Trivia

The scene where the rocket did not explode is not a miracle or because he was lucky. Rocket Propelled Grenades (RPG) and many shoulder fired Rocket Launchers ammunition is made to explode after certain amount of spins. This is a safety design in case it bounces close to the person shooting it. So in that scene, the Grenade/Rocket did not made the necessary spins to activate the detonating mechanism which is a pressure switch in the point. See more »

Goofs

When in a two truck convoy traveling through the cartel-controlled area of Mexico, the first half of the trip features a GMC and an International dump truck. The second half features a GMC, still in the lead, but the second truck is now a Freightliner. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
LT Rorke: Before my father died, he said the worst thing about growing old was that other men stopped seeing you as dangerous. I've always remembered that, how being dangerous was sacred, a badge of honor. You live your life by a code, an ethos. Every man does. It's your shoreline. It's what guides you home. And trust me, you're always trying to get home.

Shameless Recruitment COD Attention grabbing rubbish.
28 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Navy Seals can't act, this film proves it, but apparently they can fire guns and stop terrorists... so why aren't they doing that in real life instead of in this shameless recruitment propaganda passed off as a film? Sure the action and "props" are authentic, sure you have to respect the men risking their lives for their countries, but for the sake of the integrity of the movie why not let actors who can convincingly portray a soldier do that, while the real "heroes" aren't spending tax payers money to fly real helicopters around.

Finally the recuitment attempts... "this film is dedicated to the men and women who might join the forces in the future"??? or something along those lines is the last thing you see. Then there's all the referemces and I'd say even stolen ideas from call of duty games to get kids to think war is some kind of game, or fun? Lets face the facts, the "war" should've been over when Osama got popped, our economy is still failing, we didn't get any oil, and our brothers and sisters are still getting shot at for it, sometimes you gotta realize some things aren't worth fighting for, and this movie proves how silly things have become.
