    I just finished the Book and have been watching the trailers about the upcoming movie.

    The book seemed to be a solid straight-forward account but for me the caution flags are up for the movie since it is directed by Michael Bay.

    Based on the trailers they are going beyond the book to make the Team Leader into the bad guy and an outright coward for the decision not to immediately jump out the gate on the first call about the attack on the special Mission complex.

    The argument to go immediately was only obvious with hindsight. Given the subsequent attack on the annex itself, both friendly fire and ambush were perfectly rational and real concerns. If the enemy had planned a little better or the operators got held up at the mission complex, there was a very good chance of the bad situation becoming a total and absolute disaster.
