A broken arrow is what the military calls a nuclear device that is lost. While this may be a bit frightening, maybe the fact that they have a term for it makes it even more scary!
Vic Deakins (John Travolta) and Riley Hale (Christian Slater) are expert pilots that have the honor of flying the B-3 Stealth Bomber. You guessed it, the bombers are carrying actual nuclear bombs! Well, things don’t go as planned as that would make for a boring movie.
Suspenseful. Unpredictable. The story line offers some surprising turn of events, some are predictable. Is it all a big accident or treacherous treason? The action will take you from planes to trains to humvees! Even though it is predictable, at times you will be on the edge of your seat with explosions and gunfights.
The language is poor and offensive. The violence is a bit too much. Viewers that enjoy military technology may particularly enjoy the planes (B-3 Stealth Bombers) used in this movie.
