Shooting an MP5K in the Kill House The commander of a team of the elite Navy SEALs discovers that a fanatical Arab terrorist is holding American stinger missiles. After a Pentagon debriefing, Charlie Sheen is ordered to retrieve the missiles and to stop the terrorist leader who knows his secret is out.

This movie is surely not a class A movie and acting is rather abysmal. At times, the lines and quotes are rather cheesy and the bad guys are a little too orchestrated. However, what the movie lacks in sophistication and intellectual fulfillment is made up for by the great shoot-out sequences.

A fun sequence is where Sheen practices quick-drawing his Beretta in front of the mirror...which admittedly might be something a lot of airsoft enthusiasts have done themselves on numerous occasions! ;-)

Undercover work with the AK47 The beginning sequence sees Charlie and his team drop into a terroist compound to save captured soldiers. Deft use of MP5 SD's and a sniper called "God" brandishing a Barrett 50 Caliber really makes you want to run into the next room to grab your own weapon.

The final scene is also a blast to watch as the Seal team brandish AK47s' and pose as locals to infiltrate enemy territory. A must watch for any airsoft enthusiast but only watch it for what it is - a pure action flick.
