Trivia

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

Dallas: Well, I know how you feel, and I've been there myself. Let me see. One time before I made a jump into the night, an old buddy of mine told me something that made me feel a whole lot better.
Ace Hunter: What, what did he tell you to do?
Dallas: Well, he said, "You love 'em in blue and you love them in red. But most of all you love them in blue."
Ace Hunter: That's totally inapplicable to anything that's going on here. And it's _dumb_. Who told you that?
Dallas: You did!
Ace Hunter: But it's very wise. Very wise.

Delicious piece of cheese
17 June 2004 | by (Southern California) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of my favorite guilty pleasures. I was an 11 tomboy when it came out and lapped it up. The story's cheesy, the acting way over the top and Introvision left a lot to be desired as an effect process, but still it was fun. Barry Bostwick was a hottie in this film, which is not how I'd usually describe him. Although I had more of a crush on Michael Beck as Dallas. Even as an adult, I still enjoy the heck out of it as whey filled as it is. This is one film that I'm waiting with baited breath to come out on DVD, hopefully in widescreen so I can enjoy it on my 60" widescreen. Megaforce, in my opinion, followed by The Pirate Movie and The Ice Pirates would be the greatest 80's Cheese Ball movie festival ever.
