Broken Arrow (1996)

broken_arrow_LB01524_LBy Scott Goldfine

Chinese action film sensation John Woo directs John Travolta as a military pilot who steals two nuclear bombs and demands a government ransom in this standard-issue genre piece. Travolta’s “perfect” plan is foiled by adversarial co-pilot Christian Slater and a park ranger.

The movie’s efficient presentation is undermined by a retread story, a laughable Travolta and a stiff, miscast Slater. Rated R.
