Trivia

Although the movie itself was a flop, its title song "Calling To You" (played over the end credits) has been successful enough to be remade twice: by Journey (whose core-member Jonathan Cain co-wrote the tune); and by Frehley's Comet (fronted by Ace Frehley of KISS fame). See more »

Quotes

Ace Hunter: Well, there are reasons for everything we do, Major.
Major Zara: And do they include leaving your guests to bake in the middle of the desert, greeted by a cowboy, and be attacked by wild creatures?
Ace Hunter: Well, if it's a comfortable tour you're looking for, I have connections... at DisneyLand!

The most MEMORABLE movie I ever saw!
21 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

I was very excited as a kid when this movie was being released to the theaters. The US Military was apparently on location studying this one on location to design the future of warfare.

It was STUNNING when Leonard Maltin reviewed this film on television and was so offended by it that he gave it a ZERO out of ten.

My childhood friend and I went to see it on the opening weekend and were completely blown away by it's crazy energy. Adding to the amazement of the day was that the theater was almost totally empty. We 'owned' the place, as if the film was made totally for us.

Back then all we had was allowance money, but decided that we *HAD* to see it again. We considered rushing back that week, but decided to wait for the following weekend and to our horror it was gone! It was one of the tackiest movies ever made, but the energy was like Rambo II on steroids.

"Normal" people will probably never bother with this one, but if you do watch at *LEAST* the first 10 minutes, and see the ultra cool military-machinegun-rocket-motor bike intro scene. The music and editing made me want to join Megaforce.

Never before, and never again shall we see one like this...and but for we happy few, the whole world missed it. The audience for this one were as few and elite as the Megaforce itself! I still laugh with glee about this film.
