FROM THE DIRECTOR OF THE BOURNE IDENTITY and Edge Of Tomorrow
comes an unusual war film, The Wall, centring around two United States
Army Sergeants, Allen Isaac (Aaron Taylor-Johnson: Nocturnal Animals; Godzilla;
Avengers: Age of Ultron) and Shane Matthews (WWE's John Cena).
Isaac and Matthews are investigating a pipeline construction site in the Iraqi
desert where nothing has been heard from the workers or soldiers for a while,
and they have been waiting there for many hours.

soldiers and a lethal
Isaac uses a scope that had previously belonged to one of their dead comrades
to check the surrounding area before they leave the safety of the rocks and
it appears that, although he can see bodies, there is no imminent danger.
Staying in radio contact, Shane Matthews goes down to the pipeline but while
he is looking around he is shot by a lethally accurate but unseen sniper. Isaac
follows but is unable to get Matthews out of the line of fire before he dives
behind a crumbling wall that offers scant cover.
Bleeding heavily from a bullet wound to his knee and discovering that one shot
has taken out his radio antenna, Isaac has to think quickly on his feet if he
is to keep Matthews alive and work out a rescue plan.
The Iraqi sniper, identified by Isaac as Juba (Laith Nakli), begins his deadly
mind games to torment an already weakened and dehydrated Issac, who fears that
Matthews could already be dead.
In this psychological thriller, Isaac's sheer guts and determination help him
to keep his head against all odds in his mental and physical fight against his
enemy in a hot and barren desert. But will it be enough to outwit the shooter
and keep him alive long enough to warn the hoped-for rescue team of the danger
that is, if a rescue team arrives at all?
Unusually for a war film, The Wall only has three main characters, one
of whom is never seen, and is a compelling and mesmerising psychological trip
into the personas of two soldiers and a lethal enemy.
