Goofs

The M1A1 offered for sale is reported to have reactive armour and a 90mm cannon. The M1A1 clearly hasn't got the reactive armour skirts on it (Reactive armour are a series of raised explosive plates added to the outside of the tank) and they have always come with a 105mm cannon on the M1, later models having a 120mm cannon, A 90mm cannon would have been impossible to come by having been phased out by the appearance of the M1A1.

Somewhere Between the Cradle and the Grave...
3 March 2003 | by (Cheyenne, WY) – See all my reviews

Not a bad movie but nothing spectacular in terms of originality...

DMX beats up some people. Jet Li beats up some people. Gabrielle Union takes (most of) her clothes off (with her fine self). Lots of stuff breaks and blows up.

6 out of 10; I'd wait for the DVD...
