The U.S. Government is willing to help any country that requires help in ridding themselves of drugs with support from the Army. Unfortunately, the drug cartels have countered that offer by hiring one of the best air-combat mercenaries and have armed him with a Scorpion attack helicopter. The army decides to send in its best people from its Apache Air Combat school. But first they have to be taught how to fly air-to-air combat missions Written by

An OH-58D (The helicopter flown by Sean Young's character) can not be flown single-pilot in the left seat. Many of the Mission-Related controls are only available to the Right-hand seat (Pilot-in-command seat.) See more »
Military Apache helicopter flier Nicolas Cage butts heads with instructor Tommy Lee Jones and romances fellow pilot Sean Young in "Fire Birds", a silly "Top Gun" rip-off that just did not take off in 1990. The U.S. government has decided to help various countries in the world with their drug-trafficking problems by fighting the enemy with assault choppers. Future Oscar-winners Cage and Jones just seem to be lost in the ridiculous material and Young could never act to start with. A silly script and second-rate direction complete the air-field of nothingness. 2 stars out of 5.
