Trivia

Despite those named in the credits, the film went through another draft by Kevin Jarre. In one draft, Hawkins (Charlie Sheen) sacrifices himself to rescue Curran (Michael Biehn), who ends up with the love interest. In another version, Curran is killed off rescuing some kids, and Hawkins and Claire Varrens (Joanne Whalley) are left to mourn his passing. Also in one of those drafts, Curran is an accomplished boxer who squares off in a fight with Hawkins, who's into karate. The golf sequence in the film was a concession when the film's leads objected to a Top Gun (1986)-style scene with knife-throwing contests and bikini bimbos. See more »

A classic to me...
1 March 2004 | by NickTRSee all my reviews

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...
