2015's Citizen Soldier went inner circle with the Army National Guard's 45th Infantry Combat team in Afghanistan. This time the focus is on the work of war correspondent Alex Quade, a female reporter (yes, her gender is worth noting) who documented missions carried out by Special Forces teams.

Ms. Quade's interviews with Wendy R Anderson provide structure to the film and a chance for viewers to catch their breath in between combat videos. The interviews allow us to get a better feel for Ms. Quade's personality and motivation. She states that after being around soldiers in such stressful and life-threatening times, she believes "I have to tell their stories". These are stories we aren't usually privy to on network news reports. These situations go beyond dangerous and require courage most of us can't imagine.

There is some incredible early footage, much shot with night vision, which chronicles a large scale air assault ending in tragedy. The helicopters are being fired upon from ground-based weapons, and one is shot down. We then see how fast the rescue and recovery mission is implemented and how there is no hesitation in going in.

Ms. Quade makes this the personal story for one soldier – Rob Pirelli. She interviews his fellow soldiers, and even visits with Rob's parents at their home. The film begins in 2007 and goes into 2008 where she tracks the progress of Combat Outpost Pirelli – a home for a Special Forces team.

This is outstanding and eye-opening journalism, and forces viewers to confront the atrocities and always present danger of war. There are times during the interviews where Alex Quade comes off a bit arrogant, but we are reminded of a quote that at times has been attributed to Muhammad Ali, Bear Bryant, and Dizzy Dean … "It ain't bragging if …" Ms. Quade deserves much respect for her tenacity and bravery for doing what's necessary to tell these stories.

I have seen much better stuff on Youtube...

Truth is, I've seen better stuff on youtube, with better camera work - less headache when watching, including much better action and stories. This is just a tribute and should've been there and not made as a movie. What is really sad are the FAKE 9/10 and 10/10 reviews here on IMDB. I read all of them and they all are written by the same person as the style of writing is the same.That person also reviews 3-6 of the same movies on all of the accounts. That was a dead giveaway. Just sad creators of this youtube-style clips had to resort to this instead of actually making a great documentary that other people praised and not themselves.

Anyways, there were some good moments,but as I said, it's hard to review the stuff you can find openly on the video site in much better form.At times it almost feels like the journalist made this as a tribute to herself for going through all that...

4.6/10 is the most I can do for this documentary.
