Storyline

Chappy Sinclair is called to gather together a mixed Soviet/U.S. strike force that will perform a surgical strike on a massively defended nuclear missile site in the Middle East. Chappy finds that getting the Soviet and U.S. Pilots to cooperate is only the most minor of his problems as he discovers someone in the Pentagon is actively sabotaging his mission. As they begin their assault, Chappy finds that a nuclear strike has been ordered should they fail, which will catch his forces on the ground next to ground zero.

Trivia

It can clearly be seen on some of the computer screens at the enemy missile base that spreadsheets of Lotus 123 are loaded instead of any missile launch software. See more »

Goofs

The "bmp"'s are loaded into the transport facing forwards (although the turret is facing backwards). However, when they exit the crashed transport, they exit moving forward when they should have been backing out. See more »

Quotes

Col. Vardovsky: [sitting at the bar and noticing Sinclair coming over] Mmmm! A drink General!
Sinclair: How much of this did you know, Colonel?
Col. Vardovsky: What? I have been relieved of my command just like you.
Sinclair: Oh, God you don't get it do you? They used you, man. They used me too.
Col. Vardovsky: Used us for what?
Sinclair: To fail, god damn it! God! Isn't it obvious by now? Look at this you got Yuri Lebanov, three times reprimanded by The Party. Georgi Koshkin: five years disciplinary duty in Siberia.
Col. Vardovsky: Thousands of innocent lives.
Sinclair: What?
Col. Vardovsky: Didn't they tell you...

Not nearly as bad as depicted here
22 February 2006 | by cny_cdSee all my reviews

I think that some of the comments are VERY exaggerated here. I personally prefer this movie to the first one, and the next two were just awful. Sure, there are some story lines that have been seen before. Sure, there is a bit of "Schlock" in here. But overall, this is very watchable, and pretty entertaining, especially considering how inexpensive this DVD is. I have seen this movie a few times, and I think that it is a pretty good movie. People that just pick apart every detail need to get a life. How many movies have incorrect footage of airplanes, or footage that has been used before? Who cares??? We know these people aren't actually flying these planes!! It's not like the scene in "Bullitt", where Steve McQueen is actually driving.....geez people....give this a break....it ain't that bad, in fact it's pretty good.....
