Guy Ritchie knew exactly what he was doing when he chose Jake Gyllenhaal for his upcoming picture. Guy Ritchie’s The Covenant. Gyllenhaal is known for turning up the heat in a number of high-octane movies like The Gentleman and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Gyllenhaal was the ideal choice to bring Ritchie’s newest explosive and emotional feature to life because of his critically lauded expertise in dramas and action movies. Not to mention his outstanding performance in Sam Mendes’ Gulf War-based film, Jarhead. In a brand-new featurette, Gyllenhaal, Ritchie, and co-star Dar Salim discuss what makes The Covenant unique among war films and how it successfully depicts the bond between two men who depend on one another to survive.
The interpreter Ahmed (Salim). Whose son was killed by the Taliban, merely needs the money when he signs up to accompany Sergeant John Kinley (Gyllenhaal) on a mission that travels through hostile area, according to the opening of the clip. Gyllenhaal breaks down the plot’s premise by saying that it’s a mirror of how we respond “when someone saves our lives.” The duo’s perilous journey across the desert. Which we saw in the movie’s teaser, will serve as the main setting for the first act of the title.
The “beauty” of the movie, according to Salim, who fans may recognise from roles in Exodus. God and Kings and Game of Thrones, is that these two men are thrust into dire situations where their existence depends on one another. Gyllenhaal assures viewers that “in the end, you will be affected” despite the fact that explosions and gun fights push the main protagonists to the brink of collapse.

Ahmed is able to make sure that Kinley returns to the United States despite the pair’s difficult and lengthy journey through the desert to safety.
