The rank insignia on General Thompson's (Ron Smerczak)uniform shows five stars indicating that he is a General of the Army (Five Star General). The rank of Five Star General only exists during wartime and is not currently active in the United States Armed Forces.
The last person who was conferred the rank General of the Army was Omar Bradley on September 22, 1950.
There was only one General of the Air Force that existed. That man was Henry "Hap" Arnold , when his rank of General of the Army (conferred December 21, 1944) was re-designated on 7 May 1949. Neither rank of General of the Army nor General of the Air Force exist in peacetime. See more »
As far as epic filmmaking goes, Yossi Wein has hit the nail on the head with this pitch perfect piece of trash movie. It has a certain surreal charm to it. Much like a David Lynch film, Operation Delta Force V: Random Fire leaves many questions open-ended and unanswered.
How come the enemy keeps bombing the same part of the complex in which the Delta Force is stationed...always appearing to have done the same amount of damage? Why is it that five men left the complex safely and yet only four board the helicopter? Why is Jafari bin Kasim's mouth not shown when he talks? If Brad Kennedy survived the missile launch on bin Kasim's hideout, wouldn't he have also taken the same US vessel his fiance was on? If so, why is she surprised when he shows alive as she's sitting down in an outdoor cafe, wearing a sweater, about to drink her lemon-enhanced drink?
All these questions are devices Yossi Wein uses to dangle the audience in his endless mind game. Like a fine wine, this movie gets better and better the more it ages.
10/10 I don't believe in ratings systems, but this film is so good, it deserves one.
