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.

A commando of retired US SEALs must invade an island in North Japan from where a rogue ex-SEAL menaces to launch a nuclear strike against the US. Because of a leak of natural gas, fighting is restricted to blade weapons.
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 »
Horrible! Even die-hard action fans should stay away!
I love action films, and I rented this because the rental-case artwork looked interesting and made the film look exciting. It is basically about Arab terrorist Jafari bin Kasim who brainwashes American combat veterans and sends them on suicide bombing missions. The film opens with a brainwashed man flying an explosives-laden Cessna plane into a moving train carrying a European ambassador, which blows up the train on a bridge over a lake. There are a few more suicide bombings throughout the film (none of them very exciting) so finally, the Delta Force team is called in to track down Kasim and kill him and his thugs. So the movie is basically very boring with terrible acting until the final scene, where the Delta Force invades Kasim's terrorist base in the middle of Kenya and blows it up, killing many terrorists. It is a 90-minute "action" film with only a single 10-minute action scene, which is very poorly filmed in blurry slow-motion and it is very hard to see what's going on. There is a very short gun-battle in the final scene and perhaps a single terrorist is killed and then everything blows up. That is it. How Kasim was able to kidnap and brainwash Americans, I do not know, but even if you are absolutely in love with action films, this was horrible, even if you take into consideration that it was only a made-for-video movie. STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS AND YOU WILL THANK ME. Feel free to email me if you have any questions or comments.
