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 »

Mildly Entertaining
29 September 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I bought this movie on DVD as I am a big fan of Iron Eagle and Flight Of Black Angel was suggested as a similar type movie.

Firstly, I must say that I approached this with an open mind. I realized that this wasn't a big budget movie and didn't expect it to wow me, but reading the reviews here made me hopeful that this might be pretty good.

The movie starts very slow. The acting in the opening scenes is mediocre at best. The direction is pretty good, but relies heavily on slow zooms to invoke suspense and atmosphere - this works to some degree but is overdone to the point of becoming boring. The lighting is pretty bad on some scenes.

As the story develops, it starts to gather some momentum. The acting seems to improve a little and the script is OK for the most part. The flight sequences are taken straight out of Iron Eagle which kind of works, but having seen Iron Eagle, I couldn't help make comparisons and it becomes evident that compared to that, the script and acting doesn't come close. Another annoying thing form me is that some of the scenes show the bombing of US troops and anti-aircraft weapons - these are taken straight from Iron Eagle and you can see the uniforms of the middle eastern enemies from IE who are meant to be US in this movie, but if I hadn't mentioned it you may not have noticed :-)

The second half of the movie works much better, the pace is just about right and the introduction of new characters lifts the whole thing.

Overall I would say this movie is maybe worth a look if there is nothing else on TV but I wouldn't suggest going out of your way to see it.
