Reviews
Mine: A ton of fun. Mathis, Slater and Travolta are all great. Wonderful action, great scenery and a finale on a train, what more could you ask for. Sure it's pretty dumb if you think about it, but hey, its not that kind of movie.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Extraordinarily stupid action movie about a high-security, high-tech Air Force pilot who deliberately crash-lands a U. S. plane in the midst of Utah and plans to hold its nuclear weapons for ransom. He doesn't reckon with his younger copilot (Slater) or the U. S. park ranger (Mathis) who join in a determined pursuit to thwart him. Packed with director Woo's expected action set pieces and stunts, but Travolta's over-the-top bad guy is fairly monotonous, and story continuity/credibility is almost nonexistent. Did it have to be this dumb? Super 35.
