Dated but gripping
- Firefox review by JD
The essence is that our reluctant ace pilot hero (Clint) has to kidnap a highly advanced Russian air plane. Some of the Iron Curtain / KGB elements of the plot are dated. There is a strong Bond feeling about some scenes. The almost comic monologue as the pilot skims along at Mach 5. One is waiting for the corny pun at the end of the scene. The differences include no Gant girl, only 2 explosions and no arch villain. For these I think I prefer Firefox. The fight scenes and close misses are gripping and I recommend this old action thriller.
