It's Superbowl. And there's a lot of drama, one of the players, Dave Wolecki, has been so preoccupied with the game and if his bum knee will hold out until the game, has been completely ... See full summary »
Harry Walker, X-military pilot, works for a radio station in Salt Lake City as a traffic helicopter pilot. While on his rounds he observes a bank robbery taking place and the abduction of a female teller. He follows, 1st the criminals in their car, then they transfer to a helicopter. Harry is running out of fuel so he stops on the road to flag down a tanker truck, gets fuel then continues the pursuit.Written by

The Hughes 500C that "Walker" flew throughout the film is one of the few turbine-engine helicopters (worldwide) which is flown single-pilot from the left seat. Since people tend to scan visually from left to right... the same way they read a book... it was more effective to have Walker in a left-facing helicopter like the 500C, as opposed to say, a Bell JetRanger, or a Fairchild FH-1100 which are flown from the right seat. Director William A. Graham shot all of the close-ups from the left side of the ship, usually looking slightly upward, with a tight depth-of-field. This threw everything behind Walker's shoulders out of focus. However, this was a dual-control ship! Note particularly the take-off after Walker fueled-up from the tanker truck. If you look closely (despite the fuzzy focus) you can readily see that the right-seat position looks unusually lumpy. That's because the film pilot who was doing the actual flying, was crouched in there, under a black shroud. See more »
Look, I don't expect someone like you to understand.
Yeah what do I know?
But I knew a guy once. Married young, married beautiful. He even treated her right the first year. And then for the next ten he broke her heart a day at a time. Moral - before you waste ten years, waste a month.

Frist time I saw this movie I thought that was the best helicopter action movie I have ever seen.The best part is when two helicopters fly inside the warehouse and just miss the I beam while flying around and the blade from the helicopter were moving up and down.I love the way it fly hard left to right and right to left take off while the dirt and sand flying up in the air.I know there so much more to tell but it just been so long time .They did a good job making that movie.I don't think they can make a better movie than this if it an update movie it real and danger that what make a great movie.Even so I am deaf and not understand. The Action tell it all! I been long waiting for it to come on DVD
Hopefully very soon. Ron Simpson
