Nov 23, 2018 · Danny reassembles his former team of skilled commandos to launch a rescue mission, and also to infiltrate the highly feared military unit, the British Special Air Service. The mission will not be easy, for Danny and his team must cut their way through Spike (Clive Owen) and a team of assassins known as the Feather Men.
The murders are carried out over a 17-year period, on the orders of a Dubai sheikh whose three sons were killed by British forces in Oman during a battle with Communist guerrillas. Fiennes claimed that he himself was targeted by the group, but was saved by a group of vigilantes calling themselves the "Feather Men".

The plot for the film is based on the novel The Feather Men by Ranulph Fiennes. Several elements from the book were altered to make the film seem more believable to a cinema audience. Fiennes claims that a secret society called the "Feather Men", made up of retired and disabled SAS members, was operating in the shadows.
The story was goo but the movie was far better. If it was a choice between getting the DVD or purchasing the book you can guess my suggestion. The only caveat is that the film has a different ending from the book so you have been warned.
