Continuity is not an issue.
15 June 2001 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I'm happy to accept the limitations of B grade movies. However, this movie is just plain careless in its continuity e.g. parachutists who change their chute before they land. The movie uses stock footage of navy manoeuvres that it tries to force to fit the plot. The same oil storage facility is blown up at both the beginning and end of the film (and it's completely irrelevant to any plot at the end). And for some reason our 'hero' actually stands before a sunrise/sunset at the end (which does blend in with the other corny moments which are supposed to make us relate to the character). Give this one a miss.
