Armageddon (1998) (part 5 of 13)

Scary General is less than happy with Harry’s team. He tells Truman, “If you’re trying to make me feel better about the scenario, give it up!”

Billy Bob is encouraged, noting that Chick was an Air Force commando for seven years. Scary General takes a different approach, reading off a list of the team’s crimes. “Robbery, assault, resisting arrest!” He mentions one is a collector for the mob, and a few of the team have done “serious time”.
