Routine war story
15 November 2001 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Uninspired formula piece in which a US fighter pilot proves what he's made of after being shot down behind enemy lines. If you suspend judgment, all the ingredients are there for a good 90 minutes of escapism – danger, romance, adventure, fighter planes, guns and incompetent enemy soldiers. And there's some aerial filming of actual fighter planes of the period in action. But you'll have to ignore the low budget production, wooden acting and unconvincing plot developments. This movie also contains the most unflattering romantic compliment I've ever heard addressed to a woman on screen: `You look older than your age'!
