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 But then he's withdrawn from the patrol and gets the order to lead the actor Tom Slade around on their base and explain him everything: The popular star wants to get "the feeling"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

Well worth a watch
15 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this was better than Top Gun. One of Michael Pare's best performances. Although he gets a lot of flack for his Brooklyn accent, I thought he had a great comedic rapport with Anthony Michael Hall. And yes, if I was pilot, I would want a guy like Shotgun on my side. Someone complained that the script was horribly written. I'm sure there were better, but somehow the actors managed to make the story interesting. The villain was well played and in my opinion, was not stereotypically evil. Rather, he was someone who was opportunistic when he was previously denied. All in all, Into the Sun definitely had me in my seat. I highly recommend it.
