This low budget action film is a good leading role for Billy Wirth in that his character looks good, fights good, drives a sports car and can attract females! The kind of flick I watched as a teenager and thought how cool it would be to emulate the main man! The makers are obviously hoping to attract the viewers who liked Top Gun and the Iron Eagle movies but it reminded me more of Final Approach. The Jet sequences are not awe inspiring, but then again as it is based around "virtual reality" technology so actual flying is not meant to be featured too much anyway. I liked the dialogue to this film, "I don't like tail gators" said by Tom Waters (Wirth) when been too closely followed in his car on in his fighter jet became something of a catch phrase in my house hold. The thriller aspect of the film means it is not something you could watch again like a good classic straight to video action flick but it a solid movie of its kind.
