Trivia

During the Special Features "Making Of/Behind The Scenes" segment included on the DVD, it is explained that the movie was filmed in Canada. The producers couldn't easily find locations with palm trees to add realism to outside scenes. Two Special Effects personnel are shown moving "fake palm trees" into position and standing them up on their large flat bases, just like setting up orange traffic cones. Dirt and weeds are shown being placed around the base to add to the illusion of them being real trees. See more »

Well, the costumes look pretty good...
11 June 2006 | by (Hamilton, Ontario) – See all my reviews

...it's also noteworthy that it's not simply, as is usually the case, of Americans good, non-Americans bad. However, EVERYTHING else is weak.

Cliché's abound in this would-be attempt at a dose of reality: the black soldier named Jackson, the Hispanic soldier from Miami, the anonymous Southern-drawled soldier, and the sarge who everyone would give their life for, who everybody calls, well, Sarge. The bad doesn't stop at characters: some bad wound makeup, soldiers looking like they're holding a gun for the first time, and bad guys who NEVER take cover and can't hit ANYTHING with an RPG all compound the ridiculous notion that all of these poignant moments are "typical" in ONE DAY.

Every single story element has been executed hundreds of times before and BETTER. Crappy writing coupled with horrific acting really blend together to create plenty of "did they really just say that" moments.

Bottom line: if this is supposed to be army propaganda, it's too silly to capture any sense of pride of the army. And if it's supposed to be entertainment, it's laughable. 1 out of 10
