    Synopsis


    Broken Arrow
    Hong Kong director John Woo's second U.S. film (his first was Hard Target) delivers a number of exciting action sequences but is let down by a credibility-straining plot. John Travolta plays Vic Deakins, an Air Force pilot on what is supposed to be a routine night flight mission with his co-pilot, the younger Riley Hale (Christian Slater), whom Deakins constantly kids for lacking the "will to win." Deakins is actually a traitor who crashlands their Stealth Bomber in Death Valley so that he can steal two nuclear warheads onboard and sell them to terrorists who plan to blackmail the government. Deakins meets up with his cohorts, who have been waiting in the park, while Hale survives and teams up with a young, attractive park ranger (Samantha Mathis) to foil Deakins's plans. Plenty of action ensues, with car chases, collapsing mine shafts, fights on burning trains, and even the underground detonation of a nuclear device. Despite the script's implausibilities and inconsistencies, Woo amply displays the expertise with action sequences and man-to-man conflict that has made his Hong Kong films cult favorites. ~ Don Kaye, Rovi

      Love this movie. Yeah, the fact that this is a John Woo action movie helps but this is classic John Travolta and over the top villainy! Love his character and his whacky acting in this. Quotable and entertaining throughout. The quality of the audio and video is slightly better than average but this is just some fun!

      'Broken Arrow' is by no means a bad film. It has some good action sequences and a fair storyline. It just doesn't stand out as an exceptional experience when compared to some other better films of the genre. Decent Blue-Ray release here, but might not be worth it considering the regular dvd is only $6.99.

      Car chases, collapsing mine shafts, fights on burning trains, and even the underground detonation of a nuclear device. These all sound like a fun movie but what this movie does actionwise, doesn't make up for in acting and plot.

      Excellent race against time action movie. Travolta and Slater terrific at various combative events. Howie Long - Hall of Fame pro football player from Villanova - was terrific.

      I haven't see this movie in a few years, but remembered liking it and wanted to own it for my video library. It has alot of action and it's always fun to watch John Travolta as a bad guy.
