Did You Know?


An entire dialog sequence was lifted directly from Fred Olen Ray's Active Stealth (1999) when the film came in under time. See more »


In the dogfight between the Russian and US fighters near the end of the film, we see the Russian fighter pilot apparently enabling his cannon by flicking a switch on the left portion of his dashboard, then blazing away at the US fighter. Shortly after the US pilot maneuvers around behind the Russian and apparently arms his air-to-air missiles with exactly the same switch. The identical shot was used to show both operations in 2 completely different aircraft. This shows up again in another shot in the same sequence when we see a Russian pilot actually hitting the correct Master Release to launch a missile, but on a panel with everything printed in English. He never gets a chance to launch and the same US pilot maneuvers behind the second Russin, arms HIS missiles with the exact same panel (identical shot used for the Russian arming his) and firing. Total time between shots: 14 seconds See more »

Don't waste your time!
10 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Being a Snipes fan, I thought this might be worth the money to rent. DON'T BOTHER!! The plot was trite, the acting worse than a middle school drama production and the action unconvincing. I mean, come ON! Army RANGERS that look frightened?! Costume coordinator should have been fired before they began....military costumes ALWAYS include headgear of some kind, especially in a combat situation. The dialogue, what there is of it, was written by an elementary school child that's trying to imitate tough guy conversation from his GI Joe cartoons. With little success! The cartoons are a better viewing experience and they are FREE!! This one should pay the audience! BAD, BAD movie! This one rates an F grade!
