The flags in the courtroom are reversed; the flag of the United States should be positioned to its own right of any other flag or standard, even on an American military installation on foreign soil. Also U.S. Army flags or standards, even the National Flag, should have spearhead pole finials instead of eagle pole finials. Eagles are reserved for civilian flags and the President of the United States. See more »

This movie surprised me. I am not really big on Charlie Sheen movies, other than Platoon, but this is a truly good movie. Martin Sheen gives a good performance, as does the supporting cast. The setting, while not authentic, is real enough. The dialogue and acting are both excellent and believable. I found I was interested in the characters, and although the ending is predictable, it was fitting. I would recommend this movie to just about anyone, other that the hardcore action enthusiast. Definitely an entertaining film, and one that is quite a bit better than the rating it has received. I wouldn't hesitate to rent it again.
