  • redunbeck's rating of the film Flight of Black Angel

    A surprisingly effective, genuinely gripping made-for-cable movie from the nineties, featuring William O'Leary as an ace Air Force pilot who goes mad with religious fervor and takes off with a nuke so he can wipe sin city itself, Las Vegas, off the map. O'Leary's performance is terrific, internalizing the character's mental collapse and bringing true terror to his rampage, and the practical SFX are fantastic.
