The guy's a real Marine, dad. I mean, if they can do this to him, just hang him out to dry, they... they can do it to anybody. Forget that he's my friend, they can do it to anybody. And that means, that YOUR medals and YOUR citations won't mean jack shit when they come after you.

Some international prints, made for DVD/TV broadcast, have removed the Paramount logo and fade straight into the Seven Arts Pictures logo. The opening titles also now read "Seven Arts Pictures Present in association with Paramount Pictures". This is due to the fact that Seven Arts owned the international rights and wanted prime credit.

Performances were good yet inconsequential. My biggest problem with the film was the (REALLY FLAT) ending, which tacked on "what happened to them" titles.
THE PROBLEM IS: THE STORY ISN'T TRUE.
What was the point of having "what happened to..." this character or that character if these characters weren't real to begin with? I went to check to see if the story was true (which would have made me forgive the lead balloon ending) but surprise, it was all made up!
Good performances give it one star, and the siege on the embassy WAS a well done action sequence, giving it another star.
