Movie was more of a way to cash in on the hysteria of the time. For those who watch it, pay careful attention to the terrain, most of it was filmed in downtown Dallas and nearby areas. Better yet, watch Walker Texas Ranger and this movie at the same time. Look familiar? hehe
Ironically it was cheaper to spread sand and slap styrofoam on old buildings than film in LA or Canada, although the namesake star is a Canadian.
Some trivia, the hospital used was an abandoned one and when the art department put a Saddam portrait outside, it would be paintballed overnight and some guy drove all the way from Longview to Dallas to protest the Iraqis invading Texas.
Overall I would give it a 5 out of 10, not sure if it is available at your local Blockbuster yet.
