Not even worth a rental, 23 January 2012
This is a very unfortunate attempt to tell an important story and is a
disservice to the men who lived these historic events. The character
development is non-existent and portrays these men in a stereotypical
light. The portrayal of the German pilots creates a comic book
atmosphere, you can almost see the dialog bubble above their heads
saying "Curses! Foiled again!" as they sneer at their adversaries. The
flight sequences remind me of those from 1940s and 1950s films where
the "planes" are plastic models on cables with the cameras panning the
model to depict motion. The only flight sequences which are realistic
are the landing and take-off scenes. I am extremely disappointed in
this film and expected much more from Lucas.
