Based off the novel by Craig Thomas, this spy thriller depicts an aging pilot's effort to steal a top secret fighter jet from the Russians. If you've seen any number of 1980s espionage themed movies, you kind of know how it pans out. Hero infiltrates the Soviet Union, has allies on the inside, escapes several near-death encounters with pursuers. Rinse and repeat.
Clint Eastwood not directed but starred in the lead role as Mitchell Gant who's a resourceful and appropriately seasoned protagonist. The only other noteworthy performance that becomes slightly memorable is Freddie Jones as the plot requisite expert who stays behind the scenes.
The film is competently made and the flying scenes aren't bad. But it does play out like it was based off a spy novel a tad too much for its own …
