John Travolta & Samuel L Jackson Interview

John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson talk exclusively about their roles in Basic and the story. The footage also contains two exclusive film clips of the two in action.

There is always the possibility of two truths. The truth we see. And what’s behind it.

One appears to be reality. The other is reality.

From acclaimed action-director John McTiernan (Die Hard, The Hunt for Red October, Predator) and screenwriter James Vanderbilt comes Basic, a riveting, multi-layered military suspense thriller. Joining John Travolta, Connie Nielsen and Samuel L. Jackson is an ensemble of some of today’s most compelling young actors including Giovanni Ribisi, Brian Van Holt, Taye Diggs, Cristian De La Fuente, Dash Mihok and Roselyn Sanchez.

Travolta stars as Tom Hardy, an ex-Army Ranger turned DEA agent, who is drawn into an ever-widening mystery surrounding the disappearance of the feared and often hated Sgt. Nathan West (Jackson), as well as several of his elite Special Forces trainees on what appears, at first, to have been a routine military exercise during a hurricane in the jungles of Panama.

Only two survivors are found, Dunbar (Brian Van Holt), and a badly wounded Kendall (Giovanni Ribisi), the son of a high-profile Joint Chiefs of Staff official. Neither is willing to cooperate with the head of Fort Clayton’s military police, Capt. Julia Osborne (Connie Nielsen). So base commander Col. Bill Styles (Tim Daly) calls in ex-Ranger Hardy, an old friend and a persuasive interrogator.

Osborne disapproves of Hardy who is on leave from the D.E.A. after having come under suspicion of accepting bribes from local drug traffickers. She is also uneasy when she learns that Hardy once trained under West and hates him almost as passionately as his current recruits.

With time running out, Hardy and Osborne call a temporary, if uneasy, truce. Hardy cajoles a confession out of Dunbar, who claims that Sgt. West and the missing Rangers have been murdered and their bodies blown away by the hurricane.

When they later interview Kendall, he confirms that the other Rangers and West are dead. But, in almost every other way, his story contradicts Dunbar’s.

What happened to West and his Ranger team? And what were they really doing out there in the jungle?

As the story unfolds, each layer reveals more lies and greater deceptions, until Hardy and Osborne inch towards the horrible truth about the fate of the missing soldiers.
