Firefox came along in the early eighties in a time where we saw super hi-tec vehicals galore. ie Knight Rider, Streethawk, Blue Thunder and Airwolf but Firefox has to be said is the ultimate. The Mig 31 kitted out in the latest advanced technology with mind recognition weapons system(In Russian of course) has to be the best idea of them all. The previous hi-tec creations would be left as burning circuit boards compared to the might of the Russian born fighter.
Clint Eastwood directs and stars in this 80`s classic and i personally think is kind of underrated. If ever there was a movie that needed a remake then this would be it. The special effects have aged quite badly and although similar to the original Star Wars films it hasnt been done aswell as the george Lucas trilogy. Its a shame really because this film has been well directed and creates tension and thrills at every turn. Dont ask me who would make the best director for a remake or even a sequel but he would have to be good. We wouldnt want another Top Gun and definitely not another Stealth, but it would make a great opportunity to get this film back to its shining glory as we dream of flying the ultimate, most advanced jet fighter in the world.
