Not bad for a TV Movie.
27 November 2003 | by (Schenectady, NY) – See all my reviews

This movie about a group of "Weekend Warriors", reservists, who are sent to Honduras to build a runway. Shortly after arriving an engineering group is sent to a small village to repair a bridge as a favor for the US Ambassador. Captain John Deason begins to question who he is really building the bridge for, the villagers?, or someone else? This movie was interesting, in that it showed something of where reservists come from and what they do when they are called up. The major actors in this movie are recognizable from more recent tv shows and movies. The acting was good and the locations looked authentic. The movie was interesting enough to watch for an hour and a half.
