How To Acquire
3 January 2005 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I've seen this movie on TV a number of years ago & have been trying (unsuccessfully) to obtain a copy on VHS/DVD for repeat personal viewing.

Of course, the key point of interest is Camp X, situated outside of Toronto - a base for training.

The book on this story is the ONLY book I've ever read cover to cover (without being 'forced' to read).

It is a favorite of mine & would like to have a copy of the film on DVD or VHS.

Can anyone advise where I may get a copy (for purchase, of course).

Many thanks/ Skipper
