An ex-flyer who is a distress victim from Vietnam experience is ordered back into military duty to head a secret mission. His assignment is to sneak into Russia and steal a Soviet warplane which is far more advanced than any other air machine being used by the NATO alliance.
Craig Thomas's novel "Firefox"
The previous reviewer is mistaken. The movie is based on the book of the same name by Craig Thomas. The movie follows the novel very well, a good movie from the 80's.
Great Movie That Defined An Age
The MIG-38 is awesome, the portrayal of an age where two great nations did not trust each other is felt, and the combination of the two with the stealing of the MIG is timeless! Great movie!
One of the best
This has to be one of my favorite Clint Eastwood movies. It is a close second behind The Unforgiven.
