Synopsis: Tough guy Thomas Beckett is a US Marine working in the Panamanian jungle. His job is to seek out rebels and remove them using his sniper skills. Beckett is notorious for losing his partners on such missions. This time he's accompanied by crack marksman Richard Miller, who's more of an office-type. Together they plan to seek out an important rebel leader, whilst avoiding a rogue marksman who frequents this part of the jungle.

- He's coming with full plans.

- A civilian?

Just hold on.

Take a look.

The army shooting team

plucked this guy right out of ROTC.

He took a silver in the '88 Olympics.

After his discharge the N.S.C. assigned

him to a Washington D.C. SWAT team.

lt's all in there.

Take a look.

Has he ever been in a jungle?

Does he speak any Spanish?

This is not a matter of choice.

Just trust me.

Anybody the N.S.C. sends down here

is gonna be fully qualified.

Hey, yo!

What do you got in there anyway?

A bassoon.

With the Marine Corps band, right?


New Psy-ops strategy. We're gonna

charm the rebels, like snakes.

Whip a charm on this!

Shit, Ripoly! Whip a charm!

Hey, take a swig.

lt'll burn through that frost you got.

Give me your battle dressing!

Jesus Christ!

We got wounded!

Jesus Christ!

Baker, stand by!

We're hit!

Where is he? Anyone got a visual?

There he is! Get him!

- He's on your side! Get him!

- You're gonna get us all killed!

For Christ's sake! Take it down !

- He's shooting at us!

- Use your fucking weapons!

What the-

We're gonna die!

Oh, God! We're gonna die!

Kill him!

Get us out of here!

Come on ! Shoot him!

Hit him! Come on ! Go!

Come on !

Jesus Christ! You got him

with a sniper rifle!


- How about a game?

- l got a game.

- Can l get a beer?

- Coming up.

So you're going down south

towards the border.

l'm not at liberty

to discuss my mission.

How do you feel

about hanging on a charm bracelet?

Come again?

You better take a good look

at Master Beckett's dog tag collection.

Got any money?

Yeah. l'll play for money.

l said l already got a game.

l'm talking about holding on

to your cash...

while you're out in the jungle.

Better do it.

Those rebels can fund a whole offensive

on what they take off you.
