Storyline

While experimenting with a new flight maneuver, Colonel Alex Long and Phil encounter a mysterious light over a mountain range. Phil becomes transfixed, flies into the light and disappears. Alex barely manages to come back and is in shock. The remains of Philip's plane are found later. As inquiries are made, Alex suggests that a UFO could have caused the light. The idea is quickly dismissed and Alex is then accused of having caused Phil to crash and making up the story about the light to cover up his mistake. Alex is temporarily grounded until further notice. Upon researching UFO's, he runs into Isabella, played by Patsy Kensit, who is also doing research on UFO's. She believes his story but no one else does. After the board is unable to prove Alex caused the crash, he can't seem to get the nerve to fly again. He's also outraged that his superiors want to drop the issue as if it never happened. His research with Isabella points to similar UFO sightings around the same mountain range. ...

NATO training secrets revealed
13 December 2002 | by (Washington State) – See all my reviews

Can you believe this is the way we train NATO fighter pilots? The final scene of Blue Tornado involves the hero climbing a mountain. Col. Long (Dirk Benedict) has to climb this mountain to encounter the aliens. So, how does he prepare? He gets the aged father of his missing buddy to guide him. Col. Long lets the old man carry all the supplies in a huge pack. The old man also has the only ice axe. Col.Long just walks along following the old man. Just when you get feeling good and sorry for the tired old man, he slips and falls. It looks like a broken leg, and Col. Long is forced to leave the old man to spend the night alone on a narrow ledge. Does Col. Long provide first aid or pick up the pack or the ice axe? - No, he continues on his quest so he can get there before dark. I won't spoil the ending, but Col. Long does not have any emergency provisions when he faces it.

The rest of the movie is just as dumb, the unspecial effects are lame, and the acting is stiff. Don't miss this one if you possibly can.
