Overview
John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson star in this riveting multi-layered military suspense thriller from acclaimed action Director John McTiernan (Die Hard, The Hunt for Red October, Predator).

Fort Clayton, a U.S. army base on the edge of the Panama Canal. The previous day Hurricane Beth had hit the base and the outlying area at full force. At the time, an elite covert operations team led by Sgt. Nathan West (Samuel L. Jackson) was in the jungle on what appeared to be a routine training exercise. By the time the storm passes, the sergeant and several of his Rangers are missing. Of the two recruits who are rescued, both tell a different story of what transpired. But it soon becomes clear that this was no ordinary training mission and that a major cover-up is underway. What happened to West, and his Ranger team? And what were they really doing out there in the jungle? Tom Hardy (John Travolta), an ex-Army Ranger turned DEA agent, is drawn into this ever-widening mystery disappearance of the feared and often hated Sgt. Nathan West (Jackson), as well as several of his elite Special Forces trainees. As the story unfolds, each layer reveals more lies and greater deceptions, until Hardy (Travolta) and Osborne (Connie Nielsen) inch towards the horrible truth about the fate of the missing soldiers.
