Trivia

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

Goofs

In the opening sequence a fighter pilot acknowledges cleared for takeoff, presses a toggle on the dash, and we see a gauge spinning up past "1.5" followed by a tail view of the jet taxiing out. However the gauge we saw was clearly marked "MACH", and going MACH 1.5 while taxiing on the ground in a jet fighter is a bit difficult. See more »

Yes, it really is that bad....
25 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sad to see films like this mess get the backing of the studios when little films of far greater significance and value lie in languor. This story (bad guys in a foreign country get close to atomic capabilities that would threaten the world until one turnaround soldier man saves the day and the globe) has been told so many times that the audience can sing along. The use of a lot of night shooting is obviously well considered as there isn't much to see anyway.

What happened to the Wesley Snipes who used to make really interesting films? Obviously the producers felt his star power could drive this dud as the remainder of the cast is unknown (though many seem to be really fine actors without the benefit of a script).

Thought about not wasting time reviewing this film, but then on the other hand, if enough people speak out about the bad movies that just keep coming down the pike, perhaps the studios and theaters will begin to pay attention. Grady Harp
