BRO­KEN AR­ROW (1996) ONE, 8.30PM, M, AC­TION

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

In the world of ac­tion and stunts, Hong Kong di­rec­tor John Woo is one of the best. His work is so well-timed and chore­ographed that at times the stunts make you gasp with their beauty. So it is with Bro­kenAr­row. It is an ac­tion movie through and through. The best idea is to for­get the plot – which fol­lows two fighter pi­lots, Deakins (John Tra­volta) and Hale (Chris­tian Slater, above) who are on a rou­tine run when Deakins turns traitor and steals the two nu­clear war­heads be­ing car­ried on board, hold­ing them ran­som while the government tries to re­trieve them – be­cause it’s ob­vi­ous the film­mak­ers did, and just ad­mire the stunts. ★
