Movie Reviews

(1 out of 5 stars)

"It takes only a few minutes to see how awful this thing is. The film starts out with some jets involved in a high-speed, transcontinental race. Well, our hero pilot Grant (Antonio Sabato Jr.) decides that he needs to be refueled.Have you ever seen a pit crew refuel a car out on the track during a NASCAR race? Nope...neither have I. It would be kinda dangerous I imagine. Well, Grant's jet gets refueled by another plane while they are in the direct flight path of the other racing jets. What happens? Duh...there is a horrible collision and three pilots (along with 11 spectators...huh?) end up dead. Nice move guys.Perhaps the funniest, and most pathetic, event in the film happens a bit later. Several years have passed since the tragic jet race incident and we are listening to an executive of the network which had done a live broadcast of the race. The executive says...are you ready?...he says that the footage of the jets colliding during the race was the highest rated piece of news footage that they had shown during the past four years. Unbelievable!! Talk about a future world in which nothing exciting happens. Must be boring.Other things to look for are a guy who is somehow making a coughing noise while his mouth isn't even moving. Also, a scene where a shirtless Sabato Jr. is about to put on a tank top. He picks it up but the camera changes angles and now it's nowhere to be seen. Then the camera changes angles again and he's pulling it over his head. Great editing!Everything is bargain basement in this film except for the halfway decent acting. With a paper thin plot and awful effects, though, I strongly recommend not wasting your time watching this dreck. A final note...with no nudity and no graphic violence, I have no clue as to why this is rated R."
