Movie Info

They have been trained to meet danger head-on, to execute vital strategic maneuvers while flying at breathtaking speeds. But after a series of fatal accidents, a close-knit squadron of male Navy pilots begins to splinter-and becomes the focus of a criminal investigation. As a government agent digs to uncover the cause of the accidents, two of the pilots engage in a secret, forbidden relationship. Their affair is exposed...and the squadron is engulfed by an incendiary scandal that will challenge each pilot's notions of friendship, love, honor and courage. (c) Lionsgate

Critic Reviews for Burning Blue

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6)

Top guns in love struggle against institutional homophobia in a tone deaf melodrama well past its sell-by date.

This shockingly amateurish film evokes memories of "Making Love," the Arthur Hiller film about a married man coming to terms with his homosexuality.

The script, by Mr. Greer and Helene Kvale, rolls along with lifeless, profoundly unimaginative dialogue ...

Earnest but terribly ham-fisted ...

What can any actor do with dialogue like, "We are warriors paid to defend this country, not spill our guts and frolic in the daisies."

Audience Reviews for Burning Blue

½

After a couple of fatal accidents, a squad of navy pilots comes under investigation. A government agent assigned to the case exposes 2 of the pilots secret affair. The case seems sure to cause major scandal and rips apart trust and friendship. Set in pre Don't Ask, Don't Tell days, this sappy melodrama feels very dated. The DADT act and it's later repeal are just footnotes in the credits. It's earnest in thought, but the resulting film is a Hallmark daytime drama. Weak in execution, not very passionate and woefully ham-fisted. There is no need to make a gay Top Gun. Tony Scott did it in 1986.
