  2. I saw Fighter Pilot: Operation Red Flag on the USS Lexington museum in Corpus Christi, TX. At first I thought it was one on the most beautiful films ever made. But, I noticed some Hollywood gimmickry was afoot. In the dogfight scene, the pursuing F-16 didn’t look right. Real dogfights are probably not that interesting in that computer guided missiles are fired many miles away so the aircraft never get that close. Also, in the live fire sequences, the bombs could not be seen and the explosions were too fiery. Wouldn’t the target tank (as well as the camera) be destroyed?

    Still, Fighter Pilot is an interesting film best seen at an IMAX theater with loud sound.

  3. Windows errors on me saying that it can’t acquire a content license on my home machine. I can play it on my laptop, but not on the machine attached to my big screen so it’s useless.

    They either need to give instructions on how to fix the problem, or stop using the horrid protection scheme.

  4. I’m watching the movie as I type this and I gotta say, I agree completely with Flightjunkie’s comments. I have an aviation background so of course I wasn’t expecting to learn anything new in an IMAX movie of all places but jeez, this film insults my intelligence. I was expecting *at least* some spiffy in-flight shots to show off my HD setup but I’m *extremely* disappointed to find that many, many of the shots have been tampered with in post-production. This consists of VERY apparent (to the educated eye!) insertions of green-screened cgi jets, bogus HUD shots, videogame-style AWACS graphics and really just green-screen effects galore. And to my friend that testified that the explosions are not fake, well okay they’re not CGI but you obviously have not seen what an A-10 can do to a tank in real life. Hint: It does more to a than toss a few pretty sparks into the air. SQUIBS! And dear god, enough with the obligatory flare shots! I have visions of the director sitting in his director’s chair acting out his favorite scene from Office Space and screaming, “Yes! Give me more FLARE! MORE FLARE!” Why they are using flare during close-range gun combat I’ll never know… Wait I do know, because the movie was directed and edited by morons and they think the audience doesn’t know the difference. The lighting, editing, general direction and “story” are in the usual flavor of IMAX Cheddar Cheese but that’s to be expected, and even forgiven if it contained some decent shots but it does not.

    The only cool part in the movie was the C-5 in-flight refueling; that’s something you don’t see everyday. Oh, and the cover photo is sorta neat. Ya I’m pretty sure that’s about it.

    In conclusion, unless you are 6 years old or know absolutely NOTHING about aviation or air combat, you are wasting your time and money. They gave this film such a Hollywood treatment that it ends up feeling like a Bruckheimer B-movie. You would be better served watching Top Gun. The IMAX guys have hit an all-time low. It ends up feeling like a horrible parody of the real thing and it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth. I give it 2 stars because I got it for cheap (well compared to other BD’s), it did in fact contain a film on the disc and hey, I should have known better. Joke’s on me! Very, very disappointing.

  5. I liked the power and technology. I dislike the notion that this power and technology is available to George Warmonger Bush for invasion into sovereign countries based on lies and deceipt.
