Did You Know?

In the final scene loading the coffin, the aircraft in the hangar, N246DH, is an SA-227 Sweringen Metroliner. Although the logo is not shown, this aircraft is owned and operated by Ameriflight, Inc., an all-cargo company based in Burbank, CA. This particular aircraft is the high gross weight Expediter version and was previously owned by DHL International (Note the DH in the tail number). It was originally white, black and maroon, DHL's colors at the time, before being repainted in the white and two-tone blue colors of Ameriflight in the late 90's.See more »
Revealing mistakes: When Alvaro Cardona brings food to Kevin Derricks while captured, the food is in a McDonald's bag. The fries are in a McDonald's carton, but the wrapper is a counterfeit McDonald's wrapper. In no country do they offer any sandwich that comes in a tin foil wrapper with red lettering on it (like Wendy's). McDonald's only offers paper wrappers and of course for the upper echelon sandwiches, the box.See more »

Best movie ever!!!, 3 April 2011
Author: gustavomarin from Sweden

What a great film... it is full off valuable facts plus the quality of the production is just stunning!

To summarise a few of the best facts and contributions of this film in my life: - A blind guy with a digital camera produces a better footage that this people. - All the north American girls are hot (like bimbos) - All the north American guys are ripped (specially the soldiers) - All the south Americans are fat, sweaty and wear hats. - Bogota is a hot and humid city (did not know that) - Colombia's conflict could be ended using between 3 to 5 soldiers (americans of course)

ARE YOU F#@#$# SERIOUS... I would like to be able to give negative points in IMDb!
