--**Contains Spoilers**----Air Force pilot John Sands has been wrongfully imprisoned in a military detention center, where his memory is to be chemically wiped because some of his superiors feel threatened by the knowledge that he gained from his assignments to operations that were deemed too sensitive for the regular intelligence services. Later, after John escapes from the detention center, a top secret Air Force Stealth Bomber known as the X-77, which uses the latest in stealth cloaking technology, making it capable of going anywhere undetected, is stolen by corrupt Air Force pilot Ratcher.

Steven Seagal has said that this is his favourite movie since Under Siege. In an interview with Sight & Sound magazine he said "my character's arc was the most satisfying journey I've taken as a full-bodied action hero in some time. Where I've traditionally played guys who slap other guys about a bit and then throw them through some furniture, or slap some guys and shoot others, or shoot them and throw them through furniture, or even slap, shoot _and_ throw them through furniture, in this movie I slap some guys, shoot some guys, throw some through furniture...but then I _also_ get in a plane and drop bombs on others. So really that's a lot of range, and something new I can challenge myself with as a distraction to the frustration of my pants feeling tighter." See more »

Who would have thought that a Steven Seagal movie would employ loads of stock footage in it? Not me, not in 2001 at least when I last saw Big Steve on the big screen in the terrific "Exit Wounds".
"Flight of Fury" is hokey entertainment at best. The stock footage is painfully obvious and (probably) used to make the film look bigger. The story is awfully thin and it took Seagal and another dude to pen it. The fight scenes are uninspired and the gun play is fairly pedestrian. The flight scenes were far better some twenty years ago in "Top Gun" and the acting not very good. In fact, Old Steve mumbles his lines in such a relaxed manner that I expected him to fall asleep every now and then.
Despite all it's faults; "Flight of Fury" isn't all that painful to sit through. It moves along pretty well, the one on one fight with Steve at the end is well played out and an extra star must be awarded for his best physical form in years. There's even a lesbian scene here (completely out of the blue and pointless) but they're always quite the eye candy.
All in all, not a good movie by any means but for fans of Steve it may be worth the hour and a half on a slow night.
