Two government agents investigate a routine military training exercise in Panama that went horrifically wrong and left most of the platoon dead and their leader missing. To throw light on the matter, they interrogate the only two survivors - but their widely conflicting stories only lead to a dark seam of deep-seated corruption and deception. Thriller, starring John Travolta, Samuel L Jackson, Giovanni Ribisi and Connie Nielsen.
