Basic is a movie that is definitely not what it appears to be. This movie will have your head spinning and will keep you guessing even up until the end. It has an all-star cast including John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, and Giovanni Ribisi. While a group of six soldiers are practicing a drill in the jungle, a storm hits and in a strange turn of events, only a barrage of bullets can heard leading to only two soldiers alive. Their commanding officer West (Jackson) has disappeared and the only two survivors don't have coinciding stories. With the help of Investigator Osborne (Connie Nielson), DEA Agent Hardy (Travolta) begins trying to piece together the actual events of that night leading to the death and disappearance of the soldiers and their leader. As Hardy continues the investigation, the entire operation and Military leaders aren't exactly what they appear to be and the missing West may not be missing after all.
