Later, when Lenny pulls Kyle out of the trunk (boot) of the car at the airport, he has white underwear (at 01:12:48 to 01:12:50). See more »

Awesome
5 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saw this movie screened at the Garden State Film Festival in Asbury Park, NJ on 3/4/08. The release title is "The Flyboys". This film was the premiere showing at the event.

I loved it. Great storyline and acting, excellent blend of emotion and action. The entire audience was fully engaged from start to finish.

Producer/Director Rocco DeVilliers answered questions from the audience after the screening... two details remained with me... the film was done with a $2M budget, and it has been shopped to the majors with all taking a pass. Big thumbs UP to the first detail, and a big thumbs DOWN to the second. As someone said earlier, somebody should lose their gig for not picking up on this gem!

This is a movie I will buy on DVD for repeated viewing, though I will DEFINITELY have to see it again on the large screen.
