A team of commandos on a mission in a Central American jungle find themselves hunted by an extraterrestrial warrior.
The studio would not allow John McTiernan to shoot this film in anamorphic widescreen, due to the complexities of the optical effects. As a sly sort of retaliation, he added an anamorphic version of the film's opening 20th Century Fox logo, which looks noticeably stretched on-screen.
Major General Phillips:
You're looking good, Dutch.
Dutch: It's been a long time, General.
Major General Phillips: Come on inside.
Right after Dutch gives the plan for attacking the rebel camp, Blaine and Mac walk off screen to the left. Blaine is carrying the mini-gun ready to use it. In the next shot the mini-gun is shouldered and his M16 is being carried.
All the 7 main cast members re-appear in ascending order as their names are displayed to give a smile to the audience in appreciation.
In the 3D re-release the old 20th Century Fox logo is replaced with the new 20th Century Fox logo that was used in Turbo (2013).
