Average motion picture about a stolen prototype with contrived plot and stock characters
8 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

The top secret prototype called Nova Stealth fighter has been hijacked by a Libyan spy during testing , as the Pentagon launches warning ; the aircraft shouldn't come into enemy hands. There is only one man who can retrieve the plane ; the test-pilot Vince Conners (Michael Dudikoff) . Vince is assigned by general (Michael Cavanaugh) to carry out the dangerous mission and set out in pursuit the stolen plane by means of a stealth jet nicknamed ¨Black Bird¨ SR 71 . He and his pal hot-dog pilot Jannick (Gary Hudson )pursue the Nova to Libya but when they land at the place their objective failure . ¨. Jannick has been trapped and top gun Conners is on the run. Without friends or allies they have to attempt to encounter the Nova without falling into the hostile hands of the military regime and before Libyian terrorists utilize the aircraft to blow up a meeting of the United Nations in Paris, with nerve gas , using bombs with chemical and nuclear power . Vince links with an equally rebellious fighter woman (Nancy Valen ) and blasts away at the ending . Meanwhile terrorist groups are united for buying atomic weapons to realize a nuclear massacre and world big alarm . But also Connors receives help from USS Sarasota carrier commandant (Frederic Forrester) and his assistant (Catherine Bell).

Lower-budget extended adventures produced by Robert Corman about a maverick pilot and his partner undergoing risked feats on air and earth . A standard actioner plenty action , struggles , shootouts and spectacular dogfighting . Dudikoff shows professionalism as crack fighter pilot assigned to get back an invisible jet . Comic touches by Gary Hudson provide some relief from the flights and explosions here . Acceptable aerial photography and functional musical score. The motion picture is regularly directed by Rick Jacobson . He is an usual director of TV movies as ¨Xena¨, ¨Hercules¨, ¨Cleopatra 2525¨, ¨Baywatch¨ and the successful ¨Spartacus¨; and occasionally directs for cinema as ¨Bad guys¨ , ¨A bold affair¨ and ¨Strategic command¨ in which play similar actors than ¨Black Thunder¨ . It's a predictable movie but often exciting . Rating : Passable , 5.
