Review

Rating: 1 out of 5.

The stolen stealth plane in this straight-to-DVD Steven Seagal thriller may be invisible, but it's harder to disguise just how familiar the story is - especially if you've seen Clint Eastwood in Firefox. Seagal stars as a former US pilot who's shipped off to Afghanistan to stop rebels from using an experimental plane and its biological payload on American targets. Lumbering through the proceedings with little enthusiasm, the aikido master mumbles most of his lines and lets the rest be dubbed by actors who sound nothing like him. Even the aerial dog-fight scenes don't offer much in the way of fun, as the recycled stock footage of military aircraft is so poorly patched together that it's impossible to tell what's going on. A nonsensical lesbian interlude is inserted at the halfway point in a hilariously hopeless attempt to help the film gain altitude. The result is a trashy, badly made mess.
