Not Clint’s best, but not bad by any means
Firefox is an espionage Cold War era action/thriller that is slick looking and competently made. It had some state of the art special f/x for its time and is one of Clint’s most expensive productions. In comparison to his other work, Firefox is neither his best or worst film work. Clint’s performance is okay, but the story is really held together by an excellent supporting cast of very talented British actors. Due to the subject matter and f/x, this movie is definitely dated and easily fits in the Reagan era of Cold War action movies and thrillers like Rambo First Blood PT2, Red Dawn and The Hunt For Red October. All of the above are much better, but is not laughable like guilty pleasure Iron Eagle(which I actually like a lot, but can’t take seriously). Firefox is a serious minded production, but does not hold up as well against Clint’s better movies or similar, more memorable movies that came out during the same period.
Arguably the least interesting of Eastwood’s self-directed films.
It’s not often that Clint Eastwood serves up a boring film, but Firefox is certainly one of his few mis-steps. Clint the director seems excessively fussy about the complexities of the plot while Clint the actor seems so indifferent that one wonders if he wishes he were somewhere else. The original Craig Thomas novel on which the film is based is actually an exciting and well-crafted piece of fiction (I know because I’ve read it) but this big-screen adaptation sadly misfires on all cylinders.
Former American pilot Mitchell Gant (Eastwood) has moved to a secluded corner of Alaska following his traumatic ordeal in a Vietnamese prison camp. He is approached for a highly sensitive mission when the Western governments learn that the Russians have developed a new, incredibly advanced supersonic fighter jet. Gant’s extraordinarily dangerous mission involves going behind the Iron Curtain and stealing the new super plane from its impregnable hangar.
The film trundles along for 136 minutes, but it actually feels much longer. The first 100 minutes of that running time is particularly hard to endure, with an interminable series of cloak-and-dagger exchanges, tediously repetitive flashbacks, and the usual murky plot build-up that goes with he territory in these ubiquitous spy thrillers. The final half an hour or so is slightly more tolerable as it shows Gant piloting the jet out of Russia, pursued by a duplicate jet across the Arctic skies. The aerial special effects are rather unconvincing during this climactic showdown, but at least there’s a little excitement (something markedly lacking from the rest of the movie). Maurica Jarre provides a good music score which is probably the best thing about the film. Firefox is a failure on most levels and is strictly one for Clint’s most die-hard fans.
