Along with using two different types of helicopters for the take off from the ship to the insertion into the embassy, there are two totally different squadrons used for during the time which would take only a few hours. On the ship, when the Marines are boarding the aircraft, the side of the aircraft reads what squadron that aircraft belongs to which, on the ship scene it is HMM-764, a reserve squadron based out of Edwards Air Force Base in CA. When the Marines get dropped off at the Embassy the squadron on the aircraft reads HMM-268, a active squadron out of Camp Pendleton. See more »

Without doubt this has to rate not only as one the worst films I've ever had the misfortune to view but also as one of the most disgusting. The moral basis of this movie is so unbelievably stomach churning and inhumane that it beggars belief. In my innocence I never believed such views and perspectives could actually make it onto the big screen where they could poison the minds of the impressionable. The whole movie amounted to a demonization of the "evil nasty" Yemenese people who seem to be quite a mindless bunch of rock-throwing gun-toting terrorists if you believe the spin this movie throws at you, and at the same time a rationalisation of a mindless bloody massacre by the U.S. marines. Surely any U.S. marines out there who have seen this movie must have been deeply offended at how they were portrayed. I reckon Dr Joseph Goebbels and his ministry of propaganda could have learned a lesson or two from this movie(propaganda flick). It defies belief that two fine actors such as Samuel L. Jackson and Tommy Lee Jones would consent to appear in rubbish like this, even though they gave quite good performances, despite the hole-ridden plot. Have they fallen on hard times or what is their excuse? The only reason I could possibly recommend this movie would be to illustrate how one goes about producing propaganda. There are so many flaws with this movie that I won't even begin to list them. One can't really appreciate how bad and vile it is until it is actually viewed, but do yourself a favour and avoid it like the plague. Terrible - morally reprehensible - vile!
