Captain Amy Jennings uses a flare gun to ignite a bundle of C4 explosive when the igniter failed (furthermore, the igniter was flaming, which does not happen for standard C4 igniters). C4 cannot be ignited by incendiary objects; only a blasting cap can ignite C4. See more »
I thought it was a pretty good movie overall. My friends and I made a night of it and rented a bunch of these sorts of b-movies, and I have to say this is better than the original "hunt for eagle one." yeah, the plot is laughable at points, but it isn't a badly made movie- like, the music is cool, and the direction seems good. I really liked Mark Dacascos - he's better here than on Iron Chef America. Theresa Randle was good too. Nice seeing a tough girl rather than a victim.
Yeah, like kungfu said the random additions of nightly news shots and the CGI are pretty bad. They don't really serve any purpose, unless you wanted to make a drinking game out of the movie. But whenever the actors are actually in the action and they don't have to use cartoon planes to show what's going on, it's pretty thrilling. I liked the beginning sequence, it got me hooked.
Basically, this is a fun movie. It's not Saving Private Ryan, but it's still has it's good points. When you want something escapist, you can't go wrong with this.
