Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

James Woods, a master at repressed emotion, is generally careful to keep his intensity in check and his performances within the bounds of the believable. Here, as a US Navy pilot who is being held and tortured by the Vietnamese, he adds to his list of such expressive roles, yet is ill-served by Paul Aaron, whose direction is alternately long-winded and flat.
