Rating: C+ -- In a certain way, with the help of insomnia and perhaps the closure of one eye, Fire Birds actually works in a minor key. Let's just say it's the best 77-minute Apache helicopter actioner starring Nicolas Cage I've ever seen. Full Review

Rating: 1/5 -- We get five minutes of halfway-decent action that hardly makes up for the other 90 minutes of this lukewarm diarreah-fest. Full Review

Fire Birds resembles a morale booster project leftover from the Reagan era. Full Review

Rating: 1/4 -- If you think of movies as big-screen video games, see Fire Birds. If not, you may want to skip this Top Gun with copters and cartels. Full Review

Rating: 1/4 -- David Green structures the film in the mold of the time-honored boys-into- men military exercise, but don't go looking for The Sands of Iwo Jima. Full Review

Rating: 1.5/5 -- Lean, mean, clean and empty-hearted, Fire Birds is a video-game recruiting poster with a bomb ticking inside--a bomb that never goes off. Full Review
