Synopsis

Three fast-paced action movies. In 'Broken Arrow' (1995), embittered US Air Force pilot Vic Deakins (John Travolta) goes AWOL during a test flight for a new nuclear-equipped fighter plane, attempting to gun down his co-pilot, Riley Hale (Christian Slater), before making off with its deadly warheads. Hale enlists the help of park ranger Terry Carmichael (Samantha Mathis) to bring his errant partner to justice, and to save his country from nuclear devastation. Directed by action specialist John Woo. In 'The Siege' (1998), FBI/NYPD anti-terrorist officer 'Hub' Hubbard (Denzel Washington) is called into investigate when a Brooklyn bus is bombed. The perpetrators are demanding the release of Sheik Ahmed Ben Talal, who has been kidnapped by US General William Devereaux (Bruce Willis). Hub focuses his initial search on Brooklyn's Arab community, but is shadowed by CIA operative Elise Kraft (Annette Bening), whose contact in Palestine intimates that the real problem lies elsewhere. Before Hub or Kraft can act, however, the FBI headquarters are also bombed, and Deveraux imposes a state of martial law. In 'Chain Reaction' (1996), Eddie Kasalivich (Keanu Reeves) and Lily Sinclair (Rachel Weisz) are part of a team of scientists who have developed a new energy source. When their lab is sabotaged and their team leader killed, they become prime suspects. They set out to clear their names and find the real culprit, but the man with the key to the solution is a powerful bureaucrat (Morgan Freeman), who may or may not be on their side.
