During the last phase of the Vietnam War, a cocky young bomber pilot (Brad Johnson) struggles to get over his buddy’s death in combat. Desperate for some “payback,” he teams up with Cole (Willem Dafoe), a fearless flier on his third tour of duty, and the two men take part in an unauthorized bombing mission over Hanoi. Director John Milius isn’t using Vietnam to make any sort of ideological statement. He’s more concerned with exploring the emotions of fear, courage, mourning. Flight of the Intruder is slow and not very exciting, but for a Milius picture, there’s some real feeling in it.
