As the start, the plane pilot castigates Gray for smoking near the fuel tanks. Which shows he's an actor, not an aviator. AV fuel has an extremely high flash point. You could drop a lit cigarette onto AV fuel and it still wouldn't catch alight. See more »

Solid thriller from cult director
Well, it's not "Phantasm", but it's still a good 1980's movie from Don Coscarelli, who is a very interesting author. Although the basic idea is looks like a remake of "First Blood" in which one John Rambo is replaced by a group of regular people and sheriff with his officers is replaced by a bunch of military, the story itself is quite good. We see how these two groups are moving from indifference to confrontation and then whole conflict becomes a run for survival for ones and hide-and-seek game for others. Lance Henricksen is good here - nothing special, but just a good actor in adequate role. Also, there's a lot of action, some shooting and fighting, but keep in mind it's a thriller first, not an action or horror, and I hope you'll not be disappointed.
