In a word.. EXCITING!
25 October 1999 | by (Plano, TX) – See all my reviews

This was every bit as good as the trailers indicated! The role was made for Tom Berenger, but the entire cast was perfect. It's refreshing to see our Government in a good light, since bashing it seems to be the trend these days. It puts back some pride in our country. Congratulations to Showtime for producing a movie far superior to most of what Hollywood is turning out these days. This story SCREAMS FOR A SERIES. I certainly hope Showtime will do it.
