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 new commander of a Navy Underwater Demolition Team--nicknamed "Frogmen"--must earn the respect of the men in his unit, who are still grieving over the death of their former commander and resentful of the new one.
Not the worst movie ever made, but it comes close.
First of all, this is a movie with semi-realism, people actually die from bullets and on both sides. There's probably more "friendlies" dying in this movie than in any other U.S. stereotype-film.
The movie is pretty straightforward, there are some weak attempts at trying to write subplots (ie. the world's most dangerous terrorist manages to be a part of the Seal Team (don't ask)) there's also the occasional "My wife got killed by americans"-whine, and "America is a murderer"... really strong motives.
As for cinematography this is pretty bad, there are lots of jump-cuts, and there are some beginner's mistakes that make it look like a B-production. One thing that's pretty hilarious is that they've done a voice-dub when the seal-team is diving, I don't know, but when you're scuba-diving I find it hard to believe that you're able to speak in a radio, and the mindless things they say "Oh yeah!, I cut him", "I'm coming to help you guys" (when they're in the same cramped area.
The acting is really subpar, which considering the really vivid imagery of explosions tells of a costly setup. There's namely LOTS of explosions in this movie, the pyrotechnicians really had a great time.
Some of the shots show really expensive effects (ie. they drive a couple of trailers off a cliff, one blows up, another one goes under the water), they sink a really big boat, etc.
If you're really BORED and out of war-movies to watch, this can maybe (worst-case-scenario) be something to see. Otherwise, avoid it. Just fast-forward to the scenes with the explosions, and you might get 3-4 minutes of enjoyment from this.
The reason the rubber boat exploded, was because there was a case full of explosives in it.
