Armadillo, 2010 war documentary by filmmaker Janus Metz Pedersen who follows a group of Danish soldiers as they travelled to the Armadillo military base located in Helmand province of Afghanistan in February 2009.

 

The film captures a high level of verisimilitude, in that it captures the day to day lives of the soldiers as they work at accomplishing their mission to drive the Taliban out of the area without restriction. "Armadillo" is comparable to Restrepo but it focuses on the R and R time spent on duties a little more.

 

Armadillo generally received very good critical ratings, however, there were a number of critics. One of which was Guy Dixon of The Globe and Mail who criticised the films overzealous editing style and colour correction over footage showing dead bodies.
