| Great movie, keeps you glued to the screen until the very end
It started out just like any other so called thriller, but in a very short time it was proved to me that it isn't so. It is a superb movie. I rarely see anything like it. In a nutshell, a few FBI profiler trainees are taking part in an exercise and they are completely isolated. Nowhere to run, nobody to call, trapped in a way. The so called exercise soon turns to be deadly, in a way that surprised even me. I guarantee that you will not see that coming. And that is just the start. Soon the trainees realize that the killer is one of they're own and all hells break lose. Do not place bets on who the killer is, I did and I lost. It is a juicy movie, so do enjoy. You will not see anything like it for a very long time.

Alternate Versions

Certain international DVD distributors included deleted scenes not seen in the original theatrical release, which provides more character development and makes the film more complete. There are numerous sequences and the major ones are noted as follows:

  • "Sara's Regret" - This scene expanded upon how vulnerable Sara Moore (played by Kathryn Morris) was. The FBI agent's character is developed further. The setting has the agent behind a desk after cracking under the pressure of an intense field assignment. The scene is introspective in nature.
  • "The Instructor's Office" - The scene is set in the FBI instructor's office for the character Jake Harris played by Val Kilmer. Harris speaks with Sara played by Kathryn Morris and J.D. Reston played by Christian Slater. The verbal communication between Harris and J.D. is professional and almost military in nature, but it is clear that Harris has doubts related to Sara's performance. The performance review is completed and in the process a caustic exchange transpires in which Harris directly questions her ability. This establishes Sara's potential motive.
  • "Ride Along" - In a scene on the helicopter pad at the FBI training complex, Gabe Jensen played by LL Cool J and Jake Harris played by Val Kilmer speak in a caustic capacity before any of the agents arrive. Harris is ordered by his superiors to allow Gabe Jensen to observe his class and teaching methods. In this exchange Harris and Jensen makes their feelings plainly clear. This established a potential motive for both Jensen and Harris.
  • "Rappelling" - In a brief scene in the film personnel are seen rappelling out of a helicopter and securing a hot landing zone during a training exercise. This scene set the stage for later in the film when Harris tells his class to get their rappelling lines out of the back of the helicopter when nearing Oniega. The joke then seems more intense and relevant.
  • "The ending" - Several variations of the ending were filmed. One of them included Jake Harris (Val Kilmer) and numerous others included modified character development from the final theatrical ending.
