Deadly Encounter vs Birds of Prey
Has anyone noticed the similarities between Deadly Encounter and the 1973 film Birds of Prey?
1. Hero flies a Hughes Helicopter
2. Villians snatch girl in a Aeospatiale Lama Helicopter
3. There is the same "stand-off" where the hero's and villains helis cirle round each other (in Deadly Encounter the scene is over the water)
4. The "road landing" - in Birds of Prey the hero lands on the road for a fuel top-up from a lorry, whist in Deadly Encounter there's a landing on the trailer of a moving lorry!
I still love both films though!
