Firefox (1982)

Clint Eastwood stars as Mitchell Gant whose job it is to steal a revolutionary new Soviet fighter plane called Firefox.

The idea is that Gant must steal the plane before it can be mass produced because it is potentially very dangerous to the West with its radar invisibility and thought-guided weapons system.

Gant manages to steal the plane against all the odds but then has to escape the second prototype Firefox which gives chase.

    Even as a child, this film made me very angry- if it had been the SOVIETS pinching a US 'plane then it would've been an outrage and a terrible crime, but when the Yanks do it to Russia then it's all justified and OK! Never mind all the international treaties this breaks in the process!

    Further to above, Clint Eastwood in the Pilot Gear just about to board the cockpit looked more impressive than the futuristic Plane itself.

    Clint Eastwood was as great as ever. However, the Plane Chase was quite artificial. The Plane also looked as if made of Cardboard. The Russians were horrendous. Anyway, a good movie altogether.
