Movie Reviews

Afterburn
djokolot | Greenville, South Carolina | 06/11/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Your heart and support will go out to Janet Harduvel in this true story, as she fights to clear her husband of blame when his F-16 aircraft crashes due to a mechanical defect. With the help of her attorney, they beat the odds and win their case in court, but not without pressure from the military and the plane's manufacturer. This well written script will make you stand up and cheer their victories as friends and associates are forced to take sides, as the tension builds and more serious conflicts occur, and as she copes to deal with the personal struggle of fighting a corporate giant and raising a child alone. Janet Harduvel fights a heartwarming battle through a typical military and corporate cover-up."
Not everything is perfect but truth show through

"This movie is based off actual accounts of a fighter pilot death due to wire chaffing, an on going problem in any man made thing. Not all the facts are presented in the movie (hollywood trys to over glorify movies with "military experts" who never served a day or lifed the life as a spouse.) Over all a good content, story flow, and for the time raised a few guestions. But also consider this, in the real deal no information is released to public till investagation is done and notification of next kin."
