Imagine TOP GUN without the aerial dogfights, without its stars, without a script, and without a budget, you'll have a decent idea of what WAR BIRDS is like. Somewhat harder to convey is the slow, numbing experience of sitting through this militaristic bargain-basement baloney, involving

of cheesy-looking prop instrument panels, guys in rented off-the-rack uniforms standing around and shouting into prop telephones (describing battles the director evidently didn't have the money to shoot), lots of stock footage of F-16s, and that perennial staple of low-budget action movies, plenty

of things getting blown up.
