Storyline

A top US Air Force fighter pilot decides that his call sign of Black Angel means that he's a messenger of God. Freely committing murders as he goes, he steals a nuclear weapon and his plane. Taking a family hostage to help him, he works on bypassing the bomb's security lockouts so he can use it on the most sinful of American cities. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

Gordon tells Gaiter, at gunpoint, to change the serial number on his BDU in the computer to "AF-463908-SW," but we see on her screen a pop-up dialog showing it being changed from "AF25828-BDU" to "AF46398-BDU." Meanwhile, in the background window of her screen, highlighting and out-of-sequence serial numbers seem to show that "AF25828-BDU" and "AF46398-SW" have been interchanged. See more »

A real surprise
6 August 1998 | by Wild-2See all my reviews

I rented this movie one night just because I had nothing better to do. To my surprise, I found it entertaining. I will not tell the plot, but this is a pretty good action/thriller. The colour on it is pretty dull, but the movie has some good special effects and explosions. B-
