A good action short
24 December 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched it for the action scene and it was amazing. It was better and more realistic than so many old films and so many foreign films. Compare this to the Russian "Nochnye lastochki" and the latter's flight scenes look like the work of a film student.

The cockpit shots, the dogfight, the squadron vs squadron, the dashboard shot, the camera work, the sound, etc. It might be the best dogfight I've ever seen on film, despite it lasting for barely 3 minutes.

It's a good watch, but too short to have a meaningful story or a higher score.

With a good story, a full-length story I mean, I have no doubt that this crew could've made the best aviator/pilot films ever. If this were a trailer, I'd be counting the days to see the full film, but alas, this is all there is to it.
