Did You Know?


During the rescue mission, the person leading SEAL team has the rank of commander, but a captain is said to have died during the operation. A US Navy Captain (O-6) is above a Commander (O-5) and would be the leader of the team. It is also unlikely that a US Navy Captain would be a such a mission, since it is one rank below a rear admiral. See more »

A Leo top-ten
9 December 2012 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

These days, the typical Hollywood political intrigue/action film is conspicuously less well-written than even a second-rate WEST WING episode like this, a bizarre reversal of fortune from the days of the original MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE and THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR (in other words, if the TV/movie incarnations of MI had been reversed, it might have been one of the most intelligent franchises of all time). This episode is a beautiful effort, bouncing back and forth from the corrupt intrigues of a defense contractor friend of Leo's (Jeffrey DeMunn, THE GREEN MILE), back to the time when they were shot down in Vietnam, and Leo's life was saved. Philip Baker Hall (BOOGIE NIGHTS, MAGNOLIA) debuts as a grizzled senator. Brian Kerwin (MURPHY'S ROMANCE, KING KONG LIVES) debuts as a ranger flame from C.J.'s past, returned to bewitch and bother her. A touching version of "My Country 'tis of Thee", by Crosby & Nash, lends emotional texture to Leo's despair.
