A lot of intense action with some stupid moments inserted

The U. S. fight against Islamic terrorism makes for an easy plot structure; they want to blow up Americans while the American commando teams try to stop them. It is also topical as Islamic terrorists are the current primary public exterior enemy. This story opens with a Navy SEAL team on the ground freeing a group of hostages. During the extrication they discover several crates of powerful Stinger anti-aircraft missiles. An attempt to destroy the missiles fails and the commander of the team makes the decision to leave rather than commit a heroic suicide.
Some of their superiors object to this action and the pressure increases when a Stinger is used to shoot down a civilian aircraft. In an intense effort to discover the location of the missiles, Lt. Curran, the SEAL team leader, begins a relationship with a female reporter with contacts in the Middle East. After learning of the location, the team goes into Beirut and must fight its way in and out of the city.
There is a lot of intense action, some humorous moments and some incredible stupidity committed by the Charlie Sheen character. In many ways he acts like the immature Charlie Sheen public persona rather than an efficient fighting man that is part of a small team of elite soldiers. In my opinion it would have been a better movie if that character had just been left out.
