Sweeping, yet dull at times, account of 1st aircraft carriers...
1 June 2003 | by (Evansville, Indiana USA) – See all my reviews

1st watched 5/31/2003 - 4 out of 10(Dir-Sergei Nolbandov): Sweeping, yet dull at times, account of 1st aircraft carriers in the British navy. What starts out as a sales pitch for the British Navy slowly turns into a romantic drama, next comes war action, and then it's over(with "guess who" winning). The movie is set in World War II and the nazi's are portrayed as conniving and evil just as we all would expect them to be displayed. The Admiral's daughter bounces between 3 pilots until she finds the once whom she wants to marry which is displayed as a love triangle. This whole thing kind of gets forgotten in the last 1/2 hour due to the final battle scenes but it seemed out of place anyway. Good for nostalgia but not a great movie with some good scenes from the pilots perspective but not much else.
