Goofs

Hale remarks after the nuclear bomb detonates that they are safe because no radiation escaped. That is false. The detonation of the bomb in the mine produced a visible fireball, which means that the blast was not contained. The fireball/dust cloud is laced with plenty of fresh radioactive substances. They are safe as long as they are upwind from the mine, not because "no radiation escaped". See more »

Baker: [points his gun at Terry] I don't know, looks like we got ourselves a stand-off.
Riley Hale: [Hale lowers his gun and shoots Baker in the leg. Baker screams and loses control of his gun]
[ramming Baker's head into the steering wheel]
Riley Hale: NO-WE-DON'T!
[Throws Baker out of the Humvee]

I love this movie!
29 July 2016 | by elvispresley-08260See all my reviews

If John Travolta never did Pulp Fiction, we wouldn't have such greats as this action masterpiece. I have to thank John Woo for directing this movies, because it has just blow me away. Travolta as a bad guy is just the best thing that could have happen in this movie. He played his role perfectly and I cant picture as a good in this film. This action flick has every thing you want: Explosions, Guns, boxing, Jets, bombs, it has everything basically. The intro is brilliant and the ending is brilliant, just because of John Travolta. You can tell straight away that John Travolta could get his arm chopped of and he wouldn't give a too much f**** and he would probably say its a good thing it happened. Basically what I am trying to say, is his character is cocky and doesn't take any crap from anyone. I just love this film. 10/10 any day.
