Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the film, Tom Skerritt is on the same aircraft carrier as the fighter jets, but right after the jets bomb the enemy soldiers, Tom Skerritt arrives in a helicopter. There is no way that a helicopter is just as fast as an F-18 fighter jet. (01:44:25)
Factual error: During the movie Tom Skerritt is seen talking to the SEAL team from the carrier's flight deck. That's impossible; command & control operations are being performed from the inside of the ship. Besides, roar on the flight deck would be so loud making it impossible to hear each other.
Trivia: In the beginning of the movie there are several clips including a clip with a black man wearing white shorts being shot. This is an actual clip of a man being killed in Sierra Leone. The clip of the black boy being beaten is also authentic. (00:01:25)

Kelly Lake: The first name of the character of Johnny Messner, Kelly, means 'warrior' in Gaelic.
