"Confront them with annihilation, and they will then survive; plunge them into a deadly situation, and they will then live. When people fall into danger, they are then able to strive for victory."
―Excerpt from Sun Tzu's Art of War in the opening scene.

72 Hours is a docu-drama war film about the Human-Covenant War. It was based upon director Anthony Khan's memoir of the same name during the Siege of Jacinto. The movie starred Devran Singh as Staff Sgt. Anthony Khan.

The film was shot in a variety of locations around Jacinto. The film crew was also granted access to bodies of Covenant species and captured Covenant vehicles, allowing the to create some of the most accurate computer-generated interpretations for the Covenant in the film.

At release, 72 Hours received critical acclaim by critics and was praised by audiences across human territories. The movie was a huge success in the box office by bringing in an enormous 4.5 Billion credits, becoming the highest grossing film to be produced after the Covenant War.
