NATO training secrets revealed
Can you believe this is the way we train NATO fighter pilots? The final scene of Blue Tornado involves the hero climbing a mountain. Col. Long (Dirk Benedict) has to climb this mountain to encounter the aliens. So, how does he prepare? He gets the aged father of his missing buddy to guide him. Col. Long lets the old man carry all the supplies in a huge pack. The old man also has the only ice axe. Col.Long just walks along following the old man. Just when you get feeling good and sorry for the tired old man, he slips and falls. It looks like a broken leg, and Col. Long is forced to leave the old man to spend the night alone on a narrow ledge. Does Col. Long provide first aid or pick up the pack or the ice axe? - No, he continues on his quest so he can get there before dark. I won't spoil the ending, but Col. Long does not have any emergency provisions when he faces it.
The rest of the movie is just as dumb, the unspecial effects are lame, and the acting is stiff. Don't miss this one if you possibly can.
