Overview

Producer/director/star Clint Eastwood takes his sweet time getting Firefox started. Eastwood plays Mitchell Gant, a past-his-prime U.S. pilot, smuggled into the Soviet Union to steal a new Russian supersonic fighting plane. Fortunately the KGB men are as burnt out as Gant, enabling him to abscond with the plane with the greatest of ease. The rest of the film is a protracted chase, pitting Gant against scores of impersonal MIG pilots. Based on a novel by Craig Thomas.

I highly recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in a story of twisted loyalties.A mark for just how far people are willing to go to get what they want.Shows how small one is when compared to the larger picture.

Clint Eastwood is a personal fav actor/director of mine. I've seen a good majority of his movies. When watching this one recently, it seemed to me like it was one I'd seen at least part of once upon a time, because parts of it seemed somewhat familiar to me, but I couldn't quite place whether I'd seen the whole thing or not. If I had, it was probably when I was a kid. Regardless, for it's time, I thought this was a very cool movie. Eastwood both acts and directs in this one...and does a dang fine job of it too, I might add. This is a pretty awesome action movie for starters, but it also plays out a lot like a secret agent movie, in the sense that he has to sneak into Russian under different aliases, meet up with certain contacts, and eventually penetrate a Russian base to steal a secret aircraft. Some of it was pretty intense. There were several supporting actors, too, that I have not seen in a whole lot before that I recall, but I knew them very well from roles in movies like Star Wars, Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit. The whole cast did pretty well in this, and it was very enjoyable. If you are into action & suspense, then definitely check this one out if you have never seen it!
