Dear Nikki,
went through the first 10, then jumped fast to the end.
First and foremost, check your script formatting. Download a free software, and do this properly. Scene headers is the number one missing there.
Why so many capitals?
Long chunks of action and dialogue. Regarding the first, rule of thumb is 3 lines at most.
First time introduced, characters' names should be in capitals.
Your action style looks to me extremely dull/colorless; no emotion, no feelings, no description of the surroundings, etc.

Just read the first page, and ran across something that I do quite a lot in dialogue. Here's a quick exchange:

MIKE BURNET - I'll give it a few more minutes then we're going in.

RED CAHILL - Just relax. They know what they're doing. If something is wrong they will let us know. Let's wait it out. It is their bust after all.

In my first drafts, for some reason, I end up with dialogue like Red's. He is essentially saying "Let's wait" five times in a row but in slightly different ways. I don't know how others feel, but I think if you chose the best of those five sentences, the script would move a lot quicker, Red's response would feel cooler, and it would leave a bit of mystery for the reader.
