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... Written by
Early in the movie, the crew looks for debris on the flight deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln. This is known as the FOD (Foreign Object Debris) walk, and it is an essential flight safety procedure on all aircraft carriers. Ingesting even a small piece of debris can cause jet engine failure, endangering the plane and its crew. See more »
The USS Abraham Lincoln is located in the Philippine Sea. The three Talons and the EDI fly westwards, to Myanmar. It is daylight in the Philippine Sea but nighttime in Myanmar. Although it is conceivable that they were flying from dawn westwards to where it was still just before dawn, there were a lot of people and traffic on the street, which would have indicated that it was early evening in Myanmar.

Lt. Ben Gannon:
Look, we have things those computers can never have like instincts and feelings and moral judgment. You can call me old-fashioned, you can call it whatever you want but I just don't think that in war the action should ever be divorced from the consequences.

After the end of the credits, we go back to Korea and see the wreckage of EDI. We pass through most of the wreckage until we stop on EDI's central core. Suddenly, the red eye begins to glow..... See more »
Let me start out be stating that this is absolutely not the movie of the year. But I rather enjoyed it anyway because of the endless amount cliché lines, the way you can't really tell if it's actually meant to be a comedy or if it's supposed to be the action/scifi-movie of the year. The perfect movie for the guy or gal who knows nothing about computers, chemistry or the air force, and couldn't give a rats ass what's wrong or right. The acting isn't much worse than what you'd expect from a high school class, but don't expect not to be offended by some terrible lines and acting jobs. Warning: This is not a movie anyone should try to think about. Doing so will make you want to throw up. Do not think about how the facts have been messed up. Do not think about how the plot must have been written in the 80's and most of all: Do not think of admitting to your friends you watched this movie and liked it. All you have to do is fall back into the seat and enjoy watching things blow up for an hour and 55 minutes.
