God what is with me and all these slow burn movies I'm watching lately. Here I was trying to mix it up a bit and fell way short. Yeah, I know this was a 1970's movie and  I should know better. But It's Charles Bronson for crap sakes there should be things blowing up and people dieing left and right. All we get is a movie of a tough guy learning to fly a helicopter and airplane. Woopty frigging do! And Robert Duvall is so stoned and ugly in this movie you almost do not recognize him. 
                       
The good, one really cool death scene on a runway... yeah that's about it.

Sorry Charlie...
