Goofs

At the beginning of the movie when the men are traveling over the Berkely Bridge on their way to the wedding at Christ's of Saint Luke in Norfolk, Virginia, they are actually heading towards Portsmouth/Chesapeake, Virginia. Christ's of Saint Luke would be behind them, so they are headed in the wrong direction. See more »

Quotes

Hawkins: [driving on a bridge on the way to a wedding] I'm sorry guys but I cannot be apart of this funeral procession. I'm out of here
[he jumps off the moving jeep, over the bridge and dives down in to the water about twenty feet below while shouting]
Hawkins: SEE YOU LATERRRR!
Chief Billy Graham: Whoa, did you see that, that guy's a crazy man!
[they throw him his coat]
Hawkins: THANK YOU!
Curran: [to Graham] I hope he dies of pneumonia.

A classic
2 July 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While one can poke fun at Navy SEALS all day, the fact remains that it is a classic in modern military movies. Of course it's cheesy, and of course it's unrealistic at times, but I've known several SEALS who resemble these characters. The first half of the movie is great, especially the first 10 minutes. The second half drags a bit. Charlie Sheen and Michael Biehn are at their best. Bill Paxton, though under-used, shines as "God". The soundtrack is killer. I saw this movie several times at the theater, and the best time was when I saw it at Fort Bragg where the crowd erupted during the airdrop scene! I love this movie, despite it's obvious flaws.
