Goofs

(at around 5 mins) The bombardier admonishes the pilot to "keep it steady". However the Norden bombsight used by the B-17 was connected to the plane's autopilot. The bombsight flew the plane, not the pilot, while making an actual bomb run. The pilot was not in control, so he was in no position to keep the plane steady. See more »

Crazy Credits

In the end credits, it says that "No B-17s were harmed in the making of this film". See more »

Not too bad at all
20 April 2012 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

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!
