The movie that should have made D.B. Sweeney a star


But almost 20 years later, he's still an unknown with most movie fans. Should have made it up there with Charlie Sheen, Rob Lowe, John Cusack, and the likes

a bit of trivia--he was in an Army recruiting commercial (a real one) that was shown on TV almost concurrent with the release of this film...

I disagree completely, I thought he was horrible in this movie. At not one single point did I think he was the character or like his presence.

I've always liked DB Sweeny as an actor, but the truth is that he's pretty middle of the road in capability.

Here, he was cringingly bad. Neither he nor his character could pull off being a sergeant, let alone a commissioned officer. His maturity-level was barely that of a private, let alone of a rank of someone leading other men in combat.
