When Casey gets put into the isolation box for the first time, she is wearing an orange POW poncho. A close up of her inside the box, however, clearly shows the outline of her unit patch on the shoulder of her flight suit. When she is taken out, she is still wearing the poncho. Only during the second time she is put into the box is she wearing her flight suit. See more »

PSYOPS...a go go.
13 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

OPPOSING FORCE is a film about a training school for aircrews that simulates escape and evasion training. The film is not bad for a lower budget B grade film. It wasn't toatally a B grade film but falls into the action fantasy category. LISA EICHHORN gives a great performance as a woman trapped in ANTHONY ZERBE's psyops little shop of horrors. OPFOR is a designation for ground variants of US MILITARY RED FLAG style exercises or AGGRESSOR UNITS, using enemy tactics for training purposes in WAR GAMES simulation. This film depicts such a exercise that goes bad and all hell breaks lose. The film was made during the RAMBO era, and has plenty of action purusant to the genre of that time but has a commentary on sexism as well. An action film for ladies and men alike, LISA EICHHORN succeeds at being a female action hero years before VI WARSHAWSKI.
