(2005) The Hunt For Eagle One
Straight-to-rental and fictional storyline about radical Philippine extreme terrorists linked somehow to Osama Bin Laden against the settling of the American army who is aiding the Philippine gov't and it's army for it's capture of them. Everything goes well, until one of their own helicopters called the 'Eagle' was shot down while searching for the terrorists compound, forcing some Marines who're already there lead by Mark Dacascos as Lt. Matt Daniels to change it's plans and save their own or any any known suriviors who made it to the crash!
This film has a look of a bunch of guys playing soldiers instead of convincing viewers that they're really soldiers which might seem fun by being there, but by watching it, it's quite a painful experience. Full of pretentious bull crap with mediocre acting, and the talents of Rutger Hauer and Theresa Randle going to waste. Martial artist Mark Dacascos doesn't even showcase his martial art skills and it's so low budget, you can even tell that the actors playing the soldiers are firing blanks with sparks coming out their weapons and then when people are shooting at each other, it doesn't even match with the people who're getting shot. they don't even get a speck of dirt on their clothing whenever they go through the forest territory!
