Staff Sergeant William James:
I want my five bucks back, buddy.
Beckham: Five dollars for what, man? You crazy now?
Staff Sergeant William James: Yeah. The DVD you sold me was crap.
Beckham: You crazy, man. That's impossible. It's Hollywood special effects.

The bombs pictured would not have to be "disarmed" as portrayed. The military munitions were fused with primer cord. Simply cutting the primer cord would have isolated the bomb from the electrical cap ignition circuit, thereby making it inert. Primer cord explodes but with the force of a M-40 firecracker, not high explosive force. Primacord is, in fact, a high explosive that explodes at a velocity much greater than a firecracker, approx 23,000 fps.
There are no opening credits, not even a title.
