Slight Goofs
25 September 2004 | by kalexSee all my reviews

OK, guys. Lighten up. It's not THAT bad--and as another commenter said, it has Horst Buckholz (cf: "One, Two, Three," with Cagney, not to mention "The Magnificent Seven," for crying out loud!). Name me another great fly-boy shoot-em up fantasy flic that has United States Senator Fred Thompson AND Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini in it? Plus great warbird flying footage?

As an Air Force vet, a little boo-boo that stood out immediately to me: In scenes where Chappy (Lou Gossett's character) is in his "dress blue" Air Force uniform (eagles on the epaulets correctly indicating a colonel) he clearly has ENLISTED MAN'S (airmen and sergeants) "U.S." insignia on his lapels. It shows the "U.S." inside a ring. That's how it looks on an enlisted man's uniform. A colonel (an officer) would have just plain "U.S." without the circle around it. Have a look at his boss's (the general) lapels. He has the correct ones.
