In the dogfight between the Russian and US fighters near the end of the film, we see the Russian fighter pilot apparently enabling his cannon by flicking a switch on the left portion of his dashboard, then blazing away at the US fighter. Shortly after the US pilot maneuvers around behind the Russian and apparently arms his air-to-air missiles with exactly the same switch. The identical shot was used to show both operations in 2 completely different aircraft. This shows up again in another shot in the same sequence when we see a Russian pilot actually hitting the correct Master Release to launch a missile, but on a panel with everything printed in English. He never gets a chance to launch and the same US pilot maneuvers behind the second Russin, arms HIS missiles with the exact same panel (identical shot used for the Russian arming his) and firing. Total time between shots: 14 seconds See more »

Sad to see films like this mess get the backing of the studios when little films of far greater significance and value lie in languor. This story (bad guys in a foreign country get close to atomic capabilities that would threaten the world until one turnaround soldier man saves the day and the globe) has been told so many times that the audience can sing along. The use of a lot of night shooting is obviously well considered as there isn't much to see anyway.
What happened to the Wesley Snipes who used to make really interesting films? Obviously the producers felt his star power could drive this dud as the remainder of the cast is unknown (though many seem to be really fine actors without the benefit of a script).
Thought about not wasting time reviewing this film, but then on the other hand, if enough people speak out about the bad movies that just keep coming down the pike, perhaps the studios and theaters will begin to pay attention. Grady Harp
