ACTING: Theresa Randle was completely unbelievable as a military chopper pilot, and Rutger Hauer was equally unbelievable as a Marine general. Both lacked emotion and urgency in their portrayals, while Randle's character was flat (at least figuratively) and a whimp, Hauer's was dumpy and, well, also a whimp (I can not imagine that any self-respecting Marine would appreciate this movie). The acting of most of the secondary characters, including most of those portraying the terrorists was also lame and un-noteworthy.
TECHNICAL: The film was clearly shot with quality equipment, while many of the sound effects were as poor as the acting. In fact, at some points sound effects were left out, like when Capt. Jennings (Randle) karate kicks one of the terrorist guards, the sound of the kick is non-existent. The film avoids showing graphic violence, but does so in such a way that makes the movie appear to be simply budget.
STORY: The story is weak, with many things happening without apparent motivation, reason, or even any degree of retro-explanation. If you pick up this DVD and read the back ccover, you will know as much about the movie as if you'd wasted the entire 91 minutes watching the disc.
Well, except you might still think Randle and Hauer are decent actors...
Seriously though, resist the slick and compelling packaging, and hunt for anything else besides Eagle One!
Don't waste your time or money.
