Goofs

A belly shot is seen of a landing gear extending, with two two-wheeled gear struts moving outwards and downwards (as on a Boeing 737). However, the F-15 this is supposed to depict, has two one-wheeled main gear struts which move downward and backward during extension. See more »

User Reviews

 
Bland and boring with one good action scene.
6 January 2019 | by paulclaassenSee all my reviews

This film didn't have the look and feel of a Korean film. It also felt like two completely different films: the first half being a slow-paced comedy; the second half a fast-paced action drama. The film felt like it didn't really know what it wanted to be, and even during the more serious moments, I didn't find the actors serious enough. Most of the time I had no idea what the film was actually about.

The antagonists are not set up properly and only appears at the halfway mark, without any mention of them prior to this. The attack happens suddenly without explanation as to why they are attacking or who they really are. The attack scene was really good, but not enough to save the film. It felt like they blended together 'Top Gun' and 'Behind enemy lines' to ultimately become 'Sky Hunter'. Speaking of which, I'd rather watch 'Sky Hunter' a hundred times over before giving this film a second viewing.
