I saw it all 25 years ago in Firefox, when Clint Eastwood stole the Mach 6 (!!!) experimental Russian fighter with the neuron-impulse fire control system. As a side note, the nazi who got the medallion burned into his hand in the first scenes of Indiana Jones and The Lost Ark plays a good-guy dissident Russian scientist in Firefox.

I know it was the 80s, but couldn't they do better than the sped up footage to imply hyper sonic travel?

They did that thing where the plane's engines suck water up off the surface of the ocean it was so fast. And it made its own snowstorm in its wake when it was over land. That was, like, you know, fast.

By the way, not so fast (heh heh) on dogging out the sped up thing to imply greater speed (btw, isn't that by its very definition "increased speed"?). Seems I recall the Fresh Prince trying to outfly an alien ship in the canyons in Independence Day, and IIRC it relied chiefly on the fx of, you know, fast film.

Yeah, but that was the Grand Canyon, a tight and confined space where watching the walls whip by looked good. The Siberan Wasteland however, eh. Didn't go it for me, I guess. (And from a 'I kinda paid attention in high school physics' standpoint, since everything on the film is sped up the same amount, the relative speed stays the same. Yeah, you'd feel like you got there faster, but the Earth has rotated with a propionate speed and everything in the universe has gone along its way in a similar manner. You would, from a pratical stand point, arrive at the same time.) [From a non pratical stand-point, you'd be implying time is a quantative attribute of the universe serperate from space, which is pretty mind blowing when you think on it for a minute.]

Hey I just saw that movie a few days ago. That was like the saddest excuse for a climactic ending in history. I mean, the Russian pilot lets you recover from a crazy maneuver in repayment for sparing him earlier, and then salutes you signifying an honorable return to dueling status, then you shoot him down with some pansy ass cheapshot from a rear mounted gun-END MOVIE

:(

Just dont compare with a good dozen-episode buildup and climax found in your average anime.

EDIT: John Walker - Since you dont actually see the rest of the world, you can only assume that it is moving at that sped up rate. Until you actually make an observation of the rest of the world it exists in both "normal speed" and "sped-up speed." Or something like that. ;)

EDIT2: Even "The Fury" had a better ending.

I don't think the Schronider's cat thing applies to the whole universe, but either way we can see the sun and the Earth in it, so for Earthlings its about the same.

I missed Firefox so I could watch The Last Starfighter instead... or was it The Neverending Story??? side note.. has anyone noticed the young David Caruso in FirstBlood? Sorry, I watched it right after Carl Weatherspoon got his arm shot off by the Predator.
