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.

Quotes

Gen. Stillmore: [watching mission slides noticing Sinclair coming in the room] Pull up a chair! This is one hell of a mess isn't it? I know you've done your best, General, but in light of this catastrophe I'm going to have to recommend that this mission be canceled. It all seemed harmless enough at the time didn't it? Russian Military General, U.S. Defense secretary they get together. They figure a small tactical force would save more lives than the plan we offered them. Hell anyone could buy that, huh? But ...

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.
