Trivia

In an interview, Michael Biehn stated that working on this film was "probably the worst experience of my life".
The actors spent two weeks in an intensive SEAL-style "boot camp." In the end, it was actors versus SEALs in a final "war game" showdown. The SEALs are reported to have graciously said that the actors made a good showing for themselves.
'Chief Dave' one of several real-life SEALs who would later play themselves in the film 'Act of Valor' cites this film as his first introduction to the world of SEALs and inspired him to join them.
Originally, the men were going to play touch-football. But Bill Paxton felt the scene was too similar to the volleyball scene in Top Gun (1986). So he suggested that they play golf instead. Most of the golf sequence was directed by Paxton with a second unit crew.
When discovered by a terrorist who tries to speak to him, Hawkins shoots him without answering, then says, "Boring conversation. Leader, we're gonna have company!" imitating a similar line by Han Solo in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977).
Michael Biehn, Rick Rossovich and Bill Paxton all had roles in The Terminator (1984).
Several events in this movie are inspired by Chuck Pfarrer's real SEAL career.
During the segment at the golf course, Rexer (Rick Rossovich) is seen wearing a Martini Ranch t-shirt. Bill Paxton, who plays Dane, was a member of the '80s rock band Martini Ranch.
Denis Haysbert who plays the role of 'Chief' would later go on to play the leader of, the Delta Force, in the TV series 'The Unit'.
Despite those named in the credits, the film went through another draft by Kevin Jarre. In one draft, Hawkins (Charlie Sheen) sacrifices himself to rescue Curran (Michael Biehn), who ends up with the love interest. In another version, Curran is killed off rescuing some kids, and Hawkins and Claire Varrens (Joanne Whalley) are left to mourn his passing. Also in one of those drafts, Curran is an accomplished boxer who squares off in a fight with Hawkins, who's into karate. The golf sequence in the film was a concession when the film's leads objected to a Top Gun (1986)-style scene with knife-throwing contests and bikini bimbos.
