Goofs

When the SEALs are leaving the seaport with the rescued helicopter crew we see them pause at the bottom of a set of stairs before crossing a narrow lane way. When the camera pans to the roof we see to holes in the concrete slabs on top of the roof. These holes appear when the team sniper, Dane, shots two terrorists behind them. However, this does not happen until about 2 minutes after we see this original screen shot of the team crossing said lane way and they are compromised. See more »

Mindless but Entertaining Action Flick
21 April 2003 | by andyetrisSee all my reviews

This is a rah-rah, gung-ho actioner and as long as that's what you're looking for, you'll have a good time watching this fast-paced story of the white hats versus the black hats.

Sheen, Biehn, Whalley, Kadi, and Paxton do workmanlike jobs with stereotypical roles. The plot is all formula but treated in a slightly unusual way and the action sequences are excellent. U.S. Navy SEALS (The good guys) stumble on a cache of weapons in the hands of mideastern terrorists (the bad guys.) The first attempt to get the goods fails, and in the process of tracking down the cache, everybody's best buddy dies (see if you can guess who THAT would be!) There are more tragic deaths before the finale, which, of course, includes hand-to-hand combat between boss baddie and our hero.

This is very definitely a promo for the U.S. Navy, with terrific shots of U.S. weapons, heroic depictions of our boys in action, and simple, demonized baddies. But if that kind of thing sets you off, it should be pretty obvious that this is not the film for you!
