low-wattage nuclear thriller
22 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When a U.S. stealth bomber mysteriously crashes in a remote section of the Japanese Alps, a pair of intrepid war correspondents head up into the mountains to investigate what the plane might have been carrying. Meanwhile, two other journalists stay behind in the city to see if they can unravel the mystery from there.

This decidedly low-tech Japanese film is short on action scenes and special effects - the helicopters look like toy models suspended from invisible wires - and long on conversation and personal angst. The latter is provided mainly by the central character, a world famous war photographer who became disillusioned with what he saw on the battlefield and retreated into the wilderness, where he took endless pictures of mountains, alienating his now deceased wife and abandoning his little son in the process. But when the gravity of the current situation is revealed to him, he decides it's time to swing back into action, at great personal risk to himself and the buddy with whom he's working.

Apart from its being overlong and distended, there's nothing drastically wrong with "Midnight Eagle." It's a perfectly serviceable nuclear-age drama, I suppose, that just doesn't happen to add up to a whole lot in the end.
