Movie Reviews By Bil Antoniou

Broken Arrow (1996)

JOHN WOO

Bil’s rating (out of 5):  BBB.5.  USA, 1996.  , Mark Gordon Productions, WCG Entertainment Productions.  Screenplay by .  Cinematography by .  Produced by , , .  Music by .  Production Design by .  Costume Design by .  Film Editing by ,, .  

This exciting adventure stars  and John Travolta as bomber pilots whose flying mission goes awry and the top-secret weapons they are carrying go missing. Or do they? It seems Travolta might not be the good guy we all thought he was, and having been passed over for a recent job advance has angered him enough to take the nuclear weapons hostage. Now Slater’s got a limited amount of time to save the bombs, the girl () and the world before Travolta tries to blow everything up. Loads of fun, energetically directed by John Woo (and not as overdone as his next year’s Face/Off would be), and benefiting from committed performances.
