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

During Jason's flashback of his arrival at the hospital after a car crash, a loudspeaker is heard calling "Dr. Stahl and Dr. Gee to psychiatrics". This is almost certainly a reference to Eric Steven Stahl and Gerald Laurence (a.k.a. G-man), the movie's writers. See more »

Officially....
5 January 2000 | by mroberts-2See all my reviews

I have seen many films in my life. Some amazing, some dire. However, this film surpasses anything I have ever encountered. As film goers we sit and tolerate a slow start, confused plots, etc., in the hope that they improve. This film does not. I am loathe to even write about it, as it has already wasted two hours of my life. Be warned the marketing bods have been at work and the back of the video cover even makes this sound exciting, 20,000 digital effects and out-of-this-world mystery. If I every have to watch this film again, I will end it all. Officially ...... The worst film I have ever seen. And I've seen Nothing But Trouble.
