Film Review - Broken Arrow
Broken Arrow? Broken Screenplay! Ah man, this is the most unbelievable piece of crapola to get
Released in a long time. Try this on for size ...
A Stealth bomber pilot is able to get live nuclear ammo loaded on his plane for a "practice" bombing run. Yeah, no special signatures, no nothing. The same pilot also knows all the codes that you can manually type into said nukes to blow them up. Sure. He's also crazy as a loon and no one knows this.
Welcome to today's Air Force! Come on, why does Hollywood think the armed forces is a birthday party waiting to happen? This is an example of people who have no idea what they're talking about making a film.
John Travolta is a complete waste here as the psycho with the nukes. Christian Slater is fair as the sane co-pilot who is trying to stop him. However, Samantha Mathis as the picture babe is really good. If it weren't for her, I might have fallen asleep.
