Visitor Comments

Eunice Mahlanga: It is not too artificial.

Stan Immelman: Disappointing towards the end!

Gustave Truter: Another good performance by Travolta.

Magda Ferguson: Keeps you guessing till the end, but most certainly not a movie for sensitive viewers.

Leon Kemp: The only thing that was worth while, was the plot, but you could have read the book for that. The worst peformance John Travolta has pulled off in years...

Nuno Rosa: Very nice movie.

Guinevere Vos: The ending of this film is a real anti-climax. The casting was excellent but I walked away with a feeling that the US Army is in need of some serious therapy.

Bruce Humphrey: Great acting by John Travolta et al. Incredible how subtly people can ruin peoples lives with psychology!

Linda: Is this extreme? Surely, most would think this unbelievable, yet the ending text makes it appear that this story was based on an actual event. Was it?
