Pretty bad
31 October 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

That this was definitely not a great production. Although I admit that the story was entertaining and the acting wasn't bad. The computer generated imaging was terrible, and in almost in every scene I could see historical inaccuracies. All in all, a very amateurish production. Here are some factual inaccuracies I found.

  • The DC-3 shown was equipped with the wrong engines (modern


turboprops), and of course sounded nothing like a DC-3.

  • One scene shows a de Havilland Chipmunk trainer in a hangar. There


were no Chipmunks in service in 1940; the first one flew in 1946.

  • The RCAF ensign with maple leaf roundel was not in use in 1940. Use


of the RCAF ensign with the leaf in the roundel wasn't used until 1941. If you saw a flag in 1940 it would have been the RAF ensign.

  • The USAAF landed in Gander in a Lancaster bomber. The USAAF did not


use Lancasters, and certainly couldn't have been using them in 1940 since they were not yet in active operational service.

  • A modern dial tone could be heard during overseas telephone calls


between Bennett and Lord Beaverbrook.
