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

Gordon tells Gaiter, at gunpoint, to change the serial number on his BDU in the computer to "AF-463908-SW," but we see on her screen a pop-up dialog showing it being changed from "AF25828-BDU" to "AF46398-BDU." Meanwhile, in the background window of her screen, highlighting and out-of-sequence serial numbers seem to show that "AF25828-BDU" and "AF46398-SW" have been interchanged. See more »

Surprisingly good
15 October 2000 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Before he had the big budget of U-571, director Jonathan Mostow proved back in 1991 that he has what it takes to create a gripping movie. I rented this because I was writing a screenplay with a similar premise. The aerial combat sequences here are just as -- if not more so -- thrilling as anything in TOP GUN. I wish they would have got someone else to play Cpt. Gordon aka "Black Angel" -- still, the thesp gets across a spooky desperation. The script doesn't fully explain his motivation, but it's clear he has some kind of God-complex. Peter Strauss is also believable as the Mentor.

If you like military or doomsday thrillers, this is worth a rent or watching on cable.

Also of note: screenwriters John Brancato and Mike Ferris (THE NET, THE GAME) are billed as assoc. producers, though I don't know what their role in the production was.
