Storyline

Two fighter pilots (Devane and Bostwick) who flew together in Vietnam are assigned to the elite Air Force Fighter Weapons School (known as "Red Flag") at Nellis AFB, Nevada about a decade after the war. Brash, self-confident Devane is an instructor, while quieter, family man Bostwick is the student. At first, the two men resume their friendship. But as the student starts to show the master a thing or two, tensions develop. Can their relationship survive the stresses of one of the military's top schools? Written by John A. Barnes

Beware ! ... fans of William Devane .........................
7 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With William Devane prominently displayed as top billing on the DVD cover, one would like to have seen a lot more of him in "Red Flag". Unfortunately, even though he has a pivotal role, his screen time is not great. Speaking of not great, one would wrongly assume that this was a flying movie, while in reality it seems more like a "chick flick" masquerading as a war games film. There is way too much emotional hand holding compared to action sequences. The simulated dogfights take a back seat and the entire movie grinds to a halt every time females appear on the screen. I cannot recommend "Red Flag" as a William Devane vehicle, nor as an action film. - MERK
