Storyline

Pilot Paul Watkins is stationed in the Mediterranean area to fly patrol and to protect the air space from the expansion tendencies of an Arabian country. But then he's withdrawn from the patrol and gets the order to lead the actor Tom Slade around on their base and explain him everything: The popular star wants to get "the feeling" for his next movie. Paul is less than thrilled with this task, although he's impressed by Slade's talent. During a sample flight they get right into an air combat and into the enemy's land. Now they can show who's more of a fighter... Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

nifty planes didn't save this one.
6 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well this flick is just that a flick. The real stars are the f-16 and some nice air to air footage.

There are so many technical errors it's unreal. The whole premise for the shoot down I would say is inspired by the old 1980's airspace dispute with Lybia. There is no way a number of things that happen in this movie could or would happen. Because if it did Dr. Strangelove would have happened and we would be all dead.

1) No way would the USAF allow a civilian a flight in a Hot Zone area as they did just for a movie and PR. That could and would have been done in the US, just to dumb to be believed.

2) I firmly believe that NO USAF pilot would take a civilian into a combat area especially when ordered not to. The writers screwed up big time on that one would have made more sense to have them jumped over the Med. in international waters than a pilot running to the fight.

3) In the dog fight scenes you get great shots of F-16s but they are attacked by a different aircraft with each pass, from a Viggen, to a Mirage, to a A-4, gee unify how the enemy pilots can change aircraft in midair during a dogfight from 3 different countries.

4) Gee Libyan soldiers armed with M-16s another error.

5) The mercenary American pilot, gee a fighter pilot who needs corrected glasses, don't think so. especially thin dainty framed ones that could break apart in high G maneuvers of a dogfight.

The script is bearly passable. The only scene missing is the court martial and law suits.

John Waynes "Flying Tigers" with their lawnmower powered fake P-40s and campy script still beats this flick for overall enjoyment.

The only reason I have kept this flick in my collection is for the aerial shots of the planes and they are really the stars of the film.
