    Tries hard but hasn't aged well.

    The film the spawned a television series starring Roy Scheider who is probably best known for his part in Jaws. A hightech Police Helicopter patrols the skies of Los Angeles

    Ha,a terrible example of a chaotic script gone bad.An averagely made film,out of the huge number of productions specifically made for the "legendary" U.S. 80's of action-packed thrillers and methodical collisions.It's not really horrible.The unbelievably disjoint theory of helicopters conquering the skies is a truly weak point,no human contains a decent storyline and even if it's not measured as Badham's late failures e.g. Nick of Time,it still was a film with potential.

    High tech action yarn with fine acting by Scheider, Oates and Stern with McDowell playng a perfect sneering baddie. Cool dogfights with a bit of humor thrown in..this is one thrilling ride
