"This movie is really good. It is action packed from the beginning til the end. It is not one of those typical Commando movies where one guy takes on an army, kills them all and escapes without a scrath. This movie is very realistic with figthing scenes, where half of the Seal team are killed in combat. Once again it's an excellent flick and if you think it deserves only one star, you need to get your head examined."
Zero stars. I threw it away after ten painful minutes.

"Possibly the worst "military" movie I've seen. Well, sort of seen. It went right in the trash after ten brutal, endless, painful minutes. I bought it off a dollar rack (which speaks volumes right there) and didn't even have the heart to give it
to someone else.
This makes the old 'Navy SEALS' with Charlie Sheen look like 'Tears of the Sun'."
"You'll be on your own. It's damn near a suicide mission"

A terrorist named Casper is looking for a cluster bomb and a team of US SEALS try to beat him to it. The leader of the team is forced to take along a criminal who is an expert in bombs. But do we know who this bomb expert really is? He's a smooth talker and doesn't mind talking about how he likes being a criminal, but does seem like a good guy.
I like fist and kick fighting movies a lot more than shoot-em-ups, but I still enjoyed this. The stealth techniques are used very well and the explosions are fun to watch. The amount of action is just right. Not too much and not too little.
The story gets good in the last 30 minutes. It is well directed all the way through and has some decent acting, with a few actors that are above average, but more gets revealed about the villain Casper towards the end and there is some really good character development. The first hour is only average, but this movie actually turned out much better than I expected. Not groundbreaking, but an enjoyable direct to TV action movie.
The DVD from DEJ Productions has perfect picture quality and good sound."
