Anyone who knows how SEALs operate would see many things wrong with this movie. About half way through it just became unbearable. I was willing to let the current ARMY uniforms that were not even available back in 91 slip by. Seal teams are comprised of more than 5 people and when one is injured, someone is there to pick up the slack. They don't recruit from the outside and just magical appoint that person as a NAVY SEAL on the deck of an aircraft carrier. the writer of this movie should have known his audience would not be gullible little kids. Second, a Chief is not called sir, or commander, or captain, or any thing other than Chief. that is just plain NAVY tradition. he is not instantly promoted to Master Chief, then back to Chief. They could have at least learned the rank structure. Also, they don't use Desert eagles that are really BB guns(you can tell because it doesn't "blow back". HALO jumps are not from helicopters, performed with gas masks, you need oxygen. and the FINAL STRAW was the communication equipment had RADIOSHACK on it. COME ON!!!!
