Broked Arrow

Yeah, this is an older movie, but, hey, I watch what I want to, and I had a hankering for this movie. Because it's great!

Deak and Hale are fighter pilots, only Deak is bored with his military career, so decides to steal two nukes and threaten the States with them. Because, hey, he's crazy. But Hale is a 'good guy', and so we get this big back and forth between Deak and his crew and Hale and a park ranger... and that is one of the things I love about this movie. Hale and Carmichael (played by one time couple Slater and Mathis), although there is definite near romantic overtones in their relationship, get through the movie without even kissing, let alone more! Ye gods, a male/female relationship that doesn't end in frantic sex! Take that, Speed!

And this has Travolta is his crazy mode. He doesn't care, just loves the role he's playing, just watch any of the scenes in which he is smoking.

As for the quotes, we start with "I don't know what's scarier, losing nuclear weapons, or that it happens so often there's actually a term for it." And there's the classic "Would you mind not shooting at the thermonuclear weapons?" Then there's the exchange "You're out of your mind." "Yeah. Ain't it cool?"

And I love the theme song. Nice piano tinkering, and heavy guitar strings.

This is a fun movie, definitely one to check out.
