The General's Daughter
The General's Daughter is the 1999 feature film adaptation of the novel of the same name by Nelson DeMille. William Goldman (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,Marathon Man, All the President's Men, Misery)wrote the adaptation. The film stars John Travolta as a Chief Warrant Officer / CID Agent with the United States Army's Criminal Investigation Division Command (USACIDC) who is assigned to a murder case that involves the daughter of a highly respected US Army General. The film was directed by Simon West, and the cast includes Madeleine Stowe, Timothy Hutton, James Woods, and James Cromwell.
The following weapons were used in the film The General's Daughter:
Chief Warrant Officer Four Paul Brenner (John Travolta) uses a Beretta 92FS when working undercover as Sgt. Frank White. Other Army personnel also carry the Beretta (in lieu of the Army issue Beretta M9) including Colonel William Kent (Timothy Hutton).
The Beretta is illuminated by lightning.

Rifles & Carbines
The rifles seen in the hands of the US Army soldiers in the film are M16A2 rifles. Belling (Peter Weireter) is seen looking one over before buying it. Cadets on a training exercise also carry the rifle. Upon close inspection, most of the M16A2s in the movie are actually Olympic Arms K4B copies.

Belling checks the M16A2. Before getting into acting, Peter Weireter
was a member of LAPD SWAT and a hostage negotiator (which explains the perfect weapons handling and trigger discipline).

Belling (Peter Weireter) uses a suppressed Mini Uzi in an attempt on Brenner's life. While Weireter is an experienced SWAT officer, there is a strong possibility that he closed his eyes to protect himself from the pyrotechnic charges.
