Movie Info

Rather short on plot line interest, the hang-gliding and beautiful Greek locations help to mediate this deficiency somewhat. Essentially, it's a movie about a group of hang-gliders who get involved in a political kidnapping conspiracy.

Audience Reviews for Sky Riders

One of the most overlooked action/suspense films. Terrorists in the seventies? Hang glider action is terrific. [img][/img] Robert Culp left, James Coburn right Sky Riders is a 1976 American action film directed by Douglas Hickox and starring James Coburn, Susannah York and Robert Culp. A woman and her children are kidnapped in Athens and held in a mountain-top monastery as hostages by a revolutionary terrorist movement. A rescue operation is mounted using hang gliders. [img][/img] The kidnappers are terrorists SEE the trailer here for a good look, but the movie itself is sharper visuals than the trailer: SEE the entire film here: [img][/img] Hang gliders are shown extensivly in the film and to great effect NOTES: 1 The rescue sequences were filmed in Meteora in Greece where the finale of the later James Bond film For Your Eyes Only was set. 2 Film's producer Sandy Howard and Terry Morse Jr. were imprisoned in Greece for an explosion on the set of Sky Riders, when a Greek electrician died. They had to bribe Greek officials so the crew member responsible would not be imprisoned by the military regime.
