Verdict on Air Force the Movie: Selagi Bernyawa
Air Force the Movie: Selagi Bernyawa is an action combat movie following a group of survivors fighting back against a militia. It shows us the small group that is a mix of soldiers and civilians that need to work together. We also get to see a military operation looking to rescue their people.
This does create a fictional war that sees brutality on one side and a calmer approach on the other. They need to use their skills to survive being outnumbered and overcome the odds. It has a brutal wartime style to everything the survivors go through. Doesn’t hold back on the body count. This is a large-scale movie mixing parts of ‘Behind Enemy Lines’ into modern conflicts.
