While I don't actually remember if this team is said to be an elite military force of the best of the best, they very quickly demonstrate that they are not even remotely close to being competent or reliable soldiers. One of them even casually pulls his gun on their civilian attache, Mills, in a joking manner while they're in a future-helicopter, because as anyone in any branch of the military will tell you, waving your fully loaded and operational gun around in a tight, pressurized cabin at your friends and allies is what all hardcore badass marines and soldiers do.
going on, these people are engaged in an apparent training exercise in some area against robot drone soldiers, of which Mills can connect with them via some manner of implant in her body that is shown through her eye implants and such. For this reason and apparently no other, most of the squad hates and mistrusts her, with the captain being the most needlessly belligerent against her.
When stuff inevitably goes wrong and the robots start launching ambush attacks on the soldiers, they almost immediately start breaking down, shrieking and crying at each other and making lots of loud noises so the robots can better track them and kill them. As well, they start more openly threatening Mills, thinking it's somehow her fault because apparently soldiers in the future operate on a childish mindset of "new thing happen, it fault of new person".
as they try to escape the killer drone robots, they inevitably get picked off one by one, while continuously making noise, breaking up into groups, losing their cool, screaming at each other, and pulling guns on Mills because she's the computer techie and technology is scary.
when they reach the apparent command hub where all the robots are based in, they meet the first robot, and we get an expo dump with it and Mills revealing that the robots are S.A.R. program, which I forgot what the initials stand for, but it basically means they learn from mistakes, study their opponents' tactics and strategy, and adapt accordingly. Mills seems to think it's some kind of programming error or maybe a hacking that's leading to the robots killing the marines, but the Head Robot says the only problem is human error; namely that the humans suck at fighting them.
While them killing humans is a bad thing I am utterly against and would shut down the robots, they technically aren't wrong; this particular group of soldiers is comically inept and dangerously unstable, whilst the S.A.R. drones not only have the benefits of robot soldiers over humans, but they have the added advantage of learning and adapting on top of that, and they aren't constantly threatening to shoot each other for no reason or casually waving their weapons around unless they fully intend to kill a target.
While robot soldiers will essentially never match up to human soldiers, and could never replace them for delicate missions like special operations or ones with the risk of civilian crossfire and casualties, these S.A.R. robots prove themselves in the film to be far superior to the bumbling protagonist team and could even stand to be deployed to a general war zone as-is, whereas the bumbling protagonist team I would not trust to do recon without somehow screwing up and shooting each other.

Set in a near future, technology-reliant society is creating killing machines. Against this backdrop an elite Marine unit is helicoptered in to a remote, off-the-grid island training facility, to test the capabilities of the latest prototypes. They set up positions and make short work of the AI targets in the killing field. However, overnight their sentry goes missing, and when they find the corpse the next day they find themselves in the killing field and the tables have turned. The Marines fight to survive on an island that is overrun by an enemy intelligence far beyond their predecessors, which learns from their every move.
