Did You Know?

Goofs

In the scene with the general, his uniform is incorrect. He mixes medals with ribbons on Class A, and the US-lapel device is the one worn by enlisted men, not officers. The desert camo uniform worn by the hero has epaulets, not a feature of US uniforms, and for some reason is buttoned all the way to the throat. See more »

Quotes

Officer: It's like a Friday the 13th Nightmare.

Crazy Credits

The American Dinosaur Association monitored all dinosaur action. Scenes depicting violence to dinosaurs were simulated. No dinosaur was harmed or mistreated during the making of this film. See more »

16 November 1998 | by (West Lafayette) – See all my reviews

Well here I go with another B industry movie. It's sad enough to see some badly made films but I don't care if a B industry or C industry produces the film. Show some effort in your work. The characters are really bad. The acting isn't in question in this one (surprise), but plot is. How can a tight-knit squad witness two of their fellow soldiers butchered, and then go on as if nothing happened. What sickened me was how the writer even threw in the remaining members a scene where they joke about how nice the doctor's ass was. Give me a break.
