* UnspokenPlanGuarantee / ImpossibleMissionCollapse: The team plans the raid to perfection (with the capacity to pull it off in a minute and a half of a maximum of three that Rhodes thinks they have before they are swamped with enemy reinforcements), it was supposed to be at night, and was supposed to be a blitzkrieg that would have them all gat out of there unharmed alongside the soldiers. Everything goes to hell the moment they put boots on Vietnamese ground because of the CIA, and although the plan works even with improvisation and old weapons... well, look up on BittersweetEnding for details.

* AuditThreat: Used on Mac Gregor. Failed epicly.

Added DiffLines:
* ObstructiveBureaucrat: Pretty much every higher-up that comes into contact with Rhodes. He is forced into retirement because he continues to pester the government about finding his son, and the team has to make do with WorldWarII-era equipment because the CIA tips off the Vietnamese government about the mission because they don't want the team to cause political trouble (although the CIA agent that informs them of this is sympathetic enough to allow the team to go and plead to them to go home, which allows them to go and purchase said weapons and continue the mission anyway).

* BreakOutTheMuseumPiece: The team started out with AR-15s and other modern weapons, which were promptly confiscated by local authorities upon arrival in SE Asia, thanks to the CIA. The solution? Find a shady black marketeer who's sitting on a pile of WWII-era M1 Garands, M1918 [=BARs=], and Tommy Guns, and is perfectly happy to give these old American guns back to the Americans, for the right price.

It is {{The Eighties}}, and Col. Jason Rhodes (Hackman), a [[TheKoreanWar Korean war]] veteran, is haunted by the loss of his son, Frank, who has been Missing In Action [[TheVietnamWar since 1972]]. After a [[AdultFear particularly disturbing]] [[BadDreams nightmare]], he decided to take action. He [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections petitions the government and all of his military contacts]] to no avail, eventually being [[ReluctantRetiree forceably retired for being a nuisance]]. What's a PapaWolf to do? Team up with the father of another MIA, now an oil magnate (Stack) for finances and recruit your son's former squadmates, drill them into a precise military unit with the help of a young Marine Kevin Scott (Swayze), and send them back to the war they've been trying to escape for the last 10 years.
