Goofs

A belly shot is seen of a landing gear extending, with two two-wheeled gear struts moving outwards and downwards (as on a Boeing 737). However, the F-15 this is supposed to depict, has two one-wheeled main gear struts which move downward and backward during extension. See more »

Korean version of top gun but didn't live up to expectation
15 May 2013 | by alternatechengSee all my reviews

Weak storyline, like most aviation film much as to my disappoint this could have gotten a good 7 if the writers thought of a better script. There was too many silly lines that I wonder if this was suppose to be a manga filled humour or a live action film. The thing I found interesting though is the tensed relationship with the Americans and Koreans when dealing with missile crisis, couldn't the writers explore on that more than silly aspect of the film. Poor CGI, while it is understandable that there are parts of the film where real fighter jets cannot be used i.e. city dog fight scenes, I believe that they could have done a better job. The characters, I really don't think the Korean Air force would have allowed impulsive, childish and hot headed pilots into their ranks. And what is with them abusing the engineers. Come on its the military discipline, team work and proper conduct is a big thing there.

Verdict: Disappointing, this film could have done better.
