Trivia

In a wide shot of the plane dragging the purple lightening ball over a mountain, you can spot down in the bottom left corner of the screen, for the first three frames, a tiny image of "The Grinch". Artists snuck it in as a joke, because the mountain looked similar to the mountains from the Ron Howard film. See more »

Goofs

When fighting the super storm the plane is hit by lightning. This takes out 2 of the 3 generators on board. The status display shows generators 1 and 2 are off with number 3 on. Shortly afterward one of the crew reports that generators 2 and 3 were lost but number 1 is still on-line. See more »

Pretty forgettable.
29 March 2004 | by (Guam) – See all my reviews

This film pretty much lived up to the expectations of a low budget action movie. There were some bad actors, the leads were ok and the story and dialogue was pretty predictable. Pretty much all the characters play parts they've played many times before. The Air Force was not shown in the best of lights, with only scheming and weaselish characters in the forefront. It wasn't really campy by my definition, which might've made it more fun. It's lack of shining moments of good or bad made to film pretty forgettable. I just saw it myself a day ago and the details have already faded. Basically if you go into it with no expectations then you'll come out of it shrugging.
