Koch Entertainment has announced and detailed the Blu-ray release of writer/director Stéphane Rybojad's Special Forces, starring Diane Kruger (Inglorious Basterds and Academy Award nominee Djimon Hounsou (Gladiator, Blood Diamond). The pulse-pounding, action-packed military thriller streets on February 19th.
When war correspondent Elsa Casanova (Kruger) is taken hostage in Afghanistan by the Taliban warlord Ahmed Zaief (Raz Degan), the French government dispatches an elite Special Forces unit led by Kovax (Hounsou) and tasks them with bringing her home alive. But after liberating the captives, the commandos' radio is destroyed in a firefight, and the group quickly finds themselves in a desperate fight for survival as they try to outrun their pursuers through the treacherous mountains of the Hindu Kush. Released theatrically in 2012, Special Forces is both a frenetic and explosive military thriller and an inspirational tale of ripped-from-the-headlines heroism.
