Story


Six soldiers went out. Two came back. What happened to the military's most elite commandos?

In their first on-screen reunion since their Oscar®-nominated performances in Pulp Fiction, John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson co-star in the white knuckle thriller Basic.

When a legendary commander (Samuel L. Jackson) and several of his men turn up missing, the last thing the government wants is a rogue DEA agent (John Travolta) investigating the disappearance. As the investigation unfolds, the agent is placed in direct conflict with the Army's official investigating officer (Connie Nielsen) and nothing is as it seems.

“..this is a bad film that tries to confuse you into thinking it's good..”
by [E! Online]
“..is a confusing, shoddy, and lame conspiracy thriller..”
by Aaron Lazenby [Filmcritic]
