The scene in which Gen. Quoc oversees the torture of Col. Braddock runs just over eight uninterrupted minutes, thus making it one of the movies' longest bondage-and-torture scenes. See more »
In the scene at the embassy gate during the beginning of the movie, the Marine Corps Captain can be seen wearing subdued metal infantry branch insignia on his left collar (as he is wearing it). However, this branch insignia is used only by Army officers - not Marine Corps officers. A Marine Corps officer, if wearing rank insignia, would wear full color metallic metal insignia on either collar point, as the subdued blackened rank insignia was not introduced to the Marine Corps until the Marine Corps Combat Utility Uniform, in distinctive MARPAT pattern, was introduced in 2002.

You will do what I want... anyways.

This movie was an explosive mix of drama and action. Chuck is at his finest here, as he is in almost all his flicks, and he chews up some more anti-American slime in this seasoned classic. I just wish we could all be as heroic as Chuck is. Bravo!
