In the near future, the Navy develops a fighter jet piloted by an artificial intelligence computer. The jet is placed on an aircraft carrier in the Pacific to learn combat manuevers from the human pilots aboard. But when the computer develops a mind of its own, it's the humans who are charged with stopping it before it incites a war... Written by
When Lt. Gannon in Talon 1 is missle locked by the pursuing Russian fighter, he gives the voice command "release chafe and flare." The correct term is chaff not chafe. Ejecting chaff (pieces of lightweight foil usually aluminum) creates a cloud of tiny targets that can fool a radar guided missile as the targeted jet radically moves away. The flare reference is correct and is a defense against heat seeking missiles. See more »
During one of the latter dog fights, the pilots are dispensing chaff (not "chafe" as pronounced) to fool radar-guided missiles and flares to fool heat seeking missiles, but they are dispensed way too close to be effective. Air-to-air missiles in air combat maneuvering (ACM) are fired from up to sixty miles away, and generally no less than ten miles away. See more »
After the end of the credits, we go back to Korea and see the wreckage of EDI. We pass through most of the wreckage until we stop on EDI's central core. Suddenly, the red eye begins to glow..... See more »
This movie made me very happy. I felt like I was able to tell the future because it was so predictable. It also had overpriced special effects that made me smile. If only the actors were replaced with special effects, the movie would improve dramatically. My favorite person in the movie was a voice coming from an computer animated plane that looked like it shouldn't fly because it ignores all rule of physics. The worst part of the movie was the fact that it lasted more than 2 minutes. I liked the DVD menu. It was very special. After that the movie began to suck a lot. I still am angry at the individual who choose that movie. He should not be allowed to choose movies anymore. I give it one gold star for excellence. Better a gold star than an angry machine trying to kill people who don't like it. Anyways, don't waste your time watching this attempt (too nice of a word) of a movie. My little brother could have made a better one on his first try. He's only 13. Anyways it sucked.
