X-15 is a good film about the project of the same name. This is a well acted film that is fairly accurate to the real tests, as it was made the same period of the X-15 tests. Richard Donner directs this film, and delivers an entertaining drama that grabs your attention. The film is quite interesting, but should have dropped the romance sub plot, which I felt was not necessary considering that the story itself is entertaining enough. However, it works well as a drama, and adventure film, and it is one of those forgotten films that needs to be seen again. This is also noted as one of the first few Bronson films, but unlike his later work, this one is not an action/ vigilante film. X-15 is a must see for viewers interested in the story of the project. This isn't a classic by any means, but it most certainly is a worthwhile film to watch and it most certainly is a well shot picture for the time period. Donner would helm better films over the course of his career, but X-15 clearly shows the confidence of a director who knows how to tell an engaging story with a terrific cast at his disposal. Considering this is Richard Donner's directorial debut, X-15 is an accomplished picture that deserves to be rediscovered by genre fans. For what it is, it's an exhilarating, well directed film that tells an important story. The film has its flaws, but it works well due to a good script and a good cast. X-15 is not a film I would recommend to everyone, but for those interested in this project, give it a view, as it is a well crafted picture that is never dull or tiresome.
