Fri May 20, 2005 4:07 am

Well, if i have to judge by the poster, it looks quite lame... what do you think about it? More feedback anyone?

Here's the basic plot according to imdb.com

In the near future, the Navy develops a fighter jet piloted by an artificial intelligence computer. The jet is placed on an aircraft carrier in the Pacific to learn combat manuevers from the human pilots aboard. But when the computer develops a mind of its own, it's the humans who are charged with stopping it before it incites a war...

*Yawn* On the other side of it though, the F/A-37 Talon featured in the movie looks interesting...fugly, but interesting.

Yea i saw the pictures of that plane before on snopes.com. The plot is a little corny-it sounds a bit like the 1982 flick "FireFox".

Does not exist, who's to say if there will be an F/A-37, especially after the DoD in its infinite idiocy skipped a ton of numbers to make the JSF the F-35 (y'know...24-34? What happened to those?), and of course it's probably only a matter of time before that becomes the F/A-35.  banghead 

Anyway no...no F/A-37 in the inventory. The USN let them haul the prop aboard the Abraham Lincoln and shoot scenes there.

I can see it now. You're in a dogfight with an enemy and about to collide right into him. You order the aircraft to pull up and all of a sudden you hear from the computer:

"I'm afraid I can't do that, Dave."

All I can say is make sure you're carrying a spare pair of clean underwear.  Wink
