A solid war film with strong performances by Meg Ryan and Denzel Washington.

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.
