Broken Arrow

John Travolta plays a crack fighter pilot who threatens to destroy an American city with stolen nuclear warheads, and Christian Slater is a younger pilot who’s out to stop him; John Woo directed this giddy, mindless jaunt with polish but only a modicum of personal investment from a script by Graham Yost (whose equally mindless script for Speed seems more influential here than any of Woo’s earlier pictures). With Samantha Mathis, Delroy Lindo, Frank Whaley, Bob Gunton, and Howie Long. (JR)
