While this was a pilot for a rejected TV series for ABC, it was announced in October 2006 that creator Rod Lurie will redevelop the show for it to be eventually picked up by the then new network, The CW. See more »
This is a second class film for American television, it's not even worth reviewing it. What caused me disgust was to see the following sequence happening on the film (big spoiler, is the only thing that actually happens on this sad film):
The US plans an 'illegal' napalm bombing of Colombia (as if it was possible to exist a 'legal' one). Anyway, it's 'illegal' since the congress must not know anything about it. The information leaks from the Pentagon to a Democrat congressman. A member of his staff smuggles the story to a journalist that eventually publishes it on the internet. As a result, one of the bombers is shot down and an American pilot killed. The mission was, however, successful, napalming the Colombian jungle and killing God knows how many civilians, that the film, of course, does not mention, since they were probably not considered real people by the script writer.
The main character of the film, which is the girlfriend of the guy that smuggles the story out, is supposed to represent a charismatic and really good-natured American girl. However, like in Maoist China, she exposes her lover for having 'blood on his hands', blood of the one American pilot, of course.
