Trivia: R.Lee Ermey gives a great performance as "Sgt Hiles" in this film. He has played similar "over the top military characters", such as, in the TV series "Space, Above & Beyond" and other movies and TV shows. One reason he is so effective in these roles is his personal history as a real Staff Sergeant, and later a Gunnery Sergeant in the Marine Corps.
