    Did the script writers really believe that people speak this way? I fell asleep during the first half, kept watching, and didn't miss a thing that effected the plot. I think I enjoyed it more only having to wath half, but I still could not wait for it to end.

    The opening scene seems promising. The next thing you know you're trying to see some cramped location and interior with a hand cam shakier than a thrash metal music video. The whole movie thereafter is a mess. It's confusing not because the story is complex but because the story is never properly delivered. It's just a montage of depressing scenes full of tragedy, mayhem and murder. It fails to ever produce anything coherent. All the qualities of camera work, pyrotechnics, aviation, props, costumes, and delivery are wasted by the simple fact that none of it coalesces.

    Weak thriller, and clearly low budget in style and acting.

    Capt. Jack Poynt (Antonio Sabato Jr.) is a Military Intelligence Officer who is assigned to duty in Vietnam. While there his primary task is to locate and destroy land minds and any other artifact which is believed to be U.S. property. What he discovers instead is a personal soldier's diary depicting a secret and covert operation in which the Vietnamese locals were captured, tortured, murdered and subjected to chemical toxins under the direction of Col. Max Camden (Fred Ward) and the men of his special task force. Worse, the soldier's diary reveals the fate of Poynt's own mother, an army nurse who opposed Camden's genocidal activities and whom Camden had executed. Capt. Poynt seeks to bring these men to justice only to discover Camden is advising the US Secretary of Defense to take a hard-line against the Chinese Government. Poynt's revelations could derail Camden's agenda and mar his reputation thus Camden would rather destroy him and the journal than have it resurface in the press. Luckily Poynt acquires an ally in Communist agent Kim (Susie Park in the best portrayal of a female agent in tight black leather since Charlie's Angels), whose mission is to undermine and then assassinate Camden. Together the two fight to expose the evil plot which is rooted in anti-Asian prejudice.

    Makes me strongly suspect that these implications should be more thuroughly investigated & guarded against.

    ** (out of four) Antonio Sabato Jr stars as an Army Intelligence Officer who uncovers evidence while in Cambodia that high officials may be responsible for soldiers deaths. Routine and dull.
