Starts out good, but ends up dead
6 April 1999 | by badboy29See all my reviews

I knew it was a b-movie to begin with, but the action in the beginning of the film gave me hopes of something good. The use of a segmented view to the military operation is something that I enjoyed, but once I had the complete picture the film went no where. It was as if the writers got killed in the middle of shooting or something. The actors were better than your typical b-movie cast, with the exception of the nurse who was just a typical hardbody blonde. Save your hard earned bucks and pass this movie up.
