Trivia:
The film stars actual, active-duty US Navy SEALs and SWCC. According to conditions set by the U.S. Government, their real names and identity are not revealed.

The Army, Navy/Marines and Air Force ROTC units at the University of Illinois were given an advanced screening of the film along with a directors' commentary at the beginning.

The crew filmed at Navy training sites to provide realistic settings, such as a drug cartel base, a terrorist camp on an isolated island, and a smuggler's yacht.

Due to the SEALs deployment cycles principal photography of the film took two and half years.

In certain key scenes real ammunition was used during filming to get the realistic effect.

Some the scenes depicted are based on real events, such as the SEAL at the end shot over a dozen times and surviving, the SEAL getting shot in the eye, the rescuing of the CIA agent and other various scenes.
