Did You Know?

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

At the first hologram scene, Dallas says to show it in place of the big rock. Once the hologram is over, the big rock disappears as well. 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.

Not Good-Bad...just Bad
18 January 1999 | by (Iowa City, IA) – See all my reviews

As noted, this movie isn't even really good for watching for the unintentional humor. Barry Bostwick is the least believable action hero of all time, and somewhere, someone seems to have thought Persis Khambatta was an interesting, attractive, exotic beauty with screen presence: Megaforce proves this theory, however unlikely, dead wrong. Basically an ego-vehicle for Hal Needham, who tries to cash in on the success the Smokey and the Bandit movies attached (undeservingly) to his name. Definite proof he should have stuck to stunt work.
