Tactical Assault ★★½ 1999 (R)

During the Gulf War, Air Force pilot John Holiday (Hauer) loses it under pressure and nearly shoots down an unarmed passenger jet. Pilot Lee Banning (Patrick) is forced to shoot down Holiday's plane instead to save the situation. But Holiday doesn't see things that way and decides to get revenge on Lee. Good action in what's really a revenge thriller. 89m/C VHS, DVD . Rutger Hauer, Robert Patrick, Isabel Glasser, Ken Howard; D: Mark Griffiths. VIDEO
