This movie was jam packed with suspence and drama. The story line was perfect and the layout couldn't have been better.

JOHN TRAVOLTA KEEPS YOU ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT IN BASIC. YOUR MIND KEEPS CHANGING THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE MOVIE ''IS A GOOD GUY OR A BAD GUY''. YOU WON'T KNOW THE REAL ANSWER UNTIL THE END. THIS IS A GREAT MILITARY MOVIE. ONE OF THE BEST I THINK.

Wow. After this movie was over... I just laughed. I couldn't stop. The ending was just so absurd that I couldn't even wrap my head around it. This is hands down one of the best movies I have ever seen. See it.
