Our Score
Given the level of his achievement since, it's hard to remember that in his early career as a director, Clint Eastwood delivered up one or two boring and emotionless films - The Rookie and The Eiger Sanction to name but two - and this violent Cold War affair is hard going for even the most dedicated of fans. Eastwood plays a disillusioned flier who is sent across the Iron Curtain to steal a new Russian jet and bring it back home. The supporting Britpack (Warren Clarke, Freddie Jones, Ronald Lacey) hams it up for all it's worth, but, while there are some decent flying sequences, Eastwood's heart doesn't appear to be in it.

Summary

A former US Air Force pilot comes out of retirement for a top-secret mission - to go undercover behind the Iron Curtain and steal a hi-tech Soviet fighter plane that is invisible to radar and equipped with a thought-controlled weapons system. Cold War action adventure, directed by and starring Clint Eastwood. With Freddie Jones, David Huffman and Warren Clarke.
