Sir Ranulph Fiennes, an English adventurer, polar explorer and former SAS man is the author of The Feather Men, the novel from which this film is adapted. Although he has often claimed the novel was a true story, the families of the real dead SAS men named in the novel who died on SAS exercises and the SAS themselves publicly attacked it as sick exploitation and complete fiction. The SAS even went on the record to disown both Fiennes and the book, with Lt-Col Ian Smith telling the Daily Mail 'It was utter b****, the figment of a fertile imagination. What was really upsetting was that it was making a story out of a tragedy.' Maggie Denaro, the widow of one of the dead SAS men said of Fiennes 'It's time he grew up. He's made his money out of the book. He should come clean. When the book came out saying Mike had been murdered, we knew it wasn't true. But that didn't stop our children from being upset when other people believed it.' Although Fiennes claims he sent a manuscript of the book to both the SAS and the families of the dead men, who gave their approval, they have all unequivocally denied his claim. See more »

OK movie in a cut-out type of entertainment. YEs, lots of car crashes, violence and convoluted plot lines. Nothing new...just like WHERE ARE THE POLICE? Out door fights, fast cars on streets and highways, violence all over the place...and no cops ANYWHERE to be seen. A big fight occurs in a lab room of a Hospital. Lasts for about five minutes. Lots of yelling, items falling on the floor and breaking, noise galore and NO ONE NOTICES OR COMES IN TO FIND OUT WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON? Give me a break!!!! These movies are so unrealistic it makes me wonder what the producers, actors and directors are thinking!!! Despite these criticisms, it's an OK way to spend a couple of hours...IF ONE HAS NOTHING ELSE TO DO. Casting is not good and De Niro doesn't belong in garbage like this. Ending is ludicrous. Hope there are no plans for a sequel.
