When Dunn says "I'm a marine, we don't plan, we improvise", the pack that he is wearing on his back from the scene before is missing. The pack returns in the next shot. See more »
This was action packed enough so I couldn't drag myself away from the T.V.
Definitely worth the price of the rental! I can't believe I never saw this movie before. It was action packed, gripping, THrilling, No Love scenes and John Voight was masterful in his part. I hated him in this movie, and wanted to see him in pain, Which means the acting works! Rent this movie and let me know what you think. I didn't think it was as hilarious as the last commenter but it some funny parts.Keenan was also a great asset to thismovie. I've seen him in 1 other movie like this and he was good in that as well. I Don't understand why he doesn't do more movies. Jill Hennesy, although GREAT in "Crossing Jordan" didn't really impress me. Maybe this is her first movie. I expected a little more from her. This Movie wasn't your typical "ARNOLD" or "BRUCE WILLIS" movie with the corny one liners. This was much better thought out. When a comment was made after some sort of action theme, the lines were actually funny.
