While experimenting with a new flight maneuver, Colonel Alex Long and Phil encounter a mysterious light over a mountain range. Phil becomes transfixed, flies into the light and disappears. Alex barely manages to come back and is in shock. The remains of Philip's plane are found later. As inquiries are made, Alex suggests that a UFO could have caused the light. The idea is quickly dismissed and Alex is then accused of having caused Phil to crash and making up the story about the light to cover up his mistake. Alex is temporarily grounded until further notice. Upon researching UFO's, he runs into Isabella, played by Patsy Kensit, who is also doing research on UFO's. She believes his story but no one else does. After the board is unable to prove Alex caused the crash, he can't seem to get the nerve to fly again. He's also outraged that his superiors want to drop the issue as if it never happened. His research with Isabella points to similar UFO sightings around the same mountain range. ...Written by
I just got done watching this fairly easy-to-find Italian hybrid of TOP GUN and CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, and am quite amazed by how much it completely sucks. The ending is a total cop-out and doesn't explain anything about what the film was building up to. On top of that, the film is boring and couldn't be any less interesting, with David Warner incessantly rambling on and on about proper procedure and Dirk Benedict arguing that he needs to find his lost wingman no matter what. The film boasts a whopping ONE action scene near the end which doesn't make any sense whatsoever (a couple pilots crash their planes while shooting at a beam of light)... and it couldn't be any more low-tech. Basically 90 minutes of footage of model airplanes zipping by the screen too fast to really see... and then lots of moronic dialog about UFO's (which never show up in the film, although they are continuously hinted at). Even CLOSE ENCOUNTERS finally showed the aliens at the end as relief for all the boredom before-hand. This action/sci fi film doesn't even try to be exciting. Basically another dull and worthless film. Grade = F.
