Surface To Air
13 August 2018 | by rjaywallace1See all my reviews

Not a classically great movie, but far from the worst I've ever seen. Similar to British heroic wartime movies of the 40s, but updated with lots of great scenes of jet combat, modern military aircraft, carrier-based troops and military procedures. Likely the procedures were not exactly as rendered, but told well enough to tell an entertaining story. The action is steady and I, who bore easily, was not bored. Worth an hour of your afternoon. - Ralph
