A U.S. Army officer, despondent about a deadly mistake he made, investigates a female chopper commander's worthiness for the Medal of Honor.
In the scene where Sterling is packing to begin his trip to investigate the Medal of Honor, there is a picture on the bedroom wall of the Watts Towers in Los Angels, CA. These towers were also the stage for the final climactic scene of another Denzel Washington movie, Ricochet (1991).
Tony Gartner, Washington Post:
Sweet Jesus, there's always a tape.
The first crashed helicopter is always referred to as a "Black Hawk", which is the Sikorsky UH-60 utility helicopter. But the helicopter shown in the film was a Huey, like Walden's. In fact, it also had a red cross on the door, meaning it must have been a medevac helicopter, which makes no sense for a refuel unit.
