Goofs

The Japanese radio announcer makes multiple references to the "Imperial Japanese Air Force". There was no such component of the Japanese military - the Japanese Army and Navy each had an air arm (and if the enemy fighters were Zeroes, they would have been flown by Naval aviators.) See more »

Quotes

Big Mike Harrigan: [Last lines] They who had scorned the thought of any strength except their own to lean on learned at length, how fear can sabotage the bravest heart. And human weakness, answering to the prod of terror, calls: "Help us, O God." Then silence lets the silent voice be heard, bringing its message like a spoken word, "Believe. Believe in me. Cast out your fear. Oh, I am not up there beyond the sky, but here, right here in your heart. I am the strength you seek. Believe."... And they believed.

Worth your time:
9 July 2003 | by Ron-181See all my reviews

The story is loosely based on Robert L. Scott's autobiography. The picture made towards the end of World War II is a fairly typical war time film. The story does give some accurate details on the Flying Tigers and there total dominance over the numerically superior Japanese forces. Colonel Scott was a legitimate ace during the war and his story is worth watching. I rated this a 7.
