Editorial Reviews

Two pilots go against the rule book in a bid to win the war in Vietnam in this speculative military drama. Lieutenant Jake Grafton (Brad Johnson) is a U.S. Navy pilot stationed aboard an aircraft carrier after the death of his one-time flying partner Morgan McPherson (Christopher Rich), who perished during a recent, ill-advised mission. Lt. Grafton, who has become cynical about the current state of military affairs, is convinced that if the war were left to the soldiers rather than the politicians overseeing the Pentagon, United States victory would be swift and assured. Grafton shares this opinion with Virgil Cole (Willem Dafoe), a supremely confident new pilot under his command, and together they commandeer an A-6 Bomber, known as "The Intruder,” for an unauthorized bombing raid against Hanoi.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even if you don't like Danny Glover May 4, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Excellent Flick adapted from the Novel. It was great before but blue ray makes it that much better. You can see every rivet in the intruders. This is more realistic than Top Gunbut every bit as good.

5.0 out of 5 stars A6 Intruder February 26, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Although there were many errors in the filming of this movie, it was well done for the budget they had. The A6 Intruder is a fantastic aircraft and it is well shown in this movie, both in action and carrier operations. A must for aviation fans and Vietnam era buffs. In blu-ray it's even better!!!

"Flight of the Intruder" was released in 1991 and directed by John Milius, written by Stephen Coonts (writer), and had a great cast: Danny Glover, Willem DaFoe, and Brad Johnson; also, a fine supporting cast of well known others (Ving Rhames, Tom Sizemore, and John Corbett (from Northern Exposure). This wartime action flick with an underlying morality theme typifies a fairly common attitude from the military in those years, especially during the end of that drawn-out Viet Nam engagement. In this case, Jake Grafton (Brad Johnson) who questions his orders based on naval intelligence bombing targets of less importance at the sacrifice of bombing the real McCoy (in this movie, a missile farm in 'downtown' Hanoi). Hence, a constructive cynicism from the PIC (pilot-in-command) perspective in tandem with his BN (bombardier navigator), Virgil Cole (Willem Dafoe). Eventually, Cole concurs with Grafton's nagging assessment and do the unthinkable: light up "Sam City" (where North Vietnam stored it missile complex). Their decision to go rogue gets the two naval officers in trouble with the admiralty, whose potential court martial turns out to be a redeemable exoneration by the State Department. Hence, NCF (No Charges Filed) for taking matters into their own hands. The narrative of the movie is somewhat anticipatory, yet the usual wrongs of this awful skirmish (and it was not officially a "war") are at least made right in a feel-good type of ending to a feel-lousy conflict that accounts for the sobering reality given the outcome (i.e., America came up short). That being said, "Flight of the Intruder " pries open a small door to that big, messy political affair, when America finally took the gloves off and conducted missions that proved to be effective (in the short run).

5.0 out of 5 stars Old salt May 12, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A must have movie for a 60's era sailor or a Stephen Coonts fan. It departs in several areas from the book but is still excellent fare. Lots of real flying (I hate modern computer generated stuff).

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent movie if you love military aviation. August 19, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I saw pieces of this movie once as a teenager, and purchased it in Blu-Ray here on Amazon to re-live it in full HD setup. I have to say that time has truly been kind to this movie, and it's an instant masterpiece in my collection. I own almost every military aviator movie and was missing this one. I am glad I own it now. A great movie that will capture your interest in the characters as well as the aircraft they use. It's nice to re-live the honest, whole sum personalities people had back in the eighties and nineties and sucks that society has deteriorated to the point that it reflects in movies now as well. This film is a great nostalgia trip through the Vietnam era and possesses an outstanding cast as well as some noticable faces of big stars that were then performing early roles. Pick up a copy and enjoy the ride! A+++

3.0 out of 5 stars Bold French not welcome ! May 2, 2004
This movie deserves 4 stars but if you live in Canada the French is forced on you, so the other star was held back because the text in English @ the 1st of the movie had a French counterpart in the "blackbar" that was yellow & 3x the size of the English,was it possible to have an option to turn this off as it was very distracting ! Otherwise it would have gotten the 4 stars that it deserved.

4.0 out of 5 stars What I Remember June 26, 2012
By Nick B
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I grew up with this movie, along with other things like Robot Jox and Top Gun. It's still the same war movie with two sailors feeling that what they do is pointless and gets men killed in vain. It was good to get to see this movie again, and it's definitely for the right region as it states.
