A soundtrack release was originally planned for a 1982, but did not happen until 2011. According to an interview with composer Jerrold Immel published in the soundtrack CD booklet, he asked Carly Simon to write and perform lyrics to the love theme heard during the skydiving scene. Carly considered it, but ultimately declined the offer and the song remained an instrumental. See more »
When Commander Hunter is 'flying' his motorcycle towards the AC-130 at the end of the movie, he is clearly not actually flying a motorcycle. See more »
Well, I know how you feel, and I've been there myself. Let me see. One time before I made a jump into the night, an old buddy of mine told me something that made me feel a whole lot better.
What, what did he tell you to do?
Well, he said, "You love 'em in blue and you love them in red. But most of all you love them in blue."
That's totally inapplicable to anything that's going on here. And it's _dumb_. Who told you that?
But it's very wise. Very wise.

One of the first jobs I ever had was with a catering company. Imagine our excitement being hired on for the desert-location filming of MEGAFORCE! Everyone involved with the film seemed quite confident that it was going to become a smash summer hit.
Watching the filming at Nevada's dry lakes, it did feel like something monumentous was in the making, but nobody could have imagined just how negative a reaction this movie was going to receive. I almost didn't want to see it, but curiosity got the better of me. Truthfully, I don't think it's nearly as horrible as many have made it out to be, though it's certainly not *good*, either. There's enough vehicle stunts, random explosions, and weapons futurismo to keep average 12-year-olds very entertained, and I think that may be exactly what Hal Needham intended for this project.
I still have a box filled with t-shirts, ball-caps, and other promotional crap emblazoned with "DEEDS, NOT WORDS". It may not have the iconic carriage of, say, "MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU", but I'll keep these things for posterity, anyhow...
...and I hope everyone on the set enjoyed the food...
