Sad part in movie


When the Black Veteran was wounded asking people for help and people just dismissed him as another bum. After seeing that people didn't view him as a man, he accepted his fate and was killed.

I know this movie wasn't the best in the world plot wise but that scene was pretty powerful.

Whats the point of a signature?

I thought he had an even more powerful scene earlier, when he's going through the selection process, and he's asked about next of kin and family members, and he is made to repeat that he has no one and there's no one left in his family, etc, and you can see he's fighting back sadness with a fake smile. Tragic character, and more emotion than you'd expect in a Van Damme action film from the 90's.

The black people in this movie suffer the worst. There's the black detective who has no-one to celebrate her birthday with and later gets killed.

The actress, Kasi Lemmons, had appeared in a 1988 episode of The Equalizer (Day of the Covenant) where one of the characters refers to a police station as a hard target: "I think that a police station is considered a hard target in wartime."

It's unexpected but pretty effective.
