Up there with the best of the best!! Dec 4, 2006
For those of you who might think this film is a Top Gun clone, or a movie that rode on the back of the Top Gun phenomena think again, it predates it by two years.
It follows the story of two pilots serving with the 132nd Air National Guard in Iowa, flying the venerable A-7 Corsair. The action sequences are well done with only one brief scene of stock footage, the rest being shot specifically for the film. For those of you who know how difficult and expensive it is to rent a military jet, this stands testament to how good the production values are here.
The main character Lyle (Christopher Stone) is haunted by a mission that went wrong in Vietnam, hes the original "maverick" character, he thinks he can do it better than anyone else and guaranteed to win the Gunsmoke trophy, until a cayacking accident starts to change his life around........
This is a film for the whole family and will appeal to aviation fans espcially. The acting is first class, Patty Dunning who was in the well known Mark IV pictures movie "thief in the night also makes an appearance.
This is a great film to show christians and non christians alike, IT COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE!!!!
Great Movie with a Great Christian Message!! Jul 9, 2006
This may be a 1980s movie, but it remains one of my favorite Christian movies of all time! With one man giving his life for his friend so that he will get a chance to receive Jesus Christ as his Savior and Lord, is one of the best and loving ways to draw people to God. If you are looking for a great witnessing tool to draw people to Christ and one that explains why we fight for our freedom down here then I would highly recommend it! And for those of you familiar with Dee Wallace from "ET" she also stars in this great Christian movie!
