Principal photography began in April in Georgia. It had high production costs associated with being the first-ever feature film using an extra- high frame rate of frames per second, further complicated by the 3D format, at 4K HD resolution. This act of courage earns Lynn the Silver Star and quickly ascends him and his unit, erroneously designated "Bravo Squad" by the media, to celebrity status. They return to the U. Now led by Sgt.

When The Hobbit first unleashed an increased frame rate on audiences, feedback was mixed and by the end of the trilogy, converts were thin on the ground. But the irony is that the novelty of the technique ultimately makes the film feel like even more of a construct. But one feels as if there was a smarter, sharper, sadder film to be made here. Alwyn, effortlessly masking his British accent, makes a strong impression as Lynn and hints at better things to come in future roles while small appearances from Vin Diesel and Steve Martin make for amiable distractions.
