Tough guy Thomas Beckett is a US Marine working in the Panamanian jungle. His job is to seek out rebels and remove them using his sniper skills. Beckett is notorious for losing his partners on such missions. This time he's accompanied by crack marksman Richard Miller, who's more of an office-type. Together they plan to seek out an important rebel leader, whilst avoiding a rogue marksman who frequents this part of the jungle. Written by

The film was marketed two different ways. The international trailer--produced by the independent financiers behind the film--focused more on the psychological and thriller elements of the story and showcased the struggle between Beckitt and Miller. The US trailer, cut by TriStar, who picked it up, was accompanied by the muscular score from Terminator 2: Judgment Day
(1991) and focused more on the action elements, highlighting the chase and shootout sequences. See more
Beckett is a Master Gunny Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. However, the crew chief of the helicopter that extracts him in the opening scenes calls him "Gunny". The term "Gunny" is used as a familiarity with Gunnery Sergeants only, and a Master Gunnery Sergeant would NEVER be addressed as such. See more

He's a fuckin' spook. Ex-CIA. I met him once up in El Salvador. Now he's an enforcer for the cocaine monkeys. I'll take out the lieutenant, you concentrate on him. Now put a fuckin' bullet through his heart.
