Fresh out of SEAL Team Six, Chuck Pfarrer drew heavily on his experiences for his first screenplay. This action-packed adventure finds Lt. Curran (Michael Biehn) leading a Navy SEAL unit on a mission to Beirut, Lebanon, to rescue a group of American hostages. But the SEALs face an even greater threat when they learn that the terrorists possess Stinger missiles. A reporter (Joanne Whalley) may be the key to helping them track down the stash of weapons before the terrorists can launch a deadly attack. Charlie Sheen and Bill Paxton co-star.
“A group of former Navy SEALs from the original ’62 group sat behind me at a preview screening and had a high time loudly identifying weapons and explosives. They found a few flaws in some technical areas: Some of the splash landings were fudged, and there was apparently ‘not enough killing with knives.’ But they seemed to find the movie’s wisecracking, hard-guy attitude authentic and enjoyed the rush of memories that came flooding back.”
