Trivia:
Sam throws the chainsaw at the soldiers ambushing him and Flaming Sword, then says "Very groovy!" This is a nod to Bruce Campbell's character, Ash, from Evil Dead II; where he found a chainsaw and said "Groovy."See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: Several uniform mistakes for Sam: Sam is called a Navy SEAL but in the beginning is shown with a surface warfare officer breast insignia instead of a special warfare insignia. Ribbons in the Navy are worn such that rows are touching each other, but Sam wears them with a space between rows. None of his ribbons are ribbons that I have seen, and he has an extremely small number of them for an O-5 (CMDR) especially a SEAL O-5. He is also missing a ribbon that all members of the armed forces would have in 2005, the national defense service ribbon.See more »
Quotes:
[Sam confesses to Michael that he's found out his new girlfriend is an Admiral's wife]
Sam Axe:So, look, what do you think I should do here?
Michael Westen:Go to Maitland and explain. Tell him you didn't know who she was until things had already gotten out of hand. In fact, call him right now.
Sam Axe:Mike, that's not what I- look, I was more looking for that super-spy advice on how to keep this quiet.
Michael Westen:You remember that thing in Kiev with Misha? When he sold out the wetwork team on their way to Paris?
Sam Axe:Hell, yeah. What about it?
Michael Westen:That's the kind of secret that stays secret, because if it comes out, people get sent to Siberia. This will come out as soon as Maitland looks sideways at his wife.

FAQ

When Sam is in his "whites" before the other Navy Officers, why isn't he wearing the SEAL Trident?
Was Sam still wearing his side arm when he returned to the Columbian forces after being "kidnapped"?

Vintage Bruce, not much else., 8 May 2011
Author: RamblerReb from United States

As a long-time Bruce fan (I first saw Evil Dead in the early 90's, not realizing the man already had a cult fan base), I enjoyed every scene Bruce was in, and since he was in virtually every scene in the film, obviously I enjoyed most of the film. The doctor guy was annoying, the love interest was whiny but an OK foil, the teen girl was hot but evidently found the scenery too tempting to resist gobbling up in big bites. The villains were competently played but telegraphed oily evil immediately, losing all sense of suspense there.

It was predictable and a bit preachy, and the mention of the SOA was bordering on heavy-handed, but Bruce charms and smirks his way through it and makes an otherwise forgettable bit of tripe an actual pleasure to watch. It is significant, however, that no one but him could have.

Of course, one doesn't watch Bruce Campbell for the outstanding special effects (Alien Apocalypse, anyone?), the great supporting cast (The Man with the Screaming Brain?), or the realistic, down-to-earth plots (any Evil Dead you care to name), one watches for Bruce. By that standard, this movie does fine.
