Before their third bombing mission over Germany the crew of the Boomerang prayed under the wing of the aircraft. It was then that the pilot, Charles Arnett, knew he wasn't coming back. He went anyway. His son, Mark Arnett, spent 14 years making a documentary about how his dad was shot down over Germany, spent eleven months as prisoner of war, and returned home to marry the girl he had only met three times. But Mark could never seem to finish the documentary. In March of 2008, Mark's father passed away. Mark finished it in a week. Written by
Mark William Arnett
I'm grateful for my iPhone. I don't know how I could have survived this movie without it. My dad said it got great reviews, none of which I can find online, except for the other "user" reviews on IMDb.
This Arnette guy has an ego the size of a ww2 bomber plane. He spends the first half mugging the camera in scenes that should have just been extras on the DVD. Then his dad takes over to tell his war story and the real boredom starts. The part where his plane crashes is like 20 minutes of talking. I looked over and saw both of my parents asleep...so much for brevity being the soul of wit.
I guess it's a decent flick if you knew the guy or are family, but for everyone else it's a chore to endure.
