Revealing mistake: Near the beginning, after a couple of small earthquakes, Fred comes flying out of the dam elevator shaft with a whole heap of water, dead from drowning. But you can see him lift his head out of the water seconds before his friend turns him over and finds him definitely dead.

Question: What was the point of the crazy soldier who shoots the black thieves and later gets shot dead by George Kennedy? Why was he so nutty, and quite frankly what purpose did he even serve in the film?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Before he put the uniform on, he was a complete nobody, having the respect of no-one. Now that he's in uniform, he demands that people should respect him, and coupled with the powers of Martial Law (where looters can be shot on sight), takes the lack of respect too far and shoots them.
