Quotes

Peter Bradford: Damn, I'm so tired of this "I'm an American" bull! Where was all that patriotism when it counted? Where was that willingness to sacrifice? Nobody wanted to join the damn army to defend the country unless they got paid well! Nobody wanted to give any time to public service unless they could make a career out of it! And I didn't notice a lot of us giving up our lives in the last 10 years!

FANTASTIC Mini-series!
14 April 2000 | by surfercharlieSee all my reviews

After 13 years, it's hard to remember the details of this movie. I remember liking it very much which surprised me because I am not a Kristofferson fan, and I was determined to criticize the movie from the first moment I started watching it. Instead I planned 6 nights of my life around it because it was so good I couldn't stop watching it. I thought about it while at work, and was depressed when it ended. I would very much like to see it again, and was shocked when I went to buy the video and learned it has never been released on video. WHY ISN'T THIS MOVIE AVAILABLE???

The acting is great. The story is fantastic and very believable. All the elements of a great story are present (suspense, climax, character development, etc.). This movie needs to be put on video so more people can see it!
