Goofs

In the scene where Hawkins chases down a rollback tow truck that has his car, it shows him climbing aboard while it's moving down the road and operating the bed to get his car off of it. This simply isn't possible-the trucks are equipped with a power-take-off that required the transmission be in neutral and it's operated by levers that control hydraulics and not controlled by an electrical switch box. What is more, Hawkins would have had to winch out the cable slightly because you must have a counter-chain at the other end of the car to hold it in place on the bed of the truck or it'd likely fall off.

Mindless but Entertaining Action Flick
21 April 2003 | by (Philadelphia, PA) – See all my reviews

This is a rah-rah, gung-ho actioner and as long as that's what you're looking for, you'll have a good time watching this fast-paced story of the white hats versus the black hats.

Sheen, Biehn, Whalley, Kadi, and Paxton do workmanlike jobs with stereotypical roles. The plot is all formula but treated in a slightly unusual way and the action sequences are excellent. U.S. Navy SEALS (The good guys) stumble on a cache of weapons in the hands of mideastern terrorists (the bad guys.) The first attempt to get the goods fails, and in the process of tracking down the cache, everybody's best buddy dies (see if you can guess who THAT would be!) There are more tragic deaths before the finale, which, of course, includes hand-to-hand combat between boss baddie and our hero.

This is very definitely a promo for the U.S. Navy, with terrific shots of U.S. weapons, heroic depictions of our boys in action, and simple, demonized baddies. But if that kind of thing sets you off, it should be pretty obvious that this is not the film for you!
