Three years after Hank Thomas was thrown out of the air force because his best friend was killed in a military experiment/exercise led by Major Carson who caused the crash of TWA flight 800, he is approached by a group of CIA agents led by Harold Peters and Sharon Williams and Carson. They tell him that a microwave beam weapon killed his friend and those on TWA flight 800 and has now been attached to a super-sonic fighter plane called the Flacon. The falcon project has just been canceled by the military and the company that built it plans to steal it from its base at Area 51 and then sell it to the Chinese for $10 billion and that they need Hank's help to steal the plane and fly it to Alaska to have it dismantled before the company steals it. Hank and the CIA agents are secretly parachuted into Area 51 and in a gun battle get to the Falcon's hanger and steal it.

Goofs

TWA flight 800 had "Trans World" on the side of the 747, not "Trans Global" as seen in the film. See more »

awful, terrible, dreadful
25 April 2003 | by (Adelaide, Australia) – See all my reviews

The blurb on the DVD case lied when I saw this in the shop but thank goodness I had only paid 9 dollars for it.

If ever one could win an award for making an awful movie this is it. The blurb told me it would be a somewhat exciting film but it was in my opinion woefully disappointing. The action scenes didn't contain much action, and the little video segments bordered on the hilarious.

In short don't waste your money buying this film but if you must see it rent it.
