A four-men Delta Force team is trying, with a help of a female scientist, to stop a mad terrorist who wants to detonate nukes in order to cause a massive earthquake. The team is out-manned and out-gunned, but has nothing to lose.
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 »
The most unexpected plus in this otherwise botched job is seeing the fabulous African railways steam train heading through the veld in the opening scene. After this, however, it's downhill all the way with a basically boring 'deja vu' scenario: megalomanic terrorist uses brainwashed hostages as human suicide bombers. Turn to CNN and it's happening daily for real. Apart from that there's plenty of military hardware mostly wasted in badly filmed action SFX where explosions look more like fireworks.
For the money they could have done much better.
