      laurie s You don't get this level of indiscipline in the British Special Forces, the selectees all stick together instead of childish infighting. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a very OK and even gritty film that not many people know about. You had to watch Sinemax late at night to see it, but so what what's your TV for anyway? Any film with babe-o-delicious Lisa Eichhorn is worth staying up for... Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member The training turns deadly here and the enemy is closer than you think. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review kirby p Not a bad movie, actually. One interesting bit of trivia: In this 1986 movie, Lisa Eichhorn's character gets waterboarded -- long before most of us had ever heard of waterboarding. They depicted it accurately, too. In fact, I think Eichhorn may really have been briefly waterboarded for the filming. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member this movie was really shitty. and really 80s. i was surprised to see another SERE school depicting film, but not surprised after the opening 10 minutes that i would not be impressed or entertained.
