Quotes

Colonel Meredith: Casey and Lance could escape all the danger. Two fighting machines with muscles made out of steel and bones made out of granite. Soldiers never ask where or when to fight, no matter if they are in the desert or in the jungle, if it's day or night. Casey and Lance are laughing right in the face of the devil!

garbage, pure garbage.
23 July 2001 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

When i rate an action film, i rate it on two levels, two extremely difficult tests. It needs to pass one of these to succeed. The tests are:1. Was it entertaining as a normal movie, and 2. Was it entertaining as a b grade film.

This failed miserably on both levels.

Basically the story goes: Seasoned veterans break army command and wins on the battlefield, but they need to be punished, so are assigned with hot shot new recruits. This turns bad when they are trapped in the bush by enemy soldiers and all they can do is wait.

Apparently.......

So basically the entire movie is us watching them sit in the trenches saying 'we can't go out because they outnumber us so badly'. About an hour of that. Now THAT is entertainment. And then, the stupidest part..... This one soldier just decides to wipe out THE ENTIRE ENEMY ARMY by himself, with his trusty machine gun. AAAAAAAAARRRRRRGHH.

WHY DIDN'T HE JUST DO THAT AT THE START???? WHY SUBMIT US TO HOURS OF 'we can't leave the trench because we'll just get killed'. AAAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGHHH. You get the idea of how angry it has made me..don't make the same mistake of watching it.
