Trivia

The UNSSU compound raided in the movie was at an abandoned building outside of Lincoln, Nebraska. It stood on the grounds of a Nebraska state surplus site and remained in its "UNSSU" scheme (including large red lettering, white paint and burn marks) for many years until its demolition in August 2007.

Quotes

Peter Bradford: [in voiceover, as he looks at the Lincoln Memorial] You can't look at those eyes and not think of what being an American has meant. Now there's an end to it. Soon, there will be no America. We'll be history, quickly lost and distorted, like Mr. Lincoln himself... I suppose there will have to be new revolutions, with new generations who will have to discover the values which our forefathers handed down to us.

It was better the second time around!
19 May 1999 | by (Kansas City, Missouri) – See all my reviews

Certainly, after twelve long years, one tends to forget quite a bit of the content of a long movie. I'm no exception. It was hard to believe just how much I'd actually forgotten.

It remains one of the best pictures I've ever seen, from beginning to end. Theoretically, the events that occur are imaginable, the powerful acting awakens a feeling of patriotism and kinship with fellow Americans.

Although some feel the ending offers little closure, they were captivated by the plot as the rest of us were, feeling like one of the people of Milford with little else to lose but our self respect.

What can I say. . . everyone should see this movie at least once in their lives.
