"Blu-Ray Disc, Beyond High Definition."
Two military pilots (John Travolta, Christian Slater) engage in a no-holds-barred battle against time and each other in a race to recover two stolen nuclear warheads. A supersonic hit from renowned action director John Woo, Broken Arrow is "a breathless non-stop joyride." (Dennis Cunningham, WCBS-TV).

"...a breathless non-stop joyride.  Dennis Cunningham, WCBS-TV
"...inspired casting of Travolta...action keeps escalating...  Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"It will blow you away!  Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Editor's Note
"Broken arrow" is a military term for a nuclear warhead that has been stolen -- and villainous Air Force pilot Vic Deakins (John Travolta) has done just that. In fact, he's pilfered TWO bombs, in an effort to extract a huge amount of cash from the government in exchange for their safe return. However, there's a fly in the ambitious thief's ointment: Riley Hale (Christian Slater), Vic's former co-pilot, whom Vic thought he had killed when he robbed the bombs. Helping Riley is gutsy female Park Ranger Terry Carmichael (Samantha Mathis). Together the duo uses all the artillery, ammo, vehicles, and gumption they can muster, as they risk life and limb to thwart Vic and his vile gang. Hong Kong action specialist John Woo propels the film through trains, Humvees, exploding helicopters and more.

San Francisco Examiner 8 of 10
As Americans, we've seen plenty of action in our movies. Maybe too much. Creating a credible action film that will give us something we haven't seen before is just as challenging as creating drama that isn't pure mush or comedy that's truly funny. John Woo is one of the few directors who's cut out for the job...Broken Arrow offers what his previous American film, Hard Target, lacked - a star that carries the weight of finely choreographed chaos. John Travolta gives a performance that lives up to the hoopla of his comeback. It is both iconic and convincing: He makes you aware at every moment that you are watching a Travolta star turn. - Barry Walters

ReelViews 8 of 10
By another name, Broken Arrow is Speed gone nuclear. Yet, despite all the explosions, violence, special effects, and other choreographed excesses, this film doesn't have quite the same impact. It's fun, to be sure, and the wild ride doesn't let up for a moment, but the level of tension isn't quite as high. It probably has something to do with the premise -- after all, the threat of a nuclear holocaust isn't quite as unique an idea as a bus that will blow up if it decelerates below 50 mph...The preposterous thrills in Broken Arrow take the characters from a fight aboard a stealth bomber to a car chase across the flats of Utah to the bowels of a disused copper mine to a speeding train. The pace is relentless; Woo never allows the excitement to flag. In the end, Broken Arrow is an exhilarating, if empty, experience. - James Berardinelli
