Summary:

It features the Lockheed F-104 Starfighter in action. If you want to call it action. Basically they fly around, get refueled, and fly around some more….

I figured I’d throw this one up as a lark.  As an “I dare you to watch this” type of thing.  Oh, and it’ll be one of the few times I get to mention Mystery Science Theater 3000 on this site, so WIN.

The Starfighters is a Cold War airplane flick, plain (ha) and simple.  It features the Lockheed F-104 Starfighter in action.  If you want to call it action.  Basically they fly around, get refueled, and fly around some more….

And not much else.  Seriously.  It adds new dimension to the word “suck.” I like love airplane films (see the previous review of Bombers B-52, and Strategic Air Command), but this brought a facepalm.

So its perfect fodder for Mike, Crow, and Tom to rail on.  And they do it in grand style here.  I’ll shut up and let the film, and our heroes speak for themselves.

Oh, the rating I’m giving is for the film itself, NOT for the MST3K lampooning, which would get an 8 or 9 at least, because its the only thing what makes this thing bearable.

Enjoy.
