Gunnery Sergeant Burns reports for duty to an American Embassy in the Middle East. However due to the 'enlightened' views of the Ambassador, the marine security detachment he is in charge of is severely restricted in their functions and presence to avoid upsetting the host government. As a result, when terrorists attack the compound, they are able to kidnap hostages and escape with little opposition. Burns ignores the Ambassador's restrictions, and throws the rule books out the window, as he becomes a one man army in an attempt to rescue the hostages, and wipe out the terrorists. Written by

The suicide car bombing in this film was probably one out of hundreds of typical incidents in such a troubled spot. Then the abduction of the Colonel (Brian Keith) had a composite incident with the factual abduction of U.S. Marine Lt. Colonel Richard Higgin's during a U.N. peacekeeping mission in 1987. The movie character was rescued, while Higgins was tortured and executed. See more »
to me,this was just a standard run of the mill military actioner.i didn't think it brought anything new to the genre.it wasn't very exciting.even the final gun battle at the end of the movie was ho hum.this thing is also very predictable.having said all that,the movie was passable entertainment.Fred Dryer(the 80's TV show Hunter,and ex-football player)plays the main character in the movie,while Kathryn Erbe( Eames-Law and order:Criminal Intent)lookalike Kasey Walker plays one of the main terrorists.Dryer is OK in his Role,but I thought Walker was very impressive.anyway,you've probably seen it all before.for me Death Before Dishonour is a 5/10
