Storyline

Fighter navigator Chris Burnett wants out: he was looking for something more than the boring recon missions he's been flying. He finds himself flying the lone Christmas day mission over war-torn Bosnia. But when he talks pilot Stackhouse into flying slightly off-course to check out an interesting target, the two get shot down. Burnett is soon alone, trying to outrun a pursuing army, while commanding officer Reigert finds his rescue operation hamstrung by politics, forcing Burnett to run far out of his way. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Goofs

Immediately after the aborted carrier takeoff scene at the beginning, Burnett and Stackhouse exit the plane to go toward the front of the ship to "kick" the football. In the next shot, as they are still walking only seconds later, the plane has completely disappeared and the catapult shuttle is all the way at the front of the ship, even though it never fired.

Worst racists propaganda, I've ever seen.
24 April 2002 | by (Budapest, Hungary) – See all my reviews

I had a big problem following this 'movie' - I couldn't understand what they were speaking! Not in English, but in Serbian, and that's a bit weird since that's my mother tongue. So since authors ware not able to find few Serbs to play the main roles, I guess that tells you something about this crap, I mean 'movie'. This 'movie' is equally shameful for Serbs, Croats and Bosnian Muslims, and not to speak that is a literary spit to thousands of victims fallen in this war. And most of all this is disgrace for those who made it and those who can swallow this 'ramboistic masterpiece'.

I'm only sorry that I was not there to 'welcome' Lt. Burnett (main 'rambo-pilot-superman'), personally. But in that case this would be 5 minutes short documentary, instead of 105 minutes long fairy tale.
