I have to say that I had high hopes for this film and, fortunately, I was not disappointed. It is inevitable that comparisons with Top Gun will be made (after all, both films are about fighter pilots facing off against a communist aggressor, and to be sure there are similarities (one of the pilots does a flyby on the tower etc). Yet, for all the similarities, this film does have its own unique identity and is certainly much more emotional than Top Gun.

To summarise:

If you liked Top Gun and / or films to do with planes, you will probably like this film.

A great film about a pilot with an 'attitude problem' who gets sent to a frontline South Korean F15 combat unit as punishment for a reckless maneuver during an air display.

The film is in two elements; one about the pilots and crews and their relationships, which gets a bit slow at times but does build up the character's personalities, and the other the combat and flight sequences, which merge CG and real flight footage well. There are a couple of times when the flight parts verge on the ridiculous, especially some questionable inner-city aerobatics, but it quite frankly looks good! (and looks similar to the latest in the Ace Combat video game series)

The back story about a coup at a North Korean base could have been developed a bit more, and assumes the audience knows about the tensions between North and South Korean.

Overall very good, good acting, strong characters, great action scenes, and a few elements referencing other movies but done tongue-in-cheek.

(Should also mention it's English subtitles as it's a Korean film)

It was all in Japanese subtitles and after 2 minutes I had had enough. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless they were Japanese.

Utter rubbish. A ridiculously implausible opening sequence marks the begining of a film that, unsurprisingly, it only gets worse thereafter.

The title say it all. Though I must stress that despite its cheesiness in places it was an enjoyable film in a sub Top-Gun kind of way. It was 90 minutes of my life I'll never have again , but I'm glad I watched it.

Black Eagle has an engaging storyline that runs throughout the film, with loads of superior action-packed aerial combat (dogfighting), which has been shot/CGI with nice camera angles to enhance the intense action both in the cockpit and surrounding. That combined with a romantic element and some light supporting humour, this film seriously outshines Top Gun. Although there are some parallels (fighter jets, romance) with both films, Black Eagle delivers a more satisfying experience with the air-to-air combat and wins it for me!

This is in no way anywhere near Top Gun, I had to watch 55 seconds of the opening scene to determine this when the pilot shuts off his engine somehow managing to get instantaneous supersonic speed 6 feet before hitting the water.

To summarise don't both, waster of time.
