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 But then he's withdrawn from the patrol and gets the order to lead the actor Tom Slade around on their base and explain him everything: The popular star wants to get "the feeling"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

Hot wings
2 April 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In the early 1990s with movies like Hot Shots parodying Top Gun and The Hard Way parodying actors doing the method, Into the Sun is cheapo film aimed more for the video market, it uses out takes from the Iron Eagle film.

Paul Watkins (Michael Paré) is an American pilot somewhere in the Mediterranean who has to show action star Tom Slade (Anthony Michael Hall) how it is to be like a fighter pilot in order to prepare for his next film role.

Watkins is put out when Slade hits on his on/off girl at the base but is surprised to discover that Slade is very likable and competent. In fact there is hardly anything he is not good at and manages to do some simulation without any problems.

When Watkins takes Slade for a ride in a F-15 fighter they are shot down in the desert and must escape their captors.

The first half starts brightly as it rips off Top Gun, Hall is likable as Slade who plays the very competent actor when it would had been easier to make him an ego obsessed actor who is almost useless at everything for easy laughs.

Pare is more laid back and subtle here, then again he is reserved for the action/adventure later on. I was not sure whether the latter part of the story when the are hunted by various Arab factions quiet worked and was an uneasy shift in tone from the earlier part of the film.

The film looked cheap in places, but a watchable B movie.
