Worth watching? It's on A&E in a few minutes.

not worth watching on A&E , they cut out all the good parts

Hell no. It is so full of bullshit, it's an insult to real SEALs.

Good double feature with S.W.A.T.

Not unless you enjoy really bad 'B' movies.

I love how Charlie Schene shoots the SD3 :)

You guys are crazy! Navy Seal is so tactical!
Link Posted: 9/4/2004 11:51:35 AM EST
Well if you are of the mindset of " I saw them Navy Seals do it in a movie once! So it must be real" type then yea go for it ! I remember when that movie came out and laughing with the Seals we were deployed with about the "Thermal imaging scope" that Bill Paxton had on his fifty. Of course now adays it's like "Oh, you don't have one?" Other than that , typical Hollywood crap! I don't think it even made it into the "Favorite movie shoot out" post I put up earlier. Take care.

It's a decent shooter. Just don't put too much stock in it's authenticity.

Charlie Sheen, for one, would never have survived. His own men would have either killed him or had him kicked off the teams. Probably both.

Not bad. It's better than Chuck's Delta Force movie.

STILL better than Delta Force, because it made no pretense about being even remotely realistic.
Link Posted: 9/4/2004 12:21:41 PM EST
I recall it as the first movie where I heard the empty brass hit the floor.
Link Posted: 9/4/2004 1:58:34 PM EST
There's always a guy who has "trained with" or was "deployed with" Navy SEALS. Always.
Link Posted: 9/4/2004 2:06:24 PM EST
What do you mean unrealistic, the planning process in the movies is the same one the real SEALs use!


Link Posted: 9/4/2004 2:09:26 PM EST
Pathetically pathetic movie.

Hey, give Topper a break guys!

It seriously sucks ass dude...right up there with Firebirds and SWAT
Link Posted: 9/4/2004 2:21:03 PM EST
I think it's actually a better movie than you guys give credit for being.

Sure, it's a sappy 80's charlie sheen flick.

But it shows some good things too

Not ALL SEALS live thru EVERY mission.

It addresses the real situation of the middle east in the period

The gun play is actually pretty good, though still play

the scene where Charlie Sheen shoots the bad guy, then quotes Han Solo

"Boring party anyways, Leader, we're gonna have company!"


The kill house is realistic.
Link Posted: 9/4/2004 2:23:10 PM EST
To be more realistic they should have the SEALS get lost a couple of times on the way to their objective.

I love the part when the pagers start going off at the wedding.

I wish that would have happened to me at mine.
Link Posted: 9/4/2004 4:51:30 PM EST
Actually not THAT bad of a movie. Its worth watching if you don't have anything else going on. Now I do not remember the name of it, but Rob Lowe was in a movie where he was a SEAL, and that was possibly one of the worst movies ever........

i just watch it for the barret action

God here....

Ya, then you could waste 4 hours of your life instead of 2.

Iron Eagle I and II were also bad.

It's not THAT bad. I thought it was pretty cool. Sure it was off on a few things, but it's a movie (and an 80's movie at that!). It is supposed to be sorta over the top. It was one of the first movies to really get me interested in guns as a kid. And yes like Combat Jack said, according to the Internet Movie Database, it was written by a former member of SEAL Team Four and six.

At least IE I was entertaining and had good music. IEII sucked according to ANY standard you might choose.

I always liked the propane gas flames coming out of the APC muzzles...
