Plot Outline:

Lieutenant Colonel Nathaniel Serling is investigating the case of Captain Karen Walden, and helicopter pilot and the first woman who would be awarded the Medal of Honor. Conflicting reports from survivors of a crash in which she saved the crew shed doubt in Serling's mind as he wrestles with his own conscience. -- Chris Kavan

Decent wartime drama as Denzel Washington invetigates the death of helicopter pilot Meg Ryan. An interesting story told in retrospect from differing perspectives despite the unpromising cast.

I didn't really buy Meg Ryan as a tough Captain but the rest of the cast was great. A good, disturbing drama.

This is not an earth-shattering war film, but the way it portrays events, including inventive use of flashbacks, weaves a great story. It plays the familiar "truth is subjective" card, but the performances make it seem new again.
