Basicis a 2003 American/German thriller film directed by John McTiernan and starring John Travolta , Connie Nielsen and Samuel L. Jackson .

A helicopter circles over the Panamanian jungle. On board is a team of Army Ranger trainees and their instructor, Master Sergeant Nathan West ( Samuel L. Jackson ). Their objective is to move through the jungle while a hurricane rages above, using live fire to hit pop-up metal targets, then rendezvous at a small bunker.

Seventeen hours later, a Ranger (eventually identified as Ray Dunbar), emerges from the jungle carrying one of his wounded comrades, Second Lieutenant Levi Kendall, on his back. Another soldier then walks out of the jungle and starts shooting at Dunbar. This soldier, later identified as Mueller, is killed in self-defense by Dunbar. Apparently, the mission has gone horribly wrong. The rest of the team, and West, are presumed dead.

In an interrogation room back on base, Captain Julia Osborne ( Connie Nielsen ) makes little headway with Dunbar, who refuses to talk. Dunbar is given a pad of paper and pen and he writes that he will only speak to a fellow Ranger, someone from outside the base, and draws an "8" inside a circle on the piece of paper. Noticeably spooked upon seeing the "8", base commander, Colonel Bill Styles ( Timothy Daly ), calls in an experienced interrogator and friend, Tom Hardy ( John Travolta ). Hardy, an ex-Ranger is now a DEA agent who is presently under investigation for suspicion of bribery. Hardy and Osborne, initially wary of each other, are forced to work together during the 6 hours they are given before the CID transportation from Washington will arrive to take Dunbar and Kendall away to initiate an investigation. Styles wants the investigation kept quiet.
