Ah, the 80s, watching this movie I never felt gladder to leave that decade behind. There's not much to get about this movie from the start. It was mad simply to be loud and entertaining. It fumbles in so many aspects, notably that many of the service men's' antics would lead to court-martial in reality. The 80s music that plays constantly is annoying, ruining even the supposedly tragic moments. Michael Biehn is no doubt a good actor, but the writing doesn't offer his character anything emotionally. Charlie Sheen is enjoyably over the top in his shenanigans, from jumping off bridges to avoid weddings to leaping onto a tow truck to get his beloved car back. Naturally, he's too cool to die in this not so convoluted story.
The only character I really enjoyed was Bill Paxton as "God", how awesome. A ridiculous movie by all means; just how so many stars were sucked into this low level production I'm not entirely sure.
