Storyline

A top US Air Force fighter pilot decides that his call sign of Black Angel means that he's a messenger of God. Freely committing murders as he goes, he steals a nuclear weapon and his plane. Taking a family hostage to help him, he works on bypassing the bomb's security lockouts so he can use it on the most sinful of American cities. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

Gaiter's screen shows that 4 Sidewinder and 2 Sparrow missiles are being ordered for Gordon's Mirage III, in addition to bombs. The Mirage III can't carry that many weapons, as it only has 5 hard points. Nevertheless, Gordon's onboard display has icons for 11 weapons. He actually fires more of them than that, but the display does not count down consistently. Also, when when we actually see Gordon's plane it always seems to be carrying just 2 Sidewinders, and every time we see him fire one, it's one on the left. See more »

Worth a look
28 February 2004 | by (Tampa, Florida) – See all my reviews

A good example of storytelling without using big stars and boffo special effects to put a point across. Mentally-disturbed young Air Force pilot takes it upon himself to destroy humanity--or as much of it as he can--on a mission from God. Manages to be gripping and scary particularly in the flying sequences and when he takes a young family hostage. Slow-going for some to be sure but real tension exists in his scenes with the wife, played believably by future Tony-winner Pawk, as he prepares for his "mission". This villain is a sad and methodical victim of his own madness. Strauss--a rather limited player--is appropriately stalwart and the voice of reason as his commanding officer, tho I couldn't help but think of Robert Stack in "Airplane!" trying to help the saner Robert Hays come in for a landing.
