When LT. James Curran is talking with Claire in her hotel room at Quality Inn and Suites on Atlantic Ave in Virginia Beach, you can see Navy piers with ships outside her window. Off the shore of the VA Beach oceanfront there are no piers with ships. These piers were at the Norfolk Naval base over 25 miles away. See more »
Why'd you leave the doorway? Were you looking for a rush, a little rush? Well, I hope you got it. Because you just toasted a man you put in his grave.

I don't know...I don't share much of all your hostility towards this film....I guess it's because I grew up watching this film many many times...as a kid I was enthralled with US Spec. Forces and the SEALS in particular...this film also helped solidify in my mind the reality of national security and who and what threats are...
My favorite scene is the air insertion at dusk...very cool...As a kid I used to absolutely love watching that scene over and over!
It's now 10 years later, and the movie is still vivid in my mind as I'm watching it on AMC...
I thought the scene where Hawkins chases after the truck on his bicycle was indeed very humorous... It's purpose was neither to be the best scene ever...nor the worst...but to show how crazy one of the main characters is....Hawkins, that is...
leading of course up to the death of one of the members...
One of the reasons I like this movie a lot is because it is one of a very small amount of movies that actually take you along with an elite team such as the SEALS on their missions...in action...most action flicks these days are so cliche and incorporate too much Hollywood special effects and little reality...this film was very real and also very relevant in today's world....
I should probably go and grab the DVD to replace my old VHS...
