Goofs

The Situation Room display showed the track of the rescue helicopter that had picked up the downed Hawkeye crew and was returning to the USS COWPENS. It showed a silhouette of a SH-60 Seahawk series helicopter but had it incorrectly labeled as a Sea Stallion (CH-53). 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.
