A hard but mediocre cop is assigned to escort a prostitute into custody from Las Vegas to Phoenix, so that she can testify in a mob trial. But a lot of people are literally betting that they won't make it into town alive.
As the film opens on an Oklahoma farm during the depression, two simultaneous visitors literally hit the Wagoneer home: a ruinous dust storm and a convertible crazily driven by Red, the ... See full summary »
The Soviets have developed a revolutionary new jet fighter, called "Firefox". Naturally, the British are worried that the jet will be used as a first-strike weapon, as rumours say that the jet is indetectable on radar. They send ex-Vietnam War pilot Mitchell Gant on a covert mission into the Soviet Union to steal Firefox.Written by

When the first rumors began to filter out of the Soviet Union some three years ago, our theoretical weapons strategists stood before NATO command to explain - with much confidence - that it would take the Soviets a minimum of ten years to develop a Mach Five aircraft with thought-controlled weapons systems. I stand before you today to explain - with much regret - that we were wrong.

There are no opening credits after the title has been shown. This has since become a trademark of all Eastwood-directed films. See more »
Dear viewers let me tell you about the Jet Fighter Firefox as well as Mig-31. For the firs time Scientists have invent anti-radar jet aircraft body & thought guided weapons system. Before the Mig-31 generally a Jet pilot needed to locked on the target & then through its weapon usually missiles. But the Mig-31 is 5/6 seconds advanced. Its pilot does not need to aim the target before the firing, which he can guide the missile (after firing) by the thought impulse without any sort of physical activity. It has also the speed of 6 Mac (6 times than sound), which is near about 4500 miles/hour. Because its Turmansky Turbo Jet can create 50000 pounds pressure/second in the air. This film showed the secret project took place at Bilyarosk, which is 600 miles east of Moscow. The pilot acted by Clint Eastwood reached Bilyarosk, taking off the Mig-31, make the civilian plane's pilot simply stunned & also made diversion (at first the Soviets thought he was going to south) by turning north at the Mountain area of Orosk, Ural. It only I would say weakly detected by the infrared (hit searcher) radar. But the former USSR's proud of its naval flit missile cruiser Riga simply failed to destroy it. Because the Mig-31 has the capability of firing decoy heat source from the back of its tail unit. That decoy was the writer & director has made the trick to win the US pilot against that second prototype Mig-31. I must gratitude to the MBC 2. Thanks to the writer & director to make a such an excellent film that a smart person enters the one time the world's most forbidden iron part & steals their best jet aircraft.
