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 But then he's withdrawn from the patrol and gets the order to lead the actor Tom Slade around on their base and explain him everything: The popular star wants to get "the feeling" for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 <>

It's fun
15 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

The way I feel it, "Into the Sun" consists of two partly separated parts. The first part is a drama/comedy-part, where we are introduced to the characters and where the plot starts. The unlucky Captain Paul Watkins has too take care of a rather self-loving actor called Tom Slade, who's going to learn about the life of military pilots. Even though this part of the movie is a bit entertaining, it's not what you're waiting for in a movie like this. Luckily, lots of action kicks in in the second part of the movie. That was what I had been waiting for. The action is surprisingly good for a movie like this, even if it's standard B-action with lots of explosions and evil bad guys getting asskicked.
