Ok movie. The story is formulaic, the characters are routine, and half of the performances are kind of stale, aside from Biehn and Sheen, but the action and directed are well-executed and there's a certain charm to the film. Plus, that golfing sequence.

This is not a very good flick. Just another Top Gun wannabe with zero plot. But I love it. It's most memorable performance, Bill Paxton.

America's elite (Charlie Sheen and friends) are keeping the world safe from terrorists. Hopefully, these fratboys are not indicative of type of character the real Navy Seals seek. Good for unintended laughs.

Bad camp and too uninvolving to keep an interest in the proceedings

A standard action film.

The agenda is just too loud in this blusterbuss of a movie.

Starts off okay but just gets really dumb. This movie believes that it's still totally in the 80s, and tries to be Top Gun so hard. But Top Gun, despite it's dumb scenes, had some pretty cool moments, which this film lacks.

Underrated action flick, don't get the hate, it's as cheesy as action films of its era can get,
If you expect something deep and meaningful from this film, then you're shit out of luck.
This is a wonderful mix of Top Gun and Delta Force.

This is probably one of the best over the top kick ass gung ho testosterone filled alpha male fests. You want ice cool shade wearing showing off with ridiculously dangerous stunts then this is it. The cast is what really rocks here with a classic list of 80's action stars...Sheen, Biehn, Paxton and Rossovich, can't get much better than that right.

The plot is pretty much one set piece after another with little plot in between which normally would be poor but this film is practically a late entry in the 80's action genre so its easily forgiven. The plot tends to circle around the good guys trying to pick up these missiles before the bad guys (Middle Eastern chaps) can get a hold of em. A few hostage rescues in there too of course...God bless America etc...Its gloriously silly in places clearly leaning more towards a hyped up action man vibe over simulated realism...this film has a high popcorn count, no thinking required.

Well I say that but there is a small amount of semi realism here, these guys aren't totally inflated versions of SEAL's. The film does attempt to bring some real life issues into the fold from time to time, family problems etc...barely touched on but its there. There is of course the obligatory tension between certain members of the team at one point, Biehn being the by the books leader where as Sheen is his typical rebellious self.

Again this also leads to the obligatory death of a fellow team member due to Sheen's reckless actions in the field, its all very predictable and we've seen this type of thing before. Here its cheesed up to the max with Sheen getting out of control and becoming a loose cannon whilst the others must all band together and be even more macho and stoic than ever before. Watch those tanned jawlines clench as they bare the weight of their high profile responsibilities.

Plenty of flashy stunts, many witty one liners and quips and a suitably kick ass finale as the guys run around in war torn Beirut. Its not over the top with blood or profanity which shows you don't need that to be cool (Expendables take note), but it isn't for the younger viewers that's for sure (everything modern take note).

The films gives you exactly what you'd expect with a cast line up like this, pure slick action with extra man nipples. Think of this as the 'Top Gun' of cliched special forces macho porn, but its oh so good at the same time, undiluted awesomeness fuel.

This movie wasn't good in 1990 and it's still not good today. Generic action sequences. A horrible 80's esque soundtrack. Weak script.

For me it's a reminder that just because a Blu Ray/DVD purchase is a good deal, does not always mean it's a smart buy.

Hasn't aged well :'(

Big, dumb, cliche-ridden relic of the early '90s. Thoroughly boring. It has not aged well, and it kind of sucked to begin with.

This film was one of those films that my brother and I would hire on VHS on a quarterly basis. Charlie Sheen, Michael Beihn, Bill Paxton...the guy from Major League who had all the crazy voodoo rituals...what more could you have wanted. Many years later, watching it again it's exactly as clichéd as you'd expect, however it contained a lot of stylistic nods to the films of Tony Scott...the score almost ripped straight from Top Gun. Not to mention the weird mid-movie montage sequence taking place with all the lads running riot on a golf course.
