About the Movie
Academy Award® nominees John Travolta (Best Actor in a Leading Role, Pulp Fiction, 1994) and Samuel L. Jackson (Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Pulp Fiction, 1994) team up with action director John McTiernan (Die Hard, The Hunt for Red October, Predator) in a white-knuckle "thrill ride with a twist you won't believe!" (MairiAnna Bachynsky, ATV/CTV Entertainment) Also starring Connie Nielsen (The Hunted, Gladiator), Giovanni Ribisi (Gone in Sixty Seconds), Brian Van Holt (Black Hawk Down), Taye Diggs (Chicago) and Roselyn Sanchez (Rush Hour 2). A DEA officer (Travolta) is recruited to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a famed U.S. Army drill instructor (Jackson) and a group of cadets on a routine military exercise in the jungles of Panama. But the journey to uncover the truth leads to some dangerous and unexpected places when two rescued survivors tell dramatically different versions of what transpired. "Totally mesmerizing." (Lisa Petrillo, WFOR/CBS (Miami)/Extra)

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Made up of remnants from other, better films.
Rotten: Nothing is as it appears, except the fact that nothing is as it appears.
Rotten: The plot twists, reversals, false accounts, unreliable narrators and conflicting testimonies that make up the story of Basic are just not worth revisiting, unless one wants to tie one's brain into a knot for no discernible reward.
Rotten: It's neither deep and interesting enough to be a brainteaser nor sufficiently thrilling to count as a mindless diversion.
I love Basic
