Where''s the adventure?!
23 October 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Despite this film being brought to us by Tiffany Studios, it is FAR from a high class and quality production. "Wings of Adventure" is incredibly slow, dull and full of too many story elements that just make you wonder is anyone liked this movie when it debuted.

The film begins with a pilot and his completely unfunny comic relief friend having engine problems and they are forced to land their airplane. However, instead of getting back to the Army, they are soon kidnapped by Mexican rebels--sort of like Pancho Villa...except the leader seems about as Mexican as bratwurst! Soon, they are forced back to the revolutionary headquarters where absolutely nothing happens for the longest time. Sure, they eventually escape...but it seems to take forever because the film is so low energy, talky (like many of the early talking pictures) and features a leading man with the same charisma as blue cheese. By this point, this stupefyingly dull film just about made me comatose--mostly because with the word ADVENTURE in the title, you'd think it would be exciting and full of action...which is isn't! Instead, there are lots of irrelevant musical numbers and romance...very unconvincing romance at that. The bottom line is that the film is never enjoyable in the least. Heck, instead of seeing this film, you'd be better of bashing yourself in the head with a mackerel! Dull and pointless and cheap.
