* BlastOut: The finale.



* {{Homage}}: The film is basically Creator/WalterHill's tribute to Creator/SamPeckinpah, whom he had worked alongside with before making this film. More specifically, the film is one to Peckinpah's ''Film/TheWildBunch'', especially in the final gunbattle.



-->''Iíve served our country for twenty years. Done every dirty job ever asked of me. Iíve been places and done things I just donít think people should have to do. There are no heros, Larry. You and me, weíre just numbers on a bureaucratís desk...You stupid asshole, when are you going to wake up and take a look around you? They donít care. Another couple of missions and youíll be just like me!''

Creator/WalterHill's 1987 homage to Creator/SamPeckinpah movies in general (and TheWildBunch in particular). Texas Ranger Jack Benteen (Creator/NickNolte) is struggling to stem the tide of illegal drugs in his Texas bordertown. Making his job even more difficult, his former childhood friend Cash Bailey (Creator/PowersBoothe) is now a major drug kingpin, his girlfriend Sarita (Maria Conchita Alonso) still has feelings for Bailey, and a team of [[BadassCrew black ops commandos]] (Creator/MichaelIronside, Creator/ClancyBrown, William Forsythe, to name but a few) keep getting underfoot.
