When the CIWS gun shoots down the F/A-18, the ammo belt appears not to move. This is because on the Phalanx CIWS 20mm weapons system, the ammunition is fed from the ammo tank to the chamber in a closed shroud system, essentially a tube for the ammo to pass through. See more »
[Krill reads his personal file, while he is still dressed as a drag queen]
Listen to the *shit* I've had to put up with! "In the past few weeks, Commander Krill has become increasingly hostile to the crew. Possible due to anger over my last reviews of his performance. I recommend he be given a psychological evaluation before taking over his next ASSIGNMENT!"
Do I *look* like I need a psychological evaluation?
[barely suppressing his laughter]
Not at all.

This movie is definately Steven Seagal's best movie. This movie is definately worth a look. The supporing cast like Tommy Lee Jones and Gary Busey make very good villans. Jones did a great job as the half insane mercinary who's in on a plot of hijacking a U.S. Battleship. There are a lot of actors in this one who would appear in director Andrew Davis's next film "The Fugitive" The action in this movie is great. I think this movie also contains some good cinematography by Frank Tidy. This is not a movie you can take seriously. You have to use your imagination and know it's not real but pretend it is. *** out of ****
