Storyline

Chappy Sinclair is called to gather together a mixed Soviet/U.S. strike force that will perform a surgical strike on a massively defended nuclear missile site in the Middle East. Chappy finds that getting the Soviet and U.S. Pilots to cooperate is only the most minor of his problems as he discovers someone in the Pentagon is actively sabotaging his mission. As they begin their assault, Chappy finds that a nuclear strike has been ordered should they fail, which will catch his forces on the ground next to ground zero.

Goofs

The F-4 Phantom II fighter-bomber was shown as a single seat aircraft. F-4 Phantoms are two seat aircraft with the radar operator sitting behind the pilot. Therefore when the Russians landed in Israel for the mission, 4 officers should have climbed down from the aircraft instead of just 2. See more »

Not as bad as all that
8 June 1999 | by See all my reviews

I have seen this film several times not and, although they tried to pass off American F-4 Phantoms as Russian MiG-29's (and several other technical mistakes) the film concept and story line were good, and the acting was also not bad.
