Deception is their most dangerous weapon

Academy Award nominees John Travolta (Best Actor, Pulp Fiction) and Samuel L. Jackson (Best Supporting Actor, Pulp Fiction) team up with action director John McTiernan (Die Hard, The Hunt for Red October, Predator) in a white-knuckle "thrill-ride with a twist you won't believe!" - (MairiAnna Bachynsky, ATV/CTV Entertainment). Also starring Connie Nielsen (The Hunted, Gladiator), Giovanni Ribisi (Gone In Sixty Seconds), Brian Van Holt (Black Hawk down), Taye Diggs (Chicago) and Roselyn Sanchez (Rush Hour 2).

A DEA officer (Travolta) is recruited to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a famed U.S. Army drill instructor (Jackson) and a group of cadets on a routine military exercise in the jungles of Panama. But the journey to uncover the truth leads to some dangerous and unexpected places when two rescued survivors tell dramatically different versions of what transpired.
