It's what we call it when we lose a nuclear weapon

I don't know what's scarier, losing nuclear weapons, or that it happens so often there's actually a term for it.

Broken Arrow (1996), that movie with John Travolta, Christian Slater, and Howie Long (remember when he was in that Elvis movie with Ice-T in 2001?). Wait a second, this movie isn't really Sci-Fi related is it? Most of the movie isn't, but the premise definitely is. Originally, when I was young, I thought their aircraft was just a B-2 Spirit stealth bomber, which is already pretty damn cool. However, when researching this blog post, I found out it wasn't a B-2, but a "B-3" stealth bomber. It has that familiar wedge shape of the B-2, but it's slightly different, and as far as I know it's not a real thing. And what else could possibly make a "not really Sci-Fi" movie more spicy? Nuclear weapons? Lost nuclear weapons? Stolen nuclear weapons in the hands of a guy with a head full of bad wiring? Yeah. That's what we want. Side note; Under Siege 2 (1995) technically did this story first, but it's not exactly a novel idea, so we'll forget that - Under Siege 2 blog post sounds good, maybe later.

I can't forget to mention director John Woo, that would be a tragedy. And I definitely have to talk about the setting and atmosphere. 90s America, perfection, so it's off to a good start. But we've got the cockpit of the secret B-3 bomber, the Arizona desert, the military base command center, the underground abandoned mine, the desert canyon, the river, and of course the train at the end.

Is it a Sci-Fi movie? Let's just call it a 90s action movie with Sci-Fi elements and forget the argument. It's not an award winning movie but it fits in with everything else on this blog thus far, so it gets a thumbs up from me.

Would you mind not shooting at the thermonuclear weapons?
