The Wall movie quotes help tell the story in the film about two soldiers in a standoff with a sniper, separated only by a crumbling brick wall in Iraq. The war thriller was directed by Doug Liman using a screenplay written by Dwain Worrell. The Wall opened theatrically in the United States on May 12, 2017.
In The Wall, American soldiers Sergeant Allen Isaac (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Staff Sergeant Shane Matthews (John Cena) are tasked with investigating the site of a pipeline construction in Iraq. The soldiers surveil the site for 22 hours in a safe spot and, after witnessing no movement whatsoever, deem the area safe. But when Matthews approaches the area, he soon learns that something is just not right.
Matthews is shot which leads Isaac to rush to his side and into the additional incoming gunfire. Isaac is wounded and his radio is damaged which leads Isaac to take cover behind a crumbling brick wall. As he radios for help, Isaac learns that the voice on the other end of the radio is not an American, rather the sniper (Laith Nakli) that has been shooting at them. This leads to an epic standoff between both sides with the only sure way out being death.
Something's Not Right
Sergeant Shane Matthews: You got eyes on that wall?
Sergeant Allen Isaac: I got eyes on your ass, fancy pants. Homeland, talk to me, talk to me. What do you see?
Sergeant Shane Matthews: Something's not right... I'm hit!
Sergeant Allen Isaac: Coming, man
As Matthews gets closer to the scene, Isaac stays back to cover his fancy pants ass. But when Matthews approaches in these The Wall movie quotes, he realizes something about the scene is just not right.
I've Got One Shot
Sergeant Shane Matthews: I've got one shot!
Sergeant Allen Isaac: No, no, no, no, the second you touch that rifle, you're dead.
Juba: This is true. When this is over, his family won't recognize him.
Thinking he can get one shot off before the sniper fires back, Matthews reaches for his rifle. But as both Isaac and Juba state in these The Wall movie quotes, taking that one shot is not a good idea.
You've Got an Accent
Sergeant Allen Isaac: How bad it is?
Sergeant Shane Matthews: Isaac, the bullet went through.
Sergeant Allen Isaac: I've got a man down!
Juba: What's your position? Over
Sergeant Allen Isaac: We've got a sniper, high-caliber weapon, requesting instruction.
Juba: Roger, I need your exact location.
Sergeant Allen Isaac: Say that again... You've got an accent, not American. Are you a sniper? What are you, man?
After Matthews is shot, Isaac attempts to call for help over his radio. He reaches someone on the other end, but soon realizes that it's not a friendly voice.
I'm Going Down There
Sergeant Shane Matthews: See that? Hit and run. Whoever he is, he's gone.
Sergeant Allen Isaac: Unless he's a pro
Sergeant Shane Matthews: We've got no movement, no sign of a shadow. I'm going down there and that's it.
Sergeant Allen Isaac: Roger that
Matthews and Isaac have been surveilling a pipeline construction site in Iraq for 22 hours in these The Wall movie quotes before they feel it's safe. With no activity whatsoever, they deem it abandoned and leave their post to explore further.
