    Don't let the name fool you! This is one of the worst "movies" I've ever seen. Most of it is just stock footage of jet planes flying around and refueling. The parts with the characters barely has a plot, seriously nothing really happens, if there was something exciting going on, they didn't want you to know it. I even watched this on Mystery Science Theater 3000, and it was still hard to watch all the way through! Stay away from this one.

    With a name like Starfighters, it has to be good! Hahahahahahaha no. All the reviews for this film are spot-on! This movie was a whooole lot of nothing. They fly planes. Again and again and continuously. There's some really boring dating involved. A concerned father. A lot of refueling. I'm not sure exactly why this film was made. It seems like an excess of plane footage made into some sort of cohesive film. They must have had connections because I can't imagine someone utilizing a budget large enough for airplanes and jets on such a lackluster premise. I would never call it a "blazing adventure". I think whoever made the cover art for this film was being ironic. Or perhaps he never saw the film.
