Bat*21 (1988)

During the Vietnam War, a colonel's aircraft is shot down over enemy territory and a frantic rescue operation ensues.

Professionally produced and well-played straightforward war drama, more centered on suspense than any political implications.

Halliwell**: "Effective and suspenseful drama of the muddle and moral expediencies of war, based on a true story."

Maltin***: "Taut, compelling film, based on a true story, with fine cting all around."
