comically awfulBy a customer from bracknell , 03 Mar 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]So bad its good.
Terrible corny dialogue is the main problem. Sample:-
Instructor (Tommy-Lee Jones in usual Tommy-Lee style of delivery) to pupil pilot:- 'If you crash and kill us all, this mission, will be, a failure.'

Second rate.By jonnytash (215 reviews) from Berwick-upon-Tweed , 10 Dec 2011It shows its age on seeing it for the first time. Really corny dialogue and second rate acting, really cheesy! Not a one to get for a evening viewing.
Quite missable filmBy a customer from Farnborough , 30 Sep 2011This film has a gung-ho script with lots of poor acting, which is strage considering the good actor line-up. Could be down to them being quite young.
The amazingly quick way that Cage was cured of his eye dominance problem was complete rubbish. No way would it be that quick.
Some good flying sequences and good music from Phil Collins, but not enough to give more stars to teh rating.
All those criticsBy vipmig (4 reviews) , 07 Sep 2011Say what you want, but I love this movie.All those critics,its not the best one but find me better about Apache helicopters!!Aerial scenes are brilliant.
Imagine a worse version of top gun...By a customer from Rugeley , 14 Feb 2011And you have this film. Tommy Lee is the best bit. Nicholas cage is a douchebag as usual and the Apache is a great machine but not as cool as fighter jets. Also the soundtrack is by Phil Collins.
Films like this are great for nights when you just want to watch stuff get blown up.
A waste of an opportunity.By Antiquary (52 reviews) from Aberdeen , 09 Dec 2010Fighting helicopters of the US armed forces in conflict with those of South American drug barons. What more promising material for a film could there be a real old-style goodies-versus-baddies conflict, with unlimited opportunities for thrilling action sequences and displays of courage, loyalty, combat skills, comradeship in arms, and all the things we used to go to the pictures to see. So why did it turn out so dull that I gave up half-way through? Simple a bad script and acting to match. The characterisation was nil: the script might have been written for a team of robots; and the performances made it look as if it had been. I dont want to sound like an old fogey, but be honest those ancient war-movies with Kirk Douglas, John Wayne, Randolph Scott and their kind may have been naïve, but they were ENTERTAINING: they contained characters whom you could like or hate, admire or despise not just figures who went through the motions of fighting and gave no hint that they so much as knew or cared what they were fighting about. If aerial shoot-outs and an occasional punch thrown on the ground are all it takes to make a film work for you, youll probably enjoy this one; but some of us expect more.
