Released in May 1992, Interceptor is an action and suspense film directed by Michael Cohn and starring Andrew Divoff as the heroic Captain Christopher Winfield. Winfield is an American Air Force Captain specially chosen to test pilot experimental military C-5 bombers in Eastern Europe. Somewhere over Turkey, Captain Winfield's stealth fighter begins to malfunction, and he is forced to eject from his seat and allow his experimental bomber to crash to the ground. As the other experimental C-5s perform flawlessly, the Air Force moves to recall Captain Winfield for a military court martial. A resentful Captain Winfield is then arrested and held in the cargo bay of Major Janet Morgan's (Elizabeth Morehead) experimental C-5 bomber. The plane sets a course back toward the United States where Captain Winfield will await trial.
Meanwhile, the crash site of Captain Winfield has drawn the attention of an evil terrorist cell led by a man named Phillips (Jurgen Pochnow). Phillips is fascinated by the experimental bombers with their special Virtual Reality control circuits and is zealous to acquire this specialized technology. Phillips decides to mobilize his crew of hired mercenaries and terrorists to hijack Major Morgan's C-5 bomber while it is still mid-flight. The American crew is caught off guard and not prepared for battle. They are quickly and violently put down by the mercenaries, leaving only Captain Winfield free to move about the plane.
Using only his wits, military training and desire to restore his honor, Captain Winfield alone is left to fight the terrorist cell. His acts of heroism can only end in his own destruction and the death of Major Janet Morgan and her crew or the salvation of the top secret experimental fighter plane and every American left alive on board.
Interceptor features a soundtrack produced by the award winning composer Rick Marvin. The film is rated R for violence, language and adult situations.
