    Broken Arrow delivers the hippest action fun around. Travolta's "Dr. Strangelove" exit will blow you away. Ditto the movie.
  2. There are lapses in character motivation, and at times the film takes on a cartoony feeling. But if you worry about those things, you shouldn't be watching action movies. For its genre, Broken Arrow is a class act.

    Broken Arrow isn't the ultimate fusion of Hong Kong surrealism and Hollywood realism, but it points the way to nerve-shattering possibilities.

    Very possibly the most cliché-filled movie I have seen since Airplane or Naked Gun -- but this isn't supposed to be a comedy. Horrible actingVery possibly the most cliché-filled movie I have seen since Airplane or Naked Gun -- but this isn't supposed to be a comedy. Horrible acting synergizes with overused and predictable plot devices, and cheap, tawdry, slow-mo camera shots of pilots saluting as they walk into the hangar for a wretched, camp, inaccurate military "thriller" that fails to deliver. Watch this movie if you want to see something pathetic and embarrassing. Full Review »

    Superb movie - great setting, creative action, tough ass characters, great music. This movie takes it all to the max - classified experimentalSuperb movie - great setting, creative action, tough ass characters, great music. This movie takes it all to the max - classified experimental stealth bomber, hijacking 2 warheads, bad guy so power tripping he's more into winning the challenge than surviving the mission... and If you see it, it can be blown up - bomber, helis, hummers, mineshaft, train-car, train. This is a uniquely head-strong action movie, and it's awesome. Full Review »
