A character called Fokker?

Author: Shawn Watson from The Penumbra
10 June 2010

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Looks like Young Indy beat the Ben Stiller movie to the joke.

Directed by Ben Burtt, who won an Academy Award for his sound editing on The Last Crusade (and who is also the voice of Wall-E), this entry is a little more cohesive than previous Young Indy features and contains more adventure.

Indy and Remy transfer themselves out of the Belgian Army in with the French where they are split up. Remy is sent away as a spy and Indy a reconnaissance photographer. Many dogfights and scenes with crashing aircraft follow. The Red Baron (Marc Warren, looking like Neil Patrick Harris' twin brother) shows up and involves himself in a fictional vendetta with Indy.

It never really gets boring and avoids the history lessons that have bogged down some of the others. Enough new locations, plot developments and characters prevent this from happening, but sometimes I have a hard time following which people were real and which people are just made up to advance the story.

One of the better Young Indy adventures.

Look for Anthony Daniels

First off, sound man Ben Burtt proves he can direct here. Attack of the Hawkmen is one of the most fun Young Indy episodes. As a bonus, if you are a Lucas fan, you may spot Threepio Anthony Daniels with a French accent in one scene, as Francois, where Indy is briefed in a big hurry by a couple of scientist types. I am surprised his credit is not more prominently featured here on the net. You have to click MORE to get the full credit list. It's just a cameo, but refreshing for those of us baffled how Star Wars actors can be so seldom used.

Another brilliant adventure

Author: Alain English from London, England
4 November 2009

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

After his encounter with Albert Schweitzer on the shores of the Congo river, Indiana Jones (Sean Patrick Flannery) decides to dedicate himself to ending the war any way he can. To this end, he enlists in the French Intelligence Services. On his first mission, he is caught in a series of aerial duels between fighter pilots Charles Nungesser and Baron Manfred von Richthofen. Later he tries to persuade genius engineer Anthony Fokker to defect from the Germans to the Allies...

The first segment with the fighter pilots is easily the most exciting, with some spectacular flying action sequences. The production values of this series have never been better displayed. The second segment ends in a fight in a plane factory, but has an excellent, thought-provoking scene between Indy and an apathetic Anthony Fokker, well played by Craig Kelly. Stephen Toomey is delightfully charming as the dashing Nungesser and look out for a young Marc Warren as the deadly 'Red Baron' von Richthofen.

Stirring historical drama, a good change of direction from previous episodes and one of the series' best.

Good "Young Indy" movie, covering a period in WW I.

Author: TxMike from Houston, Tx, USA, Earth
11 January 2009

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Sean Patrick Flanery stars as "young" Indiana Jones. Set in 1917 and 1918, Indy is assigned to a Belgian unit, for espionage, but not doing very much. So he and a cohort forge documents to get themselves into the French military. The USA is not yet in WW I.

Successful, Indy gets assigned to the Lafayette Escadrille, a company mostly of Americans who volunteered. His assignment is "photography" and he assumed it would be developing film and analyzing photos. Instead he was to go up in planes as a passenger and take the aerial photos. When he told everyone there "I'm only here for two weeks" they laughed because the longest any photographer lasted in their Company was 8 days!!

The story here is fiction, but it includes two key historical figures. The German ace known as "The Red Baron" and the Dutch plane designer Tony Fokker. As the movie unfolds Indy is given the assignment to sneak into Germany, posing as a German, and try to convince Fokker to leave the service of Germany and design planes for the Allies.

The movie takes a form much like the blockbuster "Indiana Jones" movies with Harrison Ford. Flanery uses expressions similar to what Ford might, has many of the same phobias, but never hesitates to jump into action when the situation calls for it.

The DVD has a number of extras and the two I enjoyed was a 27-minute feature on the real Red Baron, his life and his death. Also a similar length feature on Fokker and how he ended up in the aviation business in the USA in the years after the war. Ironically he died in his 40s after developing an infection following surgery on his sinuses.

I didn't even get to see all of this movie, but I saw most of it. The movie was all right. Young Indy had to venture into Germany and deliver some paper to a German industrialist. It's not a bad story, but the ending was a little inconclusive. Still, I'd give it about a 6//10.
