Did You Know?

While the "Flaming Sword" kept VeraCruz's men pinned down in the valley, one of the farmers manages to tag one of the Colombian soldiers. Sam compliments him saying "Good Shot Mando! Don't get cocky." Such is what Han Solo said to Luke Skywalker in Episode 4 of Star Wars during their escape from the Death Star.See more »
Continuity: When the helicopters come up firing, you can see the actors' breaths and see fog in the background scenery. Just prior to and following the helicopters' arrival and firing, the sun is shining and no frigid temps.See more »

Movie Connections:


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"?

One for the Bruce Campbell fans!, 23 April 2011
Author: chrichtonsworld from Netherlands

People can moan and shout all they want. Bruce Campbell has charisma. He doesn't have to do anything and he still is likable on the screen. Aside from the simple storyline. Bruce Campbell shows what makes Same Axe such a great character. With all his flaws he is a person you can rely on. No wonder that Michael Weston trusts him. While there aren't many references to the show Burn Notice itself. It does give the fans where they have been craving for from the start. To have a Sam Axe storyline not involving Mike Weston. I think they should do a whole bunch of these. Even if the show would end. Only with much better story lines.Now it is possible that even having charisma is not enough for people to like Bruce Campbell. Well,if that is the case than I think you will have trouble liking this movie. Since the whole movie is build on Bruce.I was skeptic at first. But overall the movie is very entertaining. Forget about the show and it's twists and just soak in a little bit of Bruce.
