Underrated and under-appreciated. (by starringdash)
I can't understand why TopGun is so hyped yet nobody has even heard about this movie? Sure its not as glamorous or stylish but it is far more realistic. Perhaps some people just don't consider the old A-6 Intruder bomber as glamorous as an F-14 Tomcat fighter? Unlike Topgun, this movie is faithful to facts and the footage is much much better. The combat scenes are brilliant and the way they show the intensity of anti-aircraft artillery and machine gun fire from the ground really illustrates the difficulties of air warfare. Also unlike Topgun, where the MiGs were fake aircraft and <more>
really American F-5s, the MiGs in this movie were real MiGs. So were the SA-2 Divinia SAMs that were fired by the thousands. The combat and dogfight scenes were far more realistic than topgun even if they looked a bit less flashy.This movie is a real gem and a must see for anybody interested in aviation or war related movies. If you are clueless about aviation and just want a no brain entertainer, stick to topgun.
This movie touch me in a way only a veteran could feel (by reno_man40)
When I saw this movie for the first time it seemed like Deja vu. the first part of the movie was like I was reliving a part of my life when I was aboard the Aircraft Carrier U.S.S. Saratoga CV-60 in 1985. The ship in the movie was the U.S.S. Independence CV-62 and it's the same ship in design as the Saratoga. When I was on that ship a pilot died suddenly when his A-7 exploded on approach and it was caused by a bomb arming and exploding on its own. We had an memorial service at the same place on the ship and it really blew my mind. From then on I have admired that movie and have <more>
watched it several times. To this day I get really choked up. Hey, it's not as well made as the Godfather but it isn't a bad movie either. But I feel it deserves better then a 5.3. Hey veterans out there, start voting.
Very good Vietnam war/action movie that is surprisingly very under rated probably because the story was very pro military and very gung ho which most audiences in the U.S. do not want to see in a Vietnam war movie.I on the other hand have no such limited prejudices and welcome this movie's unique approach to that war because even though I dis-agree with the way that war was fought,I still can enjoy seeing the warriors of that war have fun with their combat encounters and the price they pay for the rush they get.That selfish aspect of the Navy warriors depicted here so well really confused <more>
the mass audience who usually expect an uncomplicated formula where in if it is a Vietnam war movie,it is supposed to have an atmosphere of tremendous losses to the U.S. side and a U.S. military who do not like war and do not look forward to any battle rush at all.Only scenes of trembling,cowering soldiers who want to be at home with mama.Well,sorry to say,that narrow minded and limited way of looking at things surely blurred their rating of this movie which had great cinematography,directing,screenplay,script and story,coupled by good special effects and attention to detail on top of that!The movie has a right to be gung ho because there certainly were gung ho soldiers as well in that war!They may not admit it but the nay sayers of this movie put this movie down because of that gung ho atmosphere.I know movies and I know when people are unfairly under rating a movie only due to unpopular trends or formulas.Time to FREE YOUR MINDS!Yes,this movie has it's flaws,like average acting performances and lack of originality due to it having a feelof being a modern remake of those 1950's Korean war movies,but still,this movie all in all deserves at least an imdb 8.One of the top 20 war movies of all time in my book,and I have seen a lot........
Perhaps I should say "A really great movie *if you like planes*". This is not repeat not a chick flick.Flight of the Intruder is based on the book with the same name by Stephen Coonts. As usual, the book is much better than the movie; it's well worth the read Flying an A-6 Intruder may not be quite as glamorous as the "Fighter pukes", but Jake Grafton the principal character wouldn't swap it.But when on a pointless "toothpick mission" Blowing up a bunch of trees Jake's bombardier is shot and fatally wounded by small arms fire, Jake becomes <more>
disillusioned, and angry at the political restrictions on the war.With the aid of his new bombardier, "Tiger" Cole, Jake decides to bomb an unauthorised target to vent his frustration at being forced to fight the war with one hand tied behind their backs.There is quite a bit of original footage in this movie, which is really great to see.. a lot of more modern movies just plaguarise footage from earlier movies, which really detracts from them when you're going "Hey! That shot was from Flight of the Intruder!"I give Flight of the Intruder a 10/10. It's well made and very enjoyable.
BRAD JOHNSON AND MORGAN MCPHERSON IN THE SAME COCKPIT (by xbrad68)
FLIGHT OF THE INTRUDER reminds me of the ODYSSEY by HOMER. Both books take the reader on a quest. Stephen Coonts is a gifted writer. He was once stationed on the Aircraft Carrier USS INDEPENDENCE CV-62 like his book is set on the INDY in 1972. Director John Milius RED DAWN makes yet another anti-communist movie about American A-6 INTRUDER Pilots during the Vietnam war. The talented Danny Glover plays Commander Frank 'Dooke' Camparelli an African-Italian-American and squadron commander. Christopher Rich plays Morgan 'MORG' McPherson who is the bombadier for Lt Jake 'COOL <more>
HAND' Grafton played by Brad Johnson. McPherson is killed by small arms fire on a useless bombing mission that leads Grafton to doubt whether the bombing runs are worth it. Lt Cmdr Virgil 'TIGER' Cole smoothly played by Willem Dafoe replaces 'MORG' and together the new A-6 team dreams of attacking Hanoi to the tune of DOWNTOWN. Rosanna Arquette is the perfect Navy wife as Callie. I gave FLIGHT OF THE INTRUDER a 9 out of 10.
" Whatever happens, it's safe to say, your career in the Navy is over " (by thinker1691)
The War in Viet-Nam was a mess. For America it lasted better than ten years and left the bodies of over 58,000 plus dead scattered over the backwaters of the country and spilled over onto the shores of the U.S. Yes the war did in fact fracture this country and in many ways, left it wounded beyond repair. This movie called " The Flight of the Intruder " brings to light the skills, courage, and integrity of the Navy pilot. The story, one of many from that era, relates the decision of pilot Lt. Jake Grafton Brad Johnson and his bombardier Lt. Cmdr. Virgil Cole Willem Dafoe who <more>
implement a scheme to take the war to the enemy. By defying their main authority, they fly their single Intruder into North Viet-Nam and drop their bombs not on the dark jungles of that country but in the stock-pile area known as ' Sam City. " Upon their return, they are arrested and brought before the Naval Board of Inquiry. Their commanding Officer, Cmdr. Frank Camparelli Danny Glover warned both men not to get too involved with personal losses, now they both stand a good chance of going to prison. The film is an excellent tribute to the officers and men of the US Navy and with all the action and combat drama seen in the movie, there is little doubt this movie will become a war time Classic. ****
This is one of the few films Millius has directed that pass the quality test.I saw it again last night.Loved the acting cast,the story was ok and it had a meaningful theme.How American military let many of their best pilots die because of uncareful planning and reckless thinking.I was surprised by Brad Johnson,i didnt think he was such a good actor before i saw him here.He did well.Glover was at his best and Dafoe was ok too,although he has had better parts.But all in all,this is en enjoyable movie.Not least if you are a fan of Rosanna Arquette,like me.She looked wonderful here and acted the <more>
same.The movie was also one of the first for many good actors like Sizemore,Rhames,John Corbett.I dare to say this one deserves a clear 7 and a half.
This review is quick... 5.3 ??? (by kv-106-341224)
I mean, this movie is pure awesomeness... 5.3 ... gimme a break... I mean big 2011/2012 BS prods are straight ahead over 7 or 8 and Flight of the intruder sticks to 5.3 ???!!! This must be a joke.1 - Distribution : Awesome, 2 - Story-line : Awesome,3 - Rhythm : Awesome,4 - Prod : Awesome, 5 - Fx ; Fantastic 1991 - CG enthusiast / pro - sorry - speaking .Those ratings are only meaningful on a sociological point of view but on a pure cinematographic one... Unless we are in a world of pure "Authors" movies addict...No need to cite/compare with tons of very poor movies rated over <more>
6...One good point is that unfair ratings make diffusion rights cheap, this is why we can afford to take time in writing that desperate reviews...I can't agree with this mark.
It's a good movie. it's a pretty good movie. It's a very good Vietnam movie, good acting, good technique, good good good and good, some little flaw but nothing to serious. It's good, really worth watching, I'd like to watch this movie again after 2 times. Top Gun is nothing compare to this for me, in fact Top Gun is stupid love movie. So little love story in this movie, only men in action. How could this movie just get 5.3 rating on IMDb, maybe too many Bollywood lover gave the rate. Brad Jhonson should played by another actor I think, don't really like him but he gave <more>
his best in this movie. What else to say it's a very good movie!
