Memorable Quotes and Dialog:
"You're a patriot, not a businessman."
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: 2/5 -- Sir. No, sir. 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
Los Angeles Times
When an international enemy turns to high-tech weaponry, the U.S. Army enlists the aid of the Apaches - America's elite airborne task force specially trained for aerial assault. Flying the world's most advanced attack helicopters, these hotshot Fire Birds battle an evasive foe.
When the United States Army and the Drug Enforcement Agency join forces to break up a South American drug and terrorism operation, a crack army helicopter pilot goes into training to learn how to fly the special Apache aircraft needed for the mission. At the same time he tries to resurrect an old romance with a tough female pilot who is also preparing to go into combat.
