To the segment of our audience who noticed flaws in certain historical and technical aspects of our film: we strove to be as accurate as we were able to afford. This movie was a labor of love, born out of respect for the men of the Army Air Corps who both flew and supported the operations of B-17s during WWII. Unfortunately, much of the equipment that might of increased the accuracy of our sets no longer exists, and those people who still own and operate B-17s were not forthcoming with assistance in providing us with access to planes. We were forced to do what many generations of film makers and G.I.s had to do before us: Make do. So, to those who were unable to enjoy the film due to glaring inaccuracies, we offer our deepest condolences. No doubt, you will find a community of like-minded, disappointed individuals on the Internet to validate your outrage at such historical inaccuracies, such as the lack of small wall tents, or the wrong gauge rivets in the cockpit windows. We hope, that in time, you will forgive us. See more »
Its not a big budget groundbreaking movie by any means,but some of the reviews are seriously flawed here! The acting while not the best,is not bad either,who cares if it doesn't have an all star cast? Movies do NOT need big budget actors to be good,in fact there are plenty of utter trash movies out there with Big names galore.
There was plenty of action in this movie,and a decent storyline(its a war movie!) I treated myself to this movie on Bluray I enjoyed it that much,now atonement on the other hand,well lets just say that I would like that part of my life back please
I've decided to give this movie an 8 partly because I feel that people giving it less than 5 have a problem with less well known actors,and it really did deserve a better rating than the 4.5 that its currently sitting at!
Its worth a watch,DVD or online rentals are cheap enough these days that its not going to hurt you to take the time to watch this movie,and enjoy it!
