About the Movie

They have been trained to meet danger head-on, to execute vital strategic maneuvers while flying at breathtaking speeds. But after a series of fatal accidents, a close-knit squadron of male Navy pilots begins to splinter—and becomes the focus of a criminal investigation. As a government agent digs to uncover the cause of the accidents, two of the pilots engage in a secret, forbidden relationship. Their affair is exposed…and the squadron is engulfed by an incendiary scandal that will challenge each pilot's notions of friendship, love, honor, and courage.

Burning Blue

What a surprise, didn't know what to expect and LOVED it!!!! A cross between TopGun and Broke Back Mtn that moves faster it's a story about relationships that opened my eyes about the injustice of discrimination in our military. Entertaining and powerful, this could be the sleeper hit of the year!

Breath taking movie

This movie is absolutely incredible. I'm so glad that dadt has been lifted and we can now serve openly. I feel that this movie still hits it right on the head, as we still have some warriors in the military who still hide in fear of persecution from their careers. Great story line, very heart breaking movie

What a pleasant surprise.

After browsing the iTunes trailers to see what was new I stubbled on Burning Blue. I thought it was well done. It has a good production value unlike a lot of movies that have gay content. The acting was good. Not great but believable. I have to say I was very surprised and pleased with this movie. Well worth watching.
