Warbirds (1989)

aka WarBirds

How bad is it? Cheap "Top Gun" knock-off, poorly done.
Should you see it? No.

Swedish subtitles weren't available on my copy.

I kind of feel sorry for Ulli Lommel; he proved he could make a good film with his first film and then there's been nothing but dreck since. This is the hoary plot of: pilot sent on mission (in this case, in a made-up Middle Eastern country), gets shot down and must be rescued. The film is so cheap that there's very little footage of planes flying - and stock footage is cheap - so cheap, in fact, that in one shot, a clock is PAINTED rather than getting a real clock. That being the best thing, you know this isn't much to see.
