Did You Know?


Phoenician Entertainment / Franchise Pictures went through three editors and two directors trying to "fix" the film without any re-shoots. Eventually, about 40 minutes of the original 100 minutes from Damian Lee's assembly was replaced with 40 new minutes of new connective exposition and action sequences to make the film seem cohesive, as well as stock footage from Phoenician titles and some bigger theatrical movies.

Dr. Christian wears Lieutenant bars, meaning she is an officer, but wears a pea-coat worn only by enlisted personnel. Also, rank is not worn on pea-coats as she is shown wearing. See more »


Kretz: Attention all personnel. We are ready to load the virus.
Matt Hendricks: You're gonna have a hell of a problem. All your friends are on permanent sick leave.
Kretz: Sergei, Grotz, Yemen? Report.
Matt Hendricks: Right names, wrong plane of existence pal.

A movie even a jarhead couldn't love
26 August 2001 | by Alan-40See all my reviews

I rented this DVD as "Agent Red" and maybe someone changed the title hoping someone would be fooled into renting it like I did. I fast forwarded looking for the good parts and didn't find any. The plot holes you could float an aircraft carrier through.

Did you know nuke submarines had concrete floors and walls?

Anyway, to illustrate how bad it is the best acting comes from none other than Randolph Mantooth. What more can I say?
