Trivia

Perhaps it was done for a reason. But in the dogfight sequences there is no swastika visible on the tails of the German fighters. The normal Luftwaffe "livery" was the German cross on the wings and fuselage and the swastika on the tail. See more »

Goofs

On several occasions they use the American pronunciation LOO-tenant for lieutenant rather than the British LEFT-tenant. See more »

Solid WWII film.
26 January 2014 | by (Sarajevo B&H) – See all my reviews

This a solid air force WWII film. It goes well with the computer games my kids used to play when they were little.

I enjoyed this film, special effects were not up to the par. Was it like this in the real war? Acting is sometimes good, sometimes bad, I am not sure which way it is swaying.

The scenes of crash landing should of been done better, you can see it was some sort of special effect which did not turn out the best.

Plot is similar to any other WWII films of this type.

Camera work, is sometimes excellent, like the scene when they are running in the forest. Sometimes not so good, like in the plane sometimes.

If you like good WWII action film this one is for you.
