Storyline

Col. Jason Halsey (USAF) has just had a terrible air disaster and can't remember a thing -- even his name. Now he must go head-to-head with the psychiatrist Dr. Gottlieb as his only chance to recover his memory. Col. Halsey is a stealth fighter test pilot in the highly classified project Black Magic. Is Dr. Gottlieb a helping professional or is he a counter-intelligence agent sent to debrief Halsey? This movie draws considerable footage from the Lockheed Corp. documentary "Blackbird: The Movie" for its background material on the SR-71 spy plane. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The first film to be originally recorded, mixed and mastered in pure digital sound, similar to a compact Disc with DDD sound. 'Fantasia (1940)' was also re-recorded in digital audio in 1982 and presented in digital sound in 1985 in two theatres in the US, but that was a dual system with the sound being on a special VHS tape and synchronized with the picture.

Intelligence Litmus Test on a Disc
8 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

Final Approach is a very different movie and people with the thrill-a-minute attitude will never get it. The sound effects in this movie are incredible for their day. There are hundreds of different effects to tantalize your ears. The entire point of the movie will be come apparent to everyone in the final seconds of the movie. The litmus test is to see when someone watching the movie for the first time says "Ah Ha! I understand what is happening...." Those who get to the end of the movie without getting it should be allowed to return to their 7-11 night manager job and you should talk to them later.

I suggest this movie to anyone who likes to watch movies where at least some thought is required.
