Goofs

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 »

A HBO action movie about a POW/psychological war game gone wrong
25 September 2000 | by See all my reviews

This film was not that bad. It was a action movie but it was about a US GOVERMENT P.O.W./PSYOPS prisoner of war camp where the commandant goes crazy and the games turn real. This was a interesting premise that unfortunately had a RAMBO finish. it was a good HBO/straight to video movie. The program is to train downed pilots on escape evasion tactics and how to survive in a mocck up in a simulated SOVIET/communist POW camp. Things get nasty when the vicious commander played by ANTHONY ZERBE takes forceful liberties with a woman pilot. Then there is a escape and several gun battles. This film was inventive on it's low budget and well filmed. However, it could have gone for a more FIRST BLOODISH approach to filmmaking.
