Well - could have been a good movie.
27 January 2007 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

There is one big, big lesson EVERY warrior needs to learn before doing battle - never, as in NEVER - volunteer information. John Howard's big mouth got them all killed. It freaked me out that he would volunteer anything to the enemy - the truth will NOT set you free. Up until his faux paux - it had the making of a good movie. Showing both sides of the coin was good & incisive. But - the ultimate deterioration of this movie came when Howard admits everything - as if a "confession" will help matters. If it weren't for that stupidity - it would have been a good movie. At best - I can only stomach parts of this movie - and stop at the dumb part. WHat else can I say - he cooked his own goose & his team mates with him. The guy i dumber than dirt - if that's at all possible. Care to talk - I'm at ml2348@att.com
