A good movie, although a bit fake
15 October 1999 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews

The actions scenes were extradonairly good. The gun fights and tactics were also fairly accurate. Although I found some parts fake, i.e. when he drove up to the army base in a bomber jacket and blue jeans. I also noticed that in one scene, even though there was a tank chase, the people in the base just walked around like normal, even if the tank was feet away. The casting was fairly well done, and I got the sense that, for a low budget film, this movie was very good in military, civilian, and all other aspects.
