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.
