What's the point of reteaming Pulp Fiction's John Travolta and Samuel L Jackson if they're only going to share a single scene together? That's just one of the questions you'll be asking after watching John McTiernan's muddled military thriller. You might also wonder exactly what attracted the Die Hard helmer to such a convoluted whodunnit, in which DEA agent Travolta's quest to discover who killed Jackson's hard-ass drill sergeant is complicated by a welter of contradictory flashbacks. A wasted opportunity? Perhaps. A waste of time? You betcha.
