      Audience Member This was a decent TV-movie about US government reaction to the question of air force personnel coming across UFOs during routine flight tests. It is well-acted and constructed, and at 71 minutes, doesn't overstay its welcome. Though I haven't been the biggest Glenn Ford fan over the years, through seeing more of his work, my appreciation and fondness had been slowly but steadily climbing, and it was a decent, fun look at pre-'Starsky and Hutch' and pop-music-success David Soul and pre-'Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman' Greg Mullavey, as well as other decent, recognizable talent from the 70's American crime/police shows and TV-movies I watched growing up here in Canada. Former actor and later Directors Guild of America vice president and president director Taylor, a mainstay of American TV-movies and shows from 1965-2004 (whom I know most from his work on the original 'Star Trek' series) utilizes a documentary-style approach for the film, complete with military words and times appearing on the screen and narration. It's a serviceable method, though at the very end he undermines it, showing the usual 'All characters and events are fictitious...' blurb...had he not, I would have given it 7/10. It's a decent watch and makes you wonder just how governments around the world have reacted to abnormal events such as those that are talked about here. It's definitely worth a watch if you're interested at all in 'close encounters', like any of the three actors I mentioned, and can appreciate and enjoy the 70's style of television making. My copy was in my infamous Mill Creek 50-pack 'Nightmare Worlds'.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Some stock footage is buzzed by UFOs and a bunch of soldiers talk about it in a locked room. You can watch this with your eyes closed, it's radio on your telly. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member So slow and boring, and it doesn't lead any where. It starts off looking like it might be interesting, but by the end it's just a lot of people talking and nothing gets resolved. Skip it if you wish. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Pscho-thriller that pits the individual against the military establishment. A television film that shows its poor quality, yet the cast and plot make up for that. Recommended.

Not entirely a UFO sci fi film, but its more of some vast coverup to prevent panic. The victims of this cruel charade are those, like truth-seeking Glenn Ford who becomes some ex-team player in a nation where the team isn't worth playing for.

To hijack a plane like this is a bit weird but I guess it served its purpose REVIEWS: 50% Slightly above average made for television film, helped tremendously by the presence of Glenn Ford. Reasonably suspenseful. Cast Glenn Ford as Col. Pete Moore Bradford Dillman as Maj. Mike Dunning David Soul as Capt. Roy Bishop Robert F. Lyons as Ckapt. Cliff Riggs Guy Stockwell as Lt. Col.
