Unna Movie Trailer exercise

Correct Text

This is Colonel Powell. She's gonna walk you through

the capture of Ayesha Al-Hady aka Susan Danford.

We have intelligence of a meeting between Danford

and numbers 4 and 5 on our most wanted list.

We believe that they're connected to the recent suicide bombing in Kenya.

We have information that they will be in this house today.

This is an operation to capture, not kill.

Range: 22,000 feet.

You have your orders, lieutenant. Your job is to be their eye in the sky.

Yes, mam.

I have to know if Danford is inside and who is with her.

That's Danford.

Well, this changes things.

What's happening?

We're seeing a suicide vest and a whole bunch of explosives.

What's the plan, General?

We have the ability to strike a target with considerable accuracy.

I came here to witness a capture, not a targeted assassination.

Dozens of lives are a stake

if these men leave.

We need to put a Hellfire through that roof right now.

Weapon is armed. What's that?

Given the new circumstances, I think we should abort.

You have number 4 and 5 on the President's kill list

in your sight and you are putting the whole mission at risk

because of one collateral damage issue?

Minister?

We are locked into this kill chain.

I need legal clearance to strike.

I'm the pilot in command responsible for releasing weapon

and I will fire when this girl is out of the way.

There is a lot more at stake than you see in this image.

If they kill 80 people,

we win the propaganda war.

If we kill one child,

they do.

We've got two suicide bombers inside that house.

And no one wants to take responsibility for pulling the trigger.

– We lost visual. – Christ!

We made a decision.

– Ready. – Right now.

– Three. – Go!

– Two. – Wait!

One.

 

Exercise 3: Idioms

1. Check out the idioms of the week.

2. Try to remember them and use them when you need to say something like that.

Don't look a gift horse in the mouth:
對禮物不要挑剔

Don't put all your eggs in one basket: 
分散風險,勿孤注一擲

Do not put all your resources in one possibility.

 

Doozy: 
極品,非常搶眼 或 非常出色

Something outstanding.

 

Down to the wire:
最後一刻方見勝負

Something that ends at the last minute or last few seconds.
