Topper Harley is found working as an odd-job-man in a monastery. The CIA wants him to lead a rescue mission into Iraq, to rescue the last rescue team, who went in to rescue the last rescue team who... who went in to rescue hostages left behind after Desert Storm. The President is Tug Benson, who also likes to be in on the action. Basically, it's a send-up of all the big shoot-em-up Rambo/Robocop/T2/Commando-type movies.Written by
At one point during the sequence which displays an on-screen body count tally, the movie boasts an ostensibly higher number of deaths than RoboCop (among other famous shoot'em ups). Miguel Ferrer, who plays Harbinger in this movie, also starred in RoboCop, and ended up 1 out that film's 30 strong body count. See more »
When they are rigged to parachute in, their gear is in a free-fall configuration and they are wearing free-fall parachutes, but their chutes have a yellow static line that opens the chute automatically. Free-fall parachutes don't have a yellow static line, they have a rip-cord that the jumper must pull themselves or is automatically deployed at pre-determined altitude by an altimeter the jumper wears on their wrist.

The film has had a checkered UK censorship history. For its original cinema release, 54 secs were cut for a 12 certificate, removing all footage of nunchakus during the Rambo scene and editing the spoof Basic Instinct sex scene in the apartment. The video was rated PG and the cuts were expanded with a further 1 min 7 secs of additional edits to remove a single use of 'fuck' and the complete removal of the bedroom scene. The same print was used as a basis for the PG-rated DVD, although the distributors made a further two minutes of edits including the removal of Ramada's line "Wild, free, passionate, unbridled sex. I'd fondle you in ways you can't imagine" and even the already PG approved scene in the limousine. The UK Blu-ray version reinstates the previously cut footage and was passed 12 uncut in 2013.

While the original will always be considered better, this film still held true to the Hot Shots mentality. While the whole concept may have been a little dragged out, at least they didn't try to make another movie to further destroy this franchise. Charlie Sheen was once again, Charlie Sheen. With yet another tongue-in-cheek performance, Sheen proves to us he is one of the most nonchalant comedy actor of our day. Plenty of funny things to talk about, but far too many to mention.
