Trivia

In the romantic silhouette scene between Commander Hunter and Major Zara, actor Barry Bostwick deployed his right hand to briefly cast a shadow which resembled his genitals in profile. Asked at the time, he claimed it was accidental. However, when interviewed by Sight and Sound, the magazine of the British Film Institute, in 2004, he admitted that it had been an intentional slight towards Director Hal Needham, with whom he was involved in an unprofitable Ponzi scheme.

Goofs

While they are leaving for the mission we see Hunter walking through the hanger with Gen Byrne-White to get to his plane when he's stopped by Egg. In this scene Hunter's helmet is attached to a hook on his right hip and he has some sort of equipment attached to a strap running down his left thigh. When the scene changes to Hunter walking outside his is now carrying his helmet in his left hand and the thigh extensions that he had in the previous scene are now gone all together. In the ending to this scene when Zara kisses Hunter both the thigh straps and helmet are gone. See more »

Quotes

Byrne-White: What's your rank?
Dallas: Rank? Why ain't nobody got a rank in Megaforce. 'Cept the Commander, but we all call him Hunter.

My first awful film experience

I remember this film, because its the first film I ever walked out of. And for this-then action film-obsessed 14-year old, for a film to be so utterly bad that he felt his lack of intelligence being insulted, well that was like a 2 year old telling his mother that the Teletubbies were stupid. I remember when I was first getting into movies, and I would keep a log of what films I saw, when I saw em, and what I rated em (I think I used a scale of 1-to-10), I recall this one getting my first ZERO. More recently I am pleased to find that when I ask others about the film that most people have never heard of it. A few months ago I saw it late night on cable and finally saw the film's ending, and I must say that is as that two year old would say, "stupid". Utterly, embarrassingly, mind-boggingly stupid.
