Twice the speed of sound?

"Despite a good plot, I'm afraid that even with outstanding acting talent by just about all cast members, I found myself thinking that this was a movie that was a COULD HAVE BEEN GREAT MOVIE, but WASN'T, due to too many characters, too many non-essential scenes, too much confusion, and bad editing.Once into the story (finally, after a subplot that should have been omitted to make the story tighter) it was fast paced and exciting, but even then it needed more intriege and believability.The star of this film had little opportunity to be the real hero,and I found his part actually rather bland. Not his fault of course that he couldn't give it more 'omph' or 'pizzaz'.But, the film had an intrieging plot in keeping with these uncertain times, and I enjoyed seeing such great stars as David Hedison in a gutsy supporting role of which I only wish there had been more of."
DOWN TO BOZNESS

"MACH 2 entertained me and that's what I want in an action movie. Brian Bosworth is a quiet presence; when he acts "bland", it's bad acting; when Bruce Willis or Clint Eastwood play their blandness, it's called charisma or something else. With a fine supporting cast including Michael Dorn, Shannon Whirry, Lance Guest, Jean Paul Vignon, Cliff Robertson and David Hedison, I found this tense thriller interesting and was caught up in it. The prospect of starting wars to make the country more financially stable is nothing unheard of, and abord the Concorde, we get caught up in it too.
I think this was a nicely done B film."
