Storyline

Lieutenant Casey Sheppard, US SEAL, (Michael Worth) takes exception to the useless brutality of his chief Frank Ratliffe (Damian Chapa), during a search and destroy mission. Later, back to their army base in Okinawa Island, Japan, it's obvious they are interested in Sensei Matsumura's (George Cheung) twin daughters, the daring Nikki (Karen Kim) and the coy Kamiko (Karen Kim in a double role). Frank goes on a date with Nikki and sometime later Casey finds her corpse, and sees Frank in the process of hiding evidence of a murder-for-rape crime. Three years later, Frank Ratliffe is a criminal operating from a former Russian island, who has turned against his own SEAL corps and about to kidnap Dr. Jane Burrows (Kate Connor), a physicist scientist, to force her help him getting two nuclear bombs ready for a strike against the United States. Backed by an army of dozens of killers, plus Sophia (Sophia Crawford), a sexy expert with the saber, and Borris (Velizar Binev) the scarf strangler, he ... Written by Artemis-9

Awesome fight choreography! Why do so many people hate this?
17 January 2004 | by (Phoenix, AZ) – See all my reviews

I'm surprised at the number of people who have bashed this movie to pieces. They base their opinions off of logic too, which is completely inappropriate for this type of movie. Yes, the script is badly written, there are a lot of factual errors, this isn't an accurate portrayal of SEAL type stuff, yes all that is obvious.

The reason why this movie exists is to present Hong Kong style action to America. Former Jackie Chan Stunt Team member, Andy Cheng designs some of the best fight scenes in recent years. While CHARLIE'S ANGELS: FULL THROTTLE, TOMB RAIDER 2, and THE MUSKETEER suffer from having no sense of action, US SEALS knows how to deliver the goods. It's interesting to note how a lot of weapon-work was employed in the action scenes. I was expecting more hand to hand style combat. The movie takes a while to get going, but the fights are well worth waiting for. Especially in a scene where the good guys are confronted by 100 henchmen, and have to fight all of them off. It was reminiscent of the big action sequence in TAI-CHI MASTER (1993).

The director Issac Florentine is one of the few people working in the video market who does a good job. Unlike a lot of other directors, he takes pride in his job, and does his best to make cool movies. (COLD HARVEST and SPECIAL FORCES)

It's safe to say though, that this movie is only meant for people who like lots of cool action. Everyone else is better off staying away.
