Okay movie!
6 July 2004 | by Movie NuttballSee all my reviews

This film is a fair film. Michael Madsen, Chad McQueen, Melanie Shatner, Teri Thompson, and Larry Thomas are all good in the film. The film has good action scenes. It was different seeing how close McQeen's character was with Thompson's character. There is a brief nudity scene but not much. The musical score by David Wurst and Eric Wurst was good. But I noticed a lot of the score sounded like Jerry's Goldsmith's score from First Blood which is odd. Near the end I laughed when Michael Madsen got a cigarette out and asked his brother if he wanted a smoke and he took it and smoked it. It was funny because it seems Michael Madsen is always smoking a cigarette no matter what his character is. If you like Michael Madsen, Chad McQueen, the other cast members, and want to see a different type terrorist and war film then see Surface to Air!
