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. Expand

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. Expand

Quite possibly one of the worst movies I've ever seen (right up there with MI:2 - another John Woo movie). I can't seem to fathom how people can enjoy this guys movies.

Broken Arrow is not an original movie, it's an action movie that's made to thrill audiences, not to leave them deep in thought. It manages to rise to the head of the pack thanks to great acting, directing and an excellent score.

2 U.S. army officers, Major Vic Deakins(John Travolta) and Captain Riley Hale(Christian Slater) are assigned to fly a jet plane carrying 2 live nukes to conduct a test. During the flight Deakins reveals his true intent, ejects the stunned Hale out of the plane, and releases the nukes before crashing it.

This comes to the alert of park ranger Terry Charmical(Samantha Mathis) who immediatly sets out to find what is going on. Once the nukes are dropped Col. Max Wilkins(Delroy Lindo) is faced with bringing down Deakins and right hand man turncoat soldier Arvid Kelly(Howie Long) with the help of pencil pusher Giles Prentice(Frank Whaley).

Travolta is great in an over the top but very entertaining role, and Slater does a good job as an action hero. Mathis is slightly miscast though, and should probably stick to her other hit films. Howie Long effectively plays Kelly with very little skill and no expierence, but his size helps give him on screen presence. Delroy Lindo is effective as the confident military officer, although Frank Whaley, despite being a good actor, is rather annoying in his role

All in all if your looking for a great way to spend almost two hours, then sit down and watch this movie. It's definately a movie worth watching several times over **** 1/2 out of *****
