Trivia

Actors Michael Biehn, Bill Paxton, and Rick Rossovich also appeared in the films The Terminator (1984) and The Lords of Discipline (1983). Biehn and Paxton had already played comrades in Aliens (1986). In an interview promoting the movie, Michael Biehn stated: "Working with Bill and Rick was especially beneficial for this picture. SEALs are a team, and we've worked together so often that we already know what to expect from each another. Hopefully, it shows up there on the screen." In another, more recent interview, Biehn said that their involvement together was intentional: "I think I called Lewis Teague (director) when we were doing Navy Seals, and said what about Bill Paxton, and y'know, I mean we all liked each other, we were all buddies, young and hungry back then, so yeah, we were pulling for each, definitely".

Goofs

When Hawkins jumps from the bridge, he, Curran, and Graham ride through downtown Norfolk, Va., along the Berkley Bridge. When the camera cuts to their conversation about marriage, they're clearly on a different bridge, the Campostella, which is a couple of miles away and does not go through downtown. The camera then cuts back to the Berkley, where Hawkins jumps. See more »

In the Navy
29 January 2006 | by jotix100See all my reviews

As far as some action films go, "Navy Seals", the 1990 film directed by Lewis Teague, doesn't deserve most of the criticism that some contributors to this forum have expressed. While it doesn't add anything to the genre, it is a movie targeted to a certain audience, who will no doubt react to it.

On the other hand, watching it on cable the other night, it proved to be the entertainment it's meant to be and nothing more. Let's hope the real Navy Seals will be more selective in picking someone that is as misguided and egocentric as Lt. Hawkins, who disobeys his orders and causes the death of a man that shouldn't have died.

This film appears to be a vehicle for Charlie Sheen who was at the height of his intense period. Michael Biehn plays the man in command, Lt. Curran with flair. Joanne Whalley is seen only briefly. The rest of the cast, notably, S. Ephata Merkerson and Dennis Haysbert contributed to make the film better than it is.

All in all, this is a film for action fans with not a lot of expectations.
