Ice-T stars as a naval pilot who fakes his own death and winds up working on the wrong side of the law in South American. He steals a stealth fighter from a U.S. military base and uses it to bomb foreign military installations. A naval officer is then assigned to stop the bomb-crazed madman and return stealth fighter. This is quite good B-class action movie and Ice-T proves that he is familiar with this kind of roles. Action sequences has standard quality and you won't see anything really extraordinary, but if you are military aircraft fan you will be very pleased.
In this one is Erika Mandylors's wife who is uncomfortable with his job and believes that their relationship won't work. Mandylor then promises he's gonna quit as naval pilot, but unfortunately he HAS to take this LAST assignment (haven't I seen this before?). Erika appears very shorty (all the time I kept wondering how could Erika star in 5 movies in 1999, but now I see - she appears like 5 minutes in each of them) so there's not time to start real acting...
