Flight of the intruder (the movie)

We’ve all read the book (right?!), and now I’ve seen the movie as well.
Made in 1991. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0099587/?fr=c2l0ZT1kZnxteD0yMHxzZz0xfGxtPTIwMHx0dD1vbnxwbj0wfHE9ZmxpZ2h0IG9mIHRoZSBpbnRydWRlcnxodG1sPTF8bm09b24_;fc=1;ft=1

I must say it was better then I had expected, pretty good flight scenes, and mostly following the book (as far as I can remember, it’s been a while since I read it).
I’d rate it as a 4 (out of 5 possible). :slight_smile:

The book is superb so I´ll consider the movie as well then. If I can find it, that is.

I found it at a place selling out DVD’s, VHS and CD’s cheap. If you pass through Umeå, pop in and I’ll lend it to you.

I have just started reading the book two days ago. It had been sitting on the shelf for a while because my mum brought it for me and I looked at the front cover and thought it was some sci-fi book :rolleyes:

Now I have gotten in to it (6th chapter) I must say I am liking it more and more :slight_smile:


Aha! But have you played the video game? :slight_smile:

No, but I read about it, but never actually saw it. Not sure what platforms it was available on.

AtariST, Amiga, DOS
I believe you can get it at The Underdogs :slight_smile:

I got the book when i bought the computer game, at the time it was a great game probably awfully dated now. The film was a bit of a let down compared to the book but some good action scenes.

The movie’s director it’s a guarantee himself. I strongly advice you to see ALL other movies directed by John Milius:

  • Big Wednesday
  • Farewell to the King (a really great movie talking about war and friedship)
  • Red Dawn
  • The wind and the Lion
  • Dillinger
  • Conan the Barbarian

By the way: he is also the screenplay writer os some others “small” movies, such as “Apocalipse Now” (directed by Coppola), “Geronimo an american legend”, (directed by Walter Hill), Jeremiah Johnson (directed by Sidney Pollack), Magnum Force (directed by Ted Post), “Jaws” (directed by Steven Spielberg), “Extreme Prejudice” (directed by Walter Hill), “Clear and present danger” (directed by Philip Noice)
