Richard Marcinko describes his life as a combat soldier with the fearless tone of a commanding officer. His boldness helps reveal that he will stop at nothing to achieve his objectives. However, much of the excitement of his daring operations in the Navy's first anti-terrorist unit is lost since there's no emotion in his voice when recounting the stories. There's a noticeable starched quality to the narration as if Marcinko were standing at attention while delivering the text. His failure to step out of his role as military commander and take on the role of storyteller contributes to the lack of firepower in this program.
